South Forsyth girls coach Keith Gravitt would’ve been forgiven for calling timeout and ranting and raving when West opened Saturday’s game on a 15-2 run. He’s not the type to do that, however, and his team doesn’t fret when trailing big. The Lady War Eagles closed to within two after one quarter — two KK Storms 3-pointers finally got South going — and imposed their will the rest of the way to beat West, 62-54.
