Freshman Holly Hoopingarner sank three critical free throws in the final 14 seconds of Wednesday night’s game as Greenwood pulled out a 42-37 girls basketball win at Perry Meridian.

The Class 4A No. 5 Woodmen are now 7-0 for the first time in coach Debbie Guckenberger’s 10-year coaching career at the school.

Despite losing one of its starters to injury for most of the first half and connecting on just 14 of 40 field-goal attempts, Greenwood secured the victory with a strong defensive effort in the game’s closing minutes.
