Girls Varsity Basketball · On A Roll: Cats Win 9th Straight!

The visiting Dreher Lady Blue Devils scored the first basket of the game Thursday evening.  Lexington responded with the next 14 points to take a big early lead and cruise to an easy 61-39 win.  It was a night where leading scorer, Olivia Thompson was a bit under the weather and had trouble finding the net, totaling just 8 points.  But her teammates rallied with Brooke Foulks, Hannah Kumiyama, and Claire Tarlton all scoring in double digits.

Lexington will take a Christmas break with a 10-1 record.  They will play in the Carolina Invitational on December 27-29 at Porter Gaud.  The Cats then begin Region play at White Knoll on Tuesday January 8.

In the first 11 games of the season, the ladies are averaging 59 points per game while surrendering 42.  They are currently the state’s 6th ranked 5A team in the SCBCA weekly poll.
