Lady Broncos to play Sunray Friday
By Sandy Anderberg
The District Champion Lady Broncos will face Sunray in the first round of playoffs at 6:00 p.m. on Friday at Tascosa High School in Amarillo.
Things did not look good for the ladies in the first half of play against Borden County as they struggled offensively and trailed by 10 points at the break. But they were able to regroup and execute down the stretch to get the win. After tying the game at 32 after three, the ladies took control and earned the 44-39 win.
“We had a slow start,” coach Molly Weatherred said. “At one point we were down by about 20 points. But the girls held their composure and came back to win. It was good to see them able to regain the momentum and learned to fight back.”
Ryann Starnes and McKayla Cartwright got in foul trouble early, but managed to get back in a rhythm offensively. They led the ladies to the win with 13 and 11 points from their inside position.
Scoring: Starnes 13, Cartwright 11, Trevela Dronzek 6, Audrey Shelton 5, Jentry Shadle 4, Camra Smith 3, and Marqueda Gaines 2.
