The Lady Scots rolled to a 59-36 win over Lake Highlands on Tuesday, completing a season sweep of the Wildcats and breaking a first-place tie atop the league standings.

HP will take a 12-game winning streak into a bi-district playoff matchup against Haltom on Monday at the Arlington ISD Athletics Center.

Audrey Walker tallied a game-high 16 points and Tyler Corwin added 13 for the Lady Scots, who led 34-14 at halftime and never looked back. Kate Danner added 11 points.
