Bjorn Walker put an end to the Lambert boys’ perfect region record. Walker, Alpharetta’s 6-foot-5 forward, poured in a game-high 32 points, as the Raiders raced out to a 21-point lead and handed the Longhorns their first Region 6-AAAAAA loss, 75-66, on Friday at Lambert. The loss snapped Lambert’s six-game winning streak, which culminated Dec. 29 as the Longhorns won the Lanier Holiday Tournament for the second year in a row.
