PRESTON, GA – The Schley County Lady Wildcats (SCHS) started out strong in the first quarter, as they jumped out to a 12-3 lead early and never looked back en route to a 62-8 rout of the Webster County Lady Bobcats (WCH) Tuesday evening, December 5, at Webster County High School.

“I thought we played really well at times. We are still trying to find consistency within our lineup,” SCHS Head Coach Brent Moore said. “We have a good mixture of experienced and younger players, so we are trying to find our best lineup and which players can consistently give us good minutes on both ends of the floor. I am excited for the possibilities of this season if we continue to work hard.”

Jamesen Holloman led the Lady Wildcats in scoring with 15 points and Lily Walker poured in 13. Both Jasmine Dupree and Emma Walker chipped in eight points and Rashandia Sutton scored five in the winning cause.

The Lady Wildcats went on a 12-3 run to start the game and that run was capped off by a basket from Holloman. For the remainder of the quarter, SCHS continued to limit the scoring chances of the Lady Bobcats and continued to increase its lead. By the end of the quarter, the Lady Wildcats had a 21-6 lead.

For the remainder of the first half, SCHS continued to dominate on both ends of the floor. They played tenacious half-court defense and were able to score on the inside and out. As the first half continued, the Lady Wildcats continued to be aggressive at both ends of the court and by the time the horn sounded to signal the end of the first half, SCHS had a 38-6 lead over WCH.

The second half started the same as the first with the Lady Wildcats forcing turnovers and turning them into points. By the time the game had concluded, the Lady Wildcats had defeated WCH by the score of 62-8.

SCHS (2-1) will face Furlow Charter at the GSW Storm Dome on Friday, December 8, at 6 p.m.
