Lady Jets overpower Summer Hill Lady Blue Devils

The South Georgia Technical College Lady Jets captured their third straight victory as they rolled to a 90–39 win over the Summer Hill Lady Blue Devils in a make-up non-conference game. The victory moved the Lady Jets to 22–6 overall and left them at 13–3 and tied for second place in the Georgia College Athletic Association conference.

“This was a good game to allow our freshmen to get a lot of good playing time,” said SGTC Lady Jets head coach and Athletic Director James Frey. “We were able to work on some different situations and look ahead to the conference playoffs.” Sophomores TaQuandra Mike and Alexis “Bre” Armstrong as well as freshman Molly Brown did not play at all.

Freshman guard Brittany Delva was the leading scorer for the Lady Jets with 23 points. She was 10 of thirteen from the field with one three point shot and two free throws. She was followed by freshman Cierra Bond who had 22 points. Freshman Deanna Williams added 19 points and then freshman Asia Smith closed out the double-digit scoring with 12 points.

The Jets and the Lady Jets will both return to conference action on Feb. 18, when they travel to Albany to take on Albany Tech on the Albany State College campus. They will travel to Georgia Perimeter College in Decatur on Saturday to close out the conference season for both teams.

The Lady Jets will begin the Region XVII tournament and should host a first round game on Feb. 24. The semi-finals and finals will be played on the home court of the top-seeded team, which right now is Darton. Those games will be played on Feb. 27 -28.

The Jets will host one more non-conference game on Feb. 25 at 7:30 p.m. when they play Fort Benning. They will then begin their Region XVII tournament on Mar. 3. The Jets also have the chance to host a first round playoff. Their finals will be played on Mar. 6-7 at the home of the top-seeded team in GCAA.
