Adair County Middle School girls’ basketball picked up three wins Thursday night at Hart County.
The sixth grade squad came out on top 19 to 6, the seventh graders won 40-19, and the eighth grade team cruised to a 43-26 final score.
“The girls struggled a little early,” says head coach Mike Sneed. “Hart is always a tough place to play, so I’m proud of the girls for how they battled. We’re still short-handed, but girls are adapting well to new roles.”
Ella Brown’s seven points paced the sixth grade team Thursday. Ila Loy (four), Kaylence Bennett (four), Makayla White (two), and Maddie Wethington (two) rounded out Adair’s scoring.
In the seventh grade game, Addie Bowman led the attack with 21 points. Loy scored nine, Brown added four, and Maddie Burns chipped in four as well. Ady Wooley scored two points for the seventh grade.
Reese Bardin paced the eighth graders with 14 points. Brown and Bowman each had nine, Loy scored seven, Anika Jennings added two, and Wooley also accounted for two.
Sneed says he is happy with the progress his team is making and encourages the community to come out and show its support.
“I would encourage everyone to come out and watch these girls play,” Sneed says.
