Preaching defense from the first day of practice every year, Walker Valley stymied McMinn Central to take a 48-42 victory in boys' action on the road Tuesday night.
Meanwhile, Emily Anderson scored a season-high 17 points to help the Lady Mustangs to a 56-50 win over a Johnny Morgan program that is down after two trips to the Class AA state tournament over the last three seasons.
Without Jacobi Lynn, who is now a backup point guard for UTC, the Chargerettes fell to 9-8 overall on the season.
WV's girls led 34-15 at halftime, and despite second half offensive struggles overcame a late charge by McMinn Central.
Haley Jones and Lauren Lay combined for 21 points, while Macey Clark drained a pair of threes for the Lady Mustangs, who are now 9-6 overall.
The Mustangs are now 5-10 overall, after an upset victory over Class AA's sixth-ranked boys team.
