Leading the way for the Lady Wildcats were Claire McGarr with 15 and Sidney Folson with 14.
“I am so proud of how the ladies fought tonight,” Harrell said after the overtime loss to the Lady Wildcats. “We were down by nine at the end of the third quarter, but we battled back to send it to overtime. I could not have asked the ladies to play any harder than they did. They left everything they had on the court. I have got to do a better job preparing and coach them”
The Lady Cougars, who are 12-2 overall and 0-1 in the Georgia Independent Schools Association Region 3-AA, will return to action Tuesday when they play Highland Christian Academy in Valdosta. They will host Georgia Christian Academy Thursday at home.
