Lady Cards slide past RCHS, 49-44
In Feb. 5 Issue
By Derek Aaron
Times Journal Sports Editor

Last Friday night the Lady Lakers traveled to Taylor County and dropped a close one to the Lady Cardinals, 49-44, after making a tremendous fourth quarter comeback.

Coach Craig Pippen’s team was led in scoring by LeeAnn Grider with eight points. Russell County’s record now stands at 11-6 on the season after the close loss.

“We dug ourselves a hole early in the game,” Pippen said. “We came out in slow motion both on defense and offense.”

Pippen said his team picked it up in the fourth quarter and made a game out of it but it was too late.

“We had a nice rally and the players never quit fighting,” he said. “The problem was we didn’t come ready to play.”

The Lady Laker coach said the with his team’s level of talent they cannot afford to come out of the gate lethargic.

“We have to out-work our opponent horn to horn to win,” he said.

“I hope our team begins to understand this principle as we approach the district tournament.”

“We just have to get better with each game, win or lose,” Pippen said. “I feel like we haven’t taken a step forward in the past six games.”

Pippen said he believes his team’s best basketball is still to come.

“If we can begin to take steps forward we will be a much different team by the district tournament,” he said. “I don’t question our team’s work ethic in practice. We just need to take that same intensity and apply it to the games that are left on our schedule in order to get ready for post season play.”

Besides Grider, other Lady Lakers scoring included Regan Helm and Rachael Miller with seven points a piece.

Julie Wethington and Blair Hoover both had six point each. Tyla Bailey and Lindsay Ramage also scored four points each.

Sara McClure also scored two points for Russell County. The Lady Lakers shot 34.7 percent from the field for the game.

Meleigha Pollack scored 16 points to lead the Lady Cardinals.
