Lady Blues complete district schedule with 41-point win
The Lady Blues closed the 2021 district schedule in blowout fashion Friday night at Graham High School. By outscoring Mineral Wells by double digits in three quarters, the Lady Blues celebrated a 72-31 senior night victory over the visiting Lady Rams.
There was little resistance shown from the Lady Rams from the start. With a 20-1 run from the Lady Blues out of the tip, the Lady Blues nearly topped their visitors’ four-quarter scoring output in the first eight minutes. Hannah Isom, Maddie Mandela, Leah Holland and Kate Gober all scored points in the opening run.
“I am proud of how the girls jumped ahead early,” Lady Blues coach Ky Graham said. “I’m proud of how they came out focused with senior night and we already wrapped up the district title. It would have been easy to come out really flat. They didn’t do that at all. They wanted to end it all on a really, really good note.”
