The Lady Cats Basketball Team is trying to get back into the swing of things after some time in quarantine due to coronavirus. They struggled mightily in their lopsided loss at Liberty-Eylau Monday, November 23, in Texarkana. They also started out slow in the first half in their home opener against Mineola Tuesday afternoon.
After leading 10-8 after the first quarter, the Lady Cats trailed at the half 19-16. The Lady Cats looked much better during the second half. They outscored the Lady Jackets, 29-15 in the second half, to take a 45-34 win. The third quarter was the big one for the Lady Cats as they had a 15-4 scoring edge.
Super sophomore Kenzie Willis led the Lady Cats with 26 points. Willis had a three pointer and hit 13 of 18 free throws. Jayla Yarbrough had 9 points including 2 three point baskets. Addy Lamb scored 5 points including a big buzzer beater three-point shot at the end of the third quarter. Jasmine Taylor hit a trey for her 3 points. Delanee Myles got two points but drew praise from Coach Brittney Tisdell for her rebounding and defensive work.
The Lady Cats go into the Thanksgiving break with a 1-1 season record. They resume play next Tuesday at 6 p.m. at home against Terrell.
