Charleston once again grabbed a big first-quarter lead.

And the Trojans again retained control the rest of the game to earn their second victory in a row to start the girls basketball season, defeating Mt Zion 55-33.

Shae Littleford and Alycia Triplett combined for 11 points in Charleston’s 16-7 first-quarter run.

Littleford finished with 22 total points, Triplett had 13 and seven other Charleston players scored.
