Central tops No. 14 Lady Warriors

CENTRAL HIGH — If there was ever such a thing as a signature win, the Central High Lady Bronchos got it on Friday night, along with a measure of revenge.

Against No. 14 Chattanooga the Lady Bronchos were held to one of their lowest point totals of the season, but they still managed to hold off a late rally to claim a 35-33 victory, in the final home game at the old Broncho Gymnasium on the campus of Central High.

“I thought Caitlyn (White), Faith (Harris), and Lora-Lynn (Loomis) did well on free throws all in the fourth quarter. We did well on defense and rebounded the ball. Overall we played well and beat a tough ranked team.”

In a fourth quarter which saw the Lady Bronchos biggest lead at five points, it was points from the free throw line which made all the difference in the contest.

As the Lady Warriors tried to sneak back into the game at the 3:33 mark, the Lady Bronchos took a 26-25 lead and extended it to a 30-25 lead less than a minute later.

Caitlyn White finished with eight total points, the bulk of which came in the fourth at the free throw line late on.

“Honestly, I wasn’t thinking about making the free throws,” White said. “I was mainly mad that they (Chattanooga) kept fouling me. It felt really good beating them, especially since a lot of people had underestimated us as a team.”

At the halftime break, the Lady Bronchos held a 15-14 lead, which grew to a 19-14 lead in the third quarter, before the Lady Warriors managed to make it a 24-21 going into the fourth.

“When you have four seniors that’s what you expect from them is experience,” Weldon said. “No one got rattled and they kept their composure. We rotated the ball and someone got fouled. We’ve been shooting around 80 percent at the free throw line lately and we did that again tonight.”

Faith Harris led the Lady Bronchos (15-6) with 11 points, followed by Lora-Lynn Loomis with 10 points. Aleia Daniels scored four points while Charity Harris put in two points.

Chattanooga (16-8) was led by Holly Garza with 13 points with Missy Stallcup putting in eight points. Alyssa Waugua and Jill Ogletree both scored four points.

  • Duran Duran has one obstacle left: State

    Midway through her sophomore year, Comanche’s Alexis Duran had her athletic life taken away from her, but this spring she got it back in spectacular fashion.
    An ACL tear in basketball kept the three-sport star out for a full year before she got to compete again in track as a junior. Duran didn’t just show up and run, she pushed for medals and came just shy of making the state tournament, finishing one spot away by a tenth of a second.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
