Green Ridge closed out the regular season with a 74-60 nonconference home win over Santa Fe on Thursday.
The Lady Tigers (16-9), who will face the Lady Chiefs again in the district tournament on Saturday, held quarter leads of 24-21, 33-32 and 62-29.
“Obviously, the big third quarter propelled us,” said Green Ridge coach Donnie Mayes. “It was a back-and-forth, up-and-down game until then.”
Libby Dove paced Green Ridge with 22 points, Clare Chamberlin added 17 and Samantha Unkel notched 12. Dove and Hali Niceswander each had six rebounds, and Niceswander doled out eight assists.
