Hot-shooting Ooltewah, which got a career-high 36 points from Ben Snider, raced past Campbell County, 101-81, Friday night in the Rusty Wallace Invitational at Knoxville Karns High School.

Snider, who set a personal-best on Monday with 30 points against East Ridge, also pulled down eight rebounds for the Owls (3-1).

Ooltewah has averaged 86.7 points in its three victories.

The Owls take on host Karns on Saturday night at 7:30.

Edward Montgomery scored 16 points for Ooltewah and C.J. Fritz added 14, helping the Owls to a 54-point second half.

Davin Gillenwater led Campbell County with 19 points and three players – Tucker Cain, Austin North and Dakota Dodson – all had 13.

“We’ve been pretty good at times defensively,” said Ooltewah co-head coach Andre Montgomery. “But we haven’t put a whole game together yet.”

Jared Boyd had eight rebounds, Fritz dished out eight assists and Ta Ta Ross was credited with four steals, coach Montgomery said.
