Lady Wolverines defeat Hornets

WHITMIRE — The Lady Wolverines celebrated their seniors Tuesday night with a region match-up against Dixie. Although the second and third quarters would prove to be rocky, the Lady Wolverines were able to pull out a hard fought 44-19 victory.

“The girls came out and defensively shut the Lady Hornets down in the first quarter, but due to turnovers and unnecessary fouls they were able to creep back in the game and make it a five point game at halftime. The Lady Wolverines would come out a little crazy again in the second half before settling down and going on a 9-0 run to end the third quarter,” said Head Coach Chaz Adams. “The fourth quarter would prove to be the difference and would seem as if the light clicked for the Whitmire offense as they moved the ball and found open look after open look and were able to take advantage of their opportunities. The win takes Whitmire to 8-2 on the region with a chance to get into a tie for first in the next two games.“

The Lady Wolverines were led in scoring by Taylor Peay and Alexus Sanders who both had 11 on the evening. Kaylynn Roche added 10, Raegan Kendrick five, Harleigh McLaren four and Jazmine Curenton three.

The Lady Wolverines were led on the boards by Roche with 12 to give her another double-double. Kendrick added eight, Peay six, Chelsea Goggins four, Harleigh McLaren two and Hailee Robbins one.

As a team, Whitmire accumulated 10 steals, 10 assists and three blocks.
