The Lady Lions outscored the Ladybirds 11-6 in the third quarter to make it 41-32, but North Callaway pulled away by outscoring Calvary Lutheran 19-9 in the fourth quarter.
Senior guard Daelyn Schmauch also tallied 18 points, seven rebounds and five assists for the Ladybirds. Sophomore guard Kyanne Kellerman had eight rebounds and five steals.
"It was a good team effort and it was good to get on the winning side," North Callaway head coach Morgan Beamer said.
