Our reigning State Champion Lady Lions kicked off their season last night, a week later than expected, against the undefeated Eastern Greene Lady Thunderbirds. We would pick up where we left off last season and quickly put away Eastern Greene. Coach Smith would get every player on the bench sizable minutes. Kalea scored our first points of the season with a 3 from the wing and would go on to lead us in scoring on the night with 21, including a 15 point 3rd quarter. Junior Kylie VanHoy scored 16 with 6 rebounds as well as 6 steals. Senior Brooklynn Jones also ended in double digits with 11 points, 5 assists, and 4 rebounds. Other varsity scorers include Senior Makenzie VanHoy with 7 points, 3 assists, and 4 steals, Senior Isabelle Waggner with 4 points, Seniors Jaelyn Walker, and Delani Bateman with 3 points, and Senior Adie Nolley with 2.
JV went down early and looked to make a comeback, but with a failed attempt at a last-second 3, we would fall just short at 30-33.
With this varsity win, the Lady Lion-winning streak will extend to 10 (counting back to last year) and our record will begin at 1-0. Our next game is Thursday night against the Shoals Lady Jug Rox
