Leading the  way for the Lady Cats Thursday against Pelham were Russ with nine points, Register with seven points, Harris with six points and Makayka Hamilton with five points.

Coach Pierce said she thought her team played hard and well  in both games this week.

“We ran our offense well and played strong  defense  against Pelham and Washington,” she said. “The girls are  very young and they are beginning to show improvement in practice and games.”

The eighth grade lady Cats will see their first road action Tuesday when they travel to Thomas County to take on the Thomas County Middle School eighth grade Yellow  Jackets.

“Thomas County Central always plays well and we are looking forward to taking them on,”  coach Pierce said. “We will be up for the challenge.”
