Jeridi Price led the Lady Spartans with 16 points. Blayr Jeffs added 12 and Kim Oldroyd contributed 11. Oldroyd and Price also collected eight and seven rebounds, respectively. Seven Lady Spartans scored in the game.
Emery built a six-point lead going into the half and held on for the win.
The young teamвЂ™s preseason struggles helped build experience and character, which showed as Emery knocked down 80-percent of its free throws.

The Lady Spartans face a difficult test when they host Richfield at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
