Still unbeaten Stonewall’s Paige Curtis (14) looks to make a pass during a victory over Colbert earlier this season. Curtis scored four points Friday night to help the undefeated Lady Longhorns (No. 15 in Class A) to their eighth straight victory, 51-33, at Tupelo. Stonewall is the second seed in the girls bracket for this week’s Pontotoc Conference Tournament at Allen.
