The Arts & Sciences' girls basketball team overcame a five-point halftime deficit to upset regular-season district champion Silverdale Baptist in the teams' 5-A finale Friday night at CSAS.

The Lady Patriots will have the No. 2 seeding for the upcoming district tournament after Friday's 43-36 comeback victory. The CSAS boys also defeated Silverdale on Friday by a 66-36 margin.

In the girls game, Silverdale took a 22-17 halftime lead, but CSAS pulled ahead by one by the end of the third.

Keturah Billen scored 14 of her 18 points in the second half as the Lady Patriots (12-13, 5-2) pulled away to spoil Silverdale's unbeaten district season.

The Lady Seahawks finish 7-1 and will still claim the No. 1 seeding for the district tournament. Emily Harkleroad and Sloane Woodard each contributed 11 points for the Lady Seahawks on Friday, while Brooke Mitchell and Sarah McElvain scored nine apiece for CSAS.

A 27-5 first quarter gave CSAS control in the boys' game, as the Patriots improved to 17-7 overall and 5-2 in district play. Nick Moore led Arts & Sciences with 13 points and Shun Moorer followed with 10, while Silverdale's Jordan Delashmitt led all scores with 17.
