LCHS Girl’s basketball;
Lady Dawgs go 1-1 in first week of action;
LOUISA, KY – The Lady Dawgs opened up the season last Monday with a home opening win (39-24) over the Prestonsburg Blackcats. Coach Feltner was pleased with the win but knows this is the first game and there’s going to be improvements made on the court.
LC had 4 players a basket away from hitting the double digit mark…junior Laken Fitch led the Bulldogs in scoring with 9 points, while junior teammates Savannah Cyrus and Shelby Hay each had 8 points as did freshman Kara Williamson.
The Lady Dawgs as a team did well on both the offensive and defensive sides of the ball. LC turned the ball over only 4 times the entire game and picked the pockets of the Blackcats 6 times, had a total of 28 boards (13 Def & 9 Off) and shot 50% from the foul line going 13 of 26. Junior Caroline Clevenger lead the Dawgs on the boards with 7 rebounds.
LC vs. South Point
This past Saturday LC traveled to South Point, OH to take on the Pointers and left with a 37-51 loss as two players fouled out. LC was lead by junior Laken Fitch on the court with 12 points to go along with her 3 boards and 1 steal. The Dawgs had trouble all night trying to find the bottom of the net only hitting 11/46 from the floor and turning the ball over 17 times.
As LC begins District play this week with Paintsville tonight and Sheldon Clark on Friday, both games home, the Bulldogs have to play as a team from both ends of the court to capture these tough games.
The Pointers shot 82% from the floor (18/22) as they connected on 13/13 from 2 point FG and 5/9 from 3 point FG which shows the need for better defense by LC.
