In Jan. 7 Issue
By Derek Aaron
Times Journal Sports Editor

The Russell County Lady Lakers moved to 10-4 on the season after a lopsided 72-34 victory over the Campbellsville Lady Eagles Tuesday night at Laker Gym.

“Our girls came out and followed up the Metcalfe County win with another impressive effort,” said Lady Laker coach Craig Pippen.

“Our defensive intensity was good for the most part.”

Russell County shot 39 percent from the field for the game and limited the Lady Eagles to just 26 percent shooting on the night.

The Lady Lakers had three players in double figures, led by senior Kim Pierce's 16 points. Both Junior Lindsay Ramage and freshman Regan Helm poured in 12 points each.

Freshman LeeAnn Grider tallied nine points while senior Rachael Miller added eight points.

Also scoring for Russell County was Blair Hoover with five points, Julie Wethington with four points and both Amanda Cooper and Ally Harris with three points each.

“We turned the ball over 10 times and forced Campbellsville into committing 22 turnovers,” Pippen said.

“We also improved at the free throw line by knocking down 20 out of 24 attempts. Those two stats our crucial for our success this year.” Pippen said.

Pierce shot the ball extremely well, hitting four 3-pointers on the night and putting up her 16 points.

“That is a promising sign,” he said.

“We really need Kim to shoot the ball well and turn in some big defensive games for us down the stretch.”

Ramage also played well and had another double-double with her 12 points and12 rebounds).

“Lindsay continues to prove she has arrived as one of the better power forwards in our region,” Pippen said.

“She has really focused on playing tougher for us and with more intensity and physicality.”

He also lauded Regan Helm as she came off the bench and played extremely well, scoring a dozen points and handing out four assists).

She hit two threes and made a lot of nice passes, Pippen said.

“Regan has improved a lot this year and I am very pleased with her work ethic and team attitude,” he said.

“Many times a player who has had to wait for their turn to play can develop a 'sorry for myself' attitude or even listen to negative remarks from others, but not Regan. She is a team player. She continues to stay focused on what her role is and she keeps stepping up, making plays and making our team better. I am extremely proud of her.”

Russell County has a big district game this Friday night against Cumberland County at Laker Gym.

“We have some improvements and adjustments to make before we play but I do like where our team is at this point of the season,” Pippen said.
