Whether it was stout Lady Cats defense or poor shooting by Hallsville or perhaps a combination of the two, the Lady Cats Basketball Team outscored Hallsville, 27-4, after the first two quarters on their way to a 60-33 district win at home Friday, January 8.
The Lady Bobcats managed only one basket in the first quarter and a pair of free throws in the second quarter. The Lady Cats got a 20 point night from sophomore Kenzie Willis who hit 3 three-point shots. Willis and senior Nylah Lindley did a good job rebounding against a tall Hallsville team. Senior Bre’Asia Ivery used her speed to convert several driving layups as she totaled 11 points. Sophomore Addisyn Wall hit 3 three-pointers for 9 points. Senior Dalanee Myles scored 8 points. Lindley and sophomore Serenity Lewis both had 6 points.
With the win, the Lady Cats improve to 3-2 in district play and 9-6 for the season. The Lady Cats have won three games in a row. Hallsville is now 4-1 in district play and 9-7 for the season.
The Lady Cats won’t have much time to savor their win. They play a district game at Longview Saturday with a JV game at noon and the Varsity game to follow at around 1:15 p.m.
