By Bob Putman, Richwood Gazette

North Union clinched the Central Buckeye Conference Mad River Division title on Saturday with a 57-44 road victory over Graham.

It was the Lady Cats’ (9-0 CBC, 13-7 overall) third straight Mad River title and fourth in the last five years.

North Union jumped out to a 7-2 lead in the first quarter, led by a pair of Addison Wedding baskets.

Graham (6-3, 11-10) battled its way back to a tie at 11.

However, a buzzer- beating foul line jumper from Gabby Lindsey gave North Union a 13-11 lead.

The Lady Cats dominated the second quarter, outscoring the Falcons 14-2 for a 27-14 halftime cushion.
