Kymberli Stamps scored 24 points and was part of a swarming defense that led Kendrick to a 92-62 win Friday night over Monroe Area in a GHSA Class AAA girls semifinal game at the Macon Coliseum.

Kendrick improved to 30-0 and will play Carrollton at 7 p.m. today at the Coliseum. Monroe Area’s season ended at 25-7.

Janae McKinney added 19, Ashley Barley 12 and Mukia Myrick 11 for Kendrick, which has struggled to break through the semifinals to the championship in recent years.

Ashleigh Isaacson topped Monroe Area with 17 points.
