ND wins one of four against Chiefs

By Brad Greer

Since losing starting forward Erin Snider to a season-ending knee injury in early November, the North Delta Green Wave inside game has been streaky at best. But Hanna Greenlee took care of that problem

The 5-foot-11 senior forward scored 12 points and pulled down four rebounds to help lead the Lady Wave to a 58-32 victory over Magnolia Heights Saturday afternoon in Senatobia.
