Graford Lady Rabbits win District 11-A opener over Bryson, 55-17


GRAFORD – Graford opened with a 19-1 run and never looked back as the Lady Rabbits ran past the Bryson Cowgirls, 55-17, here Friday night in the District 11 (Division II) opener for both teams.

The win evens the Lady Rabbits’ overall record to 10-10.

“I was pleased with the win on Friday,” Lady Rabbits head coach Jarod Westmoreland said. “We still have a few defensive things we need to work on, and offensively, we need to shoot a little better.

“This week is big because we play at Paint Creek (today) and have Newcastle at home on Friday.”

Three Lady Rabbits – Tyler Wimberly, Ashly Rogers and Sydney Wimberly – almost each recorded double doubles.

Tyler Wimberly scored 13 points with six steals; Rogers added 13 points while pulling down five rebounds; and Sydney Wimberly scored 12 points and registered seven steals.

Also scoring for the Lady Rabbits were Amanda Francis with five points, Katie Rochelle and Morgan Hendershott, each with four, and Ashley Hay and Erika Chemello, each with two.

Hay also grabbed four rebounds.

After taking an 18-point lead after the opening period, Graford outscored Bryson 16-10 to take a 35-11 lead at the half.

In the third period, Graford went on an 11-4 run to take a 46-15 lead into the fourth quarter.

Price’s double double lifts Strawn

GORDON – Jayde Price scored 30 points and pulled down 15 rebounds to lead the No. 7 Strawn Lady Hounds to a 64-27 win over the Gordon Lady Longhorns here Friday night in a District 17 (Division II) contest.

The win lifts Strawn to 19-5 overall.

Also scoring for the Lady Hounds were Jacqueline Berumen with 17 points, Cori Pollock with nine, and Shelly Abbott and Tearany Atkins, each with four.

Abbott also led Strawn with nine assists.

Strawn led 13-9 after the first quarter and built a 31-17 lead at the break.

The Lady Hounds went on a 21-2 run in the third period to take a 52-19 lead into the fourth quarter.
