SUMTER -- Just how dominant was the Northwood Academy girls basketball team in today's Class AAA state semifinal against Cardinal Newman?

The Chargers led 10-0 before the Cardinals even got the ball past halfcourt, and were up 30-6 at the end of the first quarter.

The Chargers used relentless defensive pressure and sophomore Amber Campbell's 28 points to post a 77-49 victory and advance to

Saturday's state championship.
