For most teams the thought of four straight road games over the course of a week would be daunting. But for the Wildcat girls’ basketball team it couldn’t have been better. The girls went on a four-game win streak to run their record to 5-3.
The Lady Cats defeated Baldwin 65-57 on November 29 to get a little revenge for a one-point home loss to the Indians earlier in the year. Tiana Raysor had her best game of the season, throwing in 20 points. The offensive woes that had bothered BCHS early in the season disappeared as four Cats were in double figures.
The game was close throughout, with BCHS up 31-23 at the half. Raysor came alive with 8 points in the third period as the Cats extended their lead to 48-31. The Indians came back in the fourth period, but it was too little too late.
Raysor had 20 on the night. Chelsey Ruise and Marnae Gaskins each had a dozen points and Shanice Paige added 11 points.
• The girls traveled to Terry Parker on November 30 and snatched a big district win over the Braves with a 72-49 romp.
BCHS broke open a 16-14 game in the second quarter, going on a 20-9 run. Parker never recovered and the Cats built on their lead. They were up 48-34 at the end on the third quarter but a 23 point final stanza sealed the win.
Ruise’s 29 led all scorers. Gaskins had 13, Raysor 11 and Paige 7 points.
• BCHS had a tough game in Callahan on Friday, November 2 coming from a 26-18 halftime deficit to grab a 52-47 win over West Nassau.
It was an exciting game that saw the Lady Cats pull it out in the fourth quarter. They trailed 35-30 going into the final period, but came back with 20 points to pull out the win.
