Lady Cougars win homecoming game

Coach Mike Harrell’s Grace Christian Academy Lady Cougars defeated Valdosta’s Highland Christian Academy Lady Eagles 51-19 Friday, January 28 in their annual homecoming game at Perry Memorial Gymnasium.

It was Brock Bailey’s night to shine. She scored a game-high 20 points and later in the night was crowned homecoming queen.

“The girls did a great job in the homecoming victory,” Coach Harrell said. “Brock Bailey was back to her old self scoring and the rest of the girls also stepped up.

“We played great defense and that is what wins games.”

Bailey is approaching 1,500 career points for Grace Christian, which would be the second highest total ever in the school’s history, Coach Harrell said.

Behind Bailey in the Lady Cats scoring column were Rachel Harrell with 10 and Emma Heard with nine.

Also contributing to the victory were Jocelyn Jacobs with four, Shelby Woodrum with two, and Perra Harrell with two.

Grace’s girls, who are now 17-7 on the season, were to take on the Emmanuel Christian Lady Warriors in Dothan, Ala., on Friday night.

The 2011 Panhandle Christian Conference tournament will be held at Covenant Christian School in Panama City, Fla., on Saturday, Feb. 12. The PCC conference tournament will be held Feb. 18-19 at Aletheia Christian Academy in Pensacola, Fla. An all-star game will be held at Emmanuel Christian in Dothan on Feb. 26.
