Lady Lakers go 1-1 last week
In Feb. 25 Issue
By Derek Aaron
Times Journal Sports Editor

The Russell County Lady Lakers went 1-1 last week in preparation for this week's district tournament at Clinton County High School.

Last Thursday, coach Pippen's ladies traveled to Campbellsville and picked up a big win over the Lady Eagles, 51-39.

“We played somewhat lethargic,” Pippen said after the game. “Our energy came up in the second half and we put more pressure on their ball handlers.”

He said he played a lot of his players and allowed some of their younger players to get some experience.

“Campbellsville is much improved and we are just happy to score a road win,” he said.

“We outscored them by 18 points in second half and I wanted to see how our players would respond in the second half. It was a good opportunity to try some new things and make some adjustments.”

Russell County was led in scoring by LeeAnn Grider with 15 points while Rachael Miller scored 11 points. Kim Pierce also grabbed nine rebounds in the game.

Then on Friday the Lady Lakers went on the road to Allen County-Scottsville and came away with a tough loss, 43-40.

“This was a tough loss for us because we had our hands around a win and let it slip away,” Pippen said.

“We made some critical mistakes down the stretch and we really needed to take better care of the basketball.”

The Lady Lakers were led in scoring by Lindsay Ramage with 17 points and 10 rebounds for her sixth double-double of the season.

LeeAnn Grider also cracked double figures with 11 points.

Pippen noted how he could have done some things different as a coach as well as in terms of game management.

“We learn and we move on,” he said.

“Now we must focus on being at our best Tuesday night against Metcalfe County. I really want the seniors, Kim and Rachael, to go out on a high note. Hopefully we can establish our game plan and do the things we are capable of doing in district play.”
