The White Pine County High School Ladycats came away from Lincoln County with a win against the Lynx in what Coach Krystal Smith described as a “barn burner” of a game.
“They are probably the best team out of the south. They play us tough everytime we play them,” Smith said.
The Ladycats started the game slow, only scoring four points in the first period. Things changed after that and the Ladycats outscored the Lynx by fourteen points going into the final period leading 34-28. The most scoring in the game came in the final period, with the Lynx rallying 23 points to bring the game within two, but the Ladycats held on to win it.
Debra Kingston led the team 18 points. Amanda Allred also had a strong performance with 15 points.
The Ladycats will be home for their next two games, facing off against North Tahoe on Friday and Incline on Saturday. Incline currently has the best record in the conference, and Coach Smith knows the Ladycats will need to bring their best game so far this season to come away with the win.
“Incline right now is probably the best team in Division III North. We have been practicing really hard to prepare for them,” Smith said.
Smith says the team has started the season “balanced” and the guard play has been strong, but would like to improve on their scoring moving forward.
