Lebanon's Devilettes improved to 9-10 on the season, 2-3 in the district, following Tuesday's 59-39 victory over Gallatin at Jerry Vrandenburg Gymnasium.
Coach Cory Barrett's team went up 11-4 early and was never threatened. Kendra Brown paced LHS with 14 points, Keionna Britton added 11 while Zyrina Neuble, Caleah Shannon and Ireland Elie each had seven.
The Blue Devils trailed throughout the first half, but rallied after intermission to hold off Gallatin 67-63 in the nightcap.
Kobe Neuble led all scorers with 21 points while Cameron Oliver came off the bench for 15 points and 11 rebounds. Point guard Tay Jackson added 14 and post Eddie Jackson finished with seven.
The win snapped Lebanon's modest two-game losing streak, despite seeing the Green Wave sink a dozen 3-pointers.
