The Eastern Greene Girls Basketball team opened up their regular season at home against Lighthouse Christian Academy on Tuesday, November 5th. The Lady Thunderbirds led the entire game and they played a complete game.
Brennicka Walker led all Thunderbird scorers with 17 points. Shelley Tarr scored 15 points and Kenady Hudson along with Kira Padgett each scored 11 points to round out those in double figures.
One thing that Coach Burton said that the girls had been working on a lot in practice was rebounding because they didn’t rebound in the scrimmage last week at Edgewood. “Tonight’s effort on the rebounding aspect was much better than last week’s scrimmage” Coach Burton said. Coach Burton went on to say, “I’m proud of the girl’s effort tonight and it is great to be 1-0 on the season. We have a tough opponent with South Knox this weekend and we will look to improve and get better each day of practice this week.”
The Lady Thunderbirds will travel to South Knox on Saturday, November 9th to take on the Lady Spartans. The JV contest will tip at 6:00 p.m. followed by the varsity contest. Good luck and GO THUNDERBIRDS!!!
