Lady Wildcats pick up two hoops victories
The KCHS Lady Wildcats went 2-0 this past week with wins over Noxubee County and Louisville, as the Wildcats lost to both teams.
In the first game of the week against Noxubee County, the Lady Wildcats won by a score of 58-37. Zariyah Moss once again led scoring with 19 points as Robynn Jennings scored 15. Rodezah Smith also added 10 to the Wildcats total.
The Wildcats lost 58-50 to Noxubee. Lebrun Johnson scored 14 points while Ty Steele scored 12. Alfred Love also added nine to the Wildcats total.
Later in the week, the Lady Wildcats defeated Louisville 53-45. Neera Bell scored 17 while Moss scored 15. Smith added 10, with Jennings adding eight.
The Wildcats lost 60-46, however Coach Michael Stringer says the game was much more competitive than the final score reflects.
“They wore us out,” Stringer said. “Playing with eight players you are at a disadvantage.” Stringer says the return of football players this week will help with the struggle in depth the Wildcats have faced early this season.
Against Louisville, Steele scored 21 points and was aided by Johnson’s 11. “We’re right where we need to be,” says Stinger as he looks forward to the rest of the season now that he has his entire team on board. After Thanksgiving break, the Wildcats will face Northeast Lauderdale away on November 30, and will get their rematch against Louisville on December 2.
