Even through the cement walls of Lambert high school, cheers of elation pierced through from the girls visiting locker room on Tuesday night. North Forsyth girls basketball coach Eric Herrick, with a sigh of relief, stood just outside the door, where his team was celebrating a 56-50 win over Lambert that pushed the Lady Raiders to third place in the Region 6-AAAAAA standings. Herrick's team managed to keep its grit—its identity—in a physical victory without its star player Haley Simpson, who went down at the end of last week with an injury.
