Lady Cats defeat Lady Bears 77-33

Coach Latreisha Moon’s Bainbridge High School Lady Cats basketball team defeated the Baker County High School Lady Bears 77-33 Saturday in Newton to improve their season record to 16-5.

Tuesday night, they played their last home game and last region game against the Lee County High School Lady Trojans.

The Lady Cats’ regular season will conclude Saturday with a 6 p.m. game against the Cairo High School Syrupmaids in Cairo.

The Lady Cats were led Saturday in Newton by April Thomas, who scored a game-high 27 points. De De Sparrow was also in double figures with 12.

Center Bria Harris, a consistent double figure scorer for the Lady Cats all season, got into early foul trouble and finished with five.

“With Bria Harrs in early foul trouble, it gave some other players a chance to play, and they really stepped up and played well,” Coach Moon said. “It was a true team victory.”

Also contributing to the Lady Cats big victory Saturday night were Diamond Bouie with eight, Briana Wade with six, Candice Perkins with four and De De Cooper, Ri’Chana Jackson, Jasmine Kelly and Aleah Clark each with two.
