We are the Champions of the Licking County League, 2020, 8th grade girls basketball tournament champions.
The Lady Hornets showed poise and determination, yes pure will power and a truth of who we are as a team. Our never quit attitude and focus and hard work resulted in The Licking Heights Central 8th Grade Basketball, back to back Champions.
Tonight’s game was a slug fest, and we won the battle! During the forth quarter time out, on the bench, Coach Glover, lead her team in a simple statement that they repeated after her, that said, “ I WILL NOT QUIT, THEREFORE, I SHALL NOT BE DEFEATED”. Pulling out all the stops from defensive isolation and counter punching and adjustments, going back and forth as a chess match. Tonight’s game was indeed a 1 and 2 seed exciting tournament game. The Lady Hornets set a standard of team ball, with great ball movement and excellent spacing. Another, team effort and total team dedication.
The Lady Hornets who scored tonight are as follows:
Miya Bradley – 2
Emily McCord – 6
Mali Thornton -14 (Ending her MS career with 714 points)
Savanna Cronin -8
