“Georgia Christian went eight-for-nine in the first quarter and we were quickly down 23-9,” coach Harrell said. “The ladies battled back and we got within three points early in the fourth quarter. Hopefully we will get another shot at them in the tournament.”

The Lady Cougars returned to action Friday when they hosted Valdosta’s Highland Christian Academy at Perry Memorial Gymnasium. They will travel to Ozark Alabama Monday to take on Harvest Christian School. Their final regular season game will be Friday February 13 against the Crisp Academy Lady Wildcats in Cordele.
