The Lady Cats’ basketball team won their pool with two wins Thursday at the Winnsboro Hoopfest. After using a second half rally to edge past Longview, 42-38, the Lady Cats overwhelmed Whitehouse, 76-12.
In the Longview contest at the Winnsboro High School Gym, Sadavia Porter led the Lady Cats with 12 points while Autumn Tanton added 8. Kaylee Jefferson led the Lady Cats with 7 rebounds, 3 blocks and 6 steals. The Lady Cats trailed 15-11 after one quarter and 21-19 at the half before outscoring the Lady Lobos 23-17 over the last two quarters. The late Thursday game against Whitehouse at the Winnsboro Memorial Junior High Gym was a mismatch. Whitehouse managed only two free throws at halftime against a stifling Lady Cats press. The Lady Cats led after one quarter 26-2 and at the half 51-2. The Lady Cats had numerous steals that led to many layups from lots of nice assists. Kaylee Jefferson led the Lady Cats with 28 points. Sadavia Porter added 14 points and Imani Taylor had 13 points. Tori Moore had 7 points including a three-point basket. All nine Lady Cats on the roster scored.
The Lady Cats improved their season record to 6-1. They will play Friday at 9:20 a.m. in the Winnsboro High School Gym against the winner of the late Thursday game between Texas High and Lindale.
