The Adair County Middle School Lady Indians ended last week in style, winning three games over Campbellsville in a sixth, seventh, and eighth-grade tripleheader.
The homestanding Lady Indians got things started by gutting out a 21 to 13 defensive slugfest in the sixth grade contest.
Ella Brown scored 11 and Ila Loy added six to account for nearly all of Adair’s offensive output. No other player made a field goal; Makayla White, Kaylence Bennett, and Maddie Wethington each sank a free throw.
The seventh grade contest was higher scoring but the end result was another Adair win, 34-18.
Addie Bowman led the way with 11 points, while Brown stayed hot in her second game of the night, pitching in eight. Loy scored seven, Callee White had four, Maddie Burns scored three, and Adysen Wooley rounded out the scoresheet with a free throw.
The final contest of the night was the most lopsided. Adair cruised to a 34-16 win in eighth grade action.
Eighth grader Reese Bardin paced a slew of younger teammates with a game-high 15 points. Loy—playing in her third game of the evening—had her best offensive performance against the oldest competition, scoring nine. Bowman added five; White, two; Anika Jennings, two; and Burns one.
The Mike Sneed-coached teams’ records now stand at 5-3 (sixth), 5-3 (seventh), and 3-5 (eighth).
The Tribe was coming off a 2-1 night Tuesday in Cumberland where the sixth and seventh grade teams won—30-12 and 39-19, respectively, but the eighth graders came up just short, 34-33. Brown and Loy each notched double figures in the sixth grade game, while Bowman was the leading scorer in both seventh and eighth grade action.
