Lady Lakers fall to 11-3 after Clinton County loss
In Jan. 22 Issue
By Derek Aaron
Times Journal Sports Editor

The Lady Lakers lost to the Clinton County Lady Bulldogs last Friday night by a score of 56-43, dropping their season record to 11-3.

Kim Pierce led the ladies with 16 points while Rachael Miller scored 10.

“Clinton County outplayed us,” said RCHS Coach Craig Pippen “They did a much better job executing their offense against our man defense.”

Pippen said the big difference in the game was his team’s poor shooting performance. Russell County shot 33 percent from the field for the game.

“We did not shoot the ball well and that reflected other facets of the game,” he said.

“When you have a poor shooting night, you better make it up on the defensive side of the ball.”

Pippen said he blamed himself for the team’s poor performance.

“We did a poor job preparing for this game defensively and that is my fault,” he said. “I did a poor job getting our players ready to play and preparing for this game. It all falls on my shoulders and I will make sure we are better prepared the next time we play them.”

Pippen said his guardplay could have been better on the offensive end.

“Our guards passed up on some open looks and that was a bit uncharacteristic of our team,” he said.

“We are still a young team with no seniors. We have done a great job considering who we lost from last years team and the job our players have done filling the voids of Michelle Copley and Ashley Franklin,” he said.

LeeAnn Grider and Lindsay Ramage scored six points each for Russell County.

Julie Wethington scored three points and Kyla Thomas added two points.

Clinton County’s bench outscored Russell County’s 21-5 in the game, another area where the Lady Lakers were lacking.

Pippen said he looked at the game as a tool to help prepare for future big games.

“We have another half of the season to prepare for and I like our chances in post season play,” he said.

“We have a lot of work to do and I know our players are excited about the remainder of the season.”
