Area hoops


GORDON – Sydney Wimberly scored 10 points and added six rebounds to lead the Graford Lady Rabbits to a 34-26 victory over the Gordon Lady Longhorns here Tuesday night in the season basketball opener for both teams.

Tristen Johnson and Valerie Casteneada each scored eight points to lead the Lady Longhorns.

“We are happy to get a win against a good Gordon team at their place,” Lady Rabbits coach Jarod Westmoreland said. “Gordon’s changing defenses caused us problems, but we were able to hit a couple of big baskets in the fourth quarter to get the win.

“I thought our defense was solid for the entire game, and our shooting wasn’t there but I feel it will come around.”

Also scoring for the Lady Rabbits were Morgan Hendershott with eight points, Tyler Wimberly with seven, Erika Chemello with five and Ashly Rogers with four. Hendershott grabbed four rebounds, Chemello and Rogers recorded three boards apiece and Tyler Wimberly finished with a pair of rebounds.

Also scoring for the Lady Longhorns were Rheagan Johnson with four points, and Kaylee Ginn, Loven Wheeler and Hailey Rouse, each with two.

Graford led 10-7 after the first quarter and 22-16 at the half. Gordon outscored Graford 3-0 in the third period to cut the Lady Rabbits’ lead to 22-21 as the game moved to the fourth quarter.
