Lady Wildcats Kick off the Season
Submitted by Coach Frizzell
The Lady Wildcats started the season last week on the road versus Central Davidson. We were missing the spark and enthusiasm needed for the win. Final score Central Davidson 46 to South 38.

South needed to improve on defense and cleaning up the boards, but could never really seem to get settled in the game. The Spartans maintained a two to four possession lead for most of the night. Player stats are listed by uniform numerical order and I am just including points this week due to not having completed a few stats counts in the week.  Stats for all the games will be updated on MaxPreps. Lauren Wyatt 12 points, Allison Smith 3 points, Gracie Apple 9 points, Kamryn Oakes 2 points, Mallory Gardner 10 points, Emily Bosch 2 points.

The ladies needed to regroup for the quick turnaround game on Wednesday against West Davidson. South struggled through three quarters, but came alive in the fourth to outscore the Dragons 29 to 13 with some much needed help from our bench. Instead of fighting the game the Cats started to take what the game provided. The team started moving the ball around and look for the best available shots, while also becoming more aggressive on the defensive end as well.  It is rare to enter a locker room after a loss and feel good about how a game ended, but that was the overall atmosphere after the team play of the fourth. The fourth quarter was an early turning point and learning point of this season. Final score West Davidson 60 to South 49. Player stats are listed by uniform numerical order. Bayli Medlin 7 points, Lauren Wyatt 8 points, Gracie Apple 2 points, Kamryn Oakes 1 point, Olivia Parker solid ball movement and play 4 points, Mallory Gardner 27 points.

By the time Friday rolled around the Wildcats were looking for a win and they found one.  Final score South 57 to Mount Pleasants 32. The Lady Wildcats on Friday looked like a different team compared to the crew than had shown up earlier in the week. This team worked the ball, the boards, open passing lanes, and improved their team defense.  As a team we are still working to connect and get two points from the fast breaks off defensive work.  Several of our passes were to far ahead or thrown behind, but there is a different feel about this team in a very short amount of time. They are starting to want it and when their play and passion come together over the next few weeks, watch out! Player stats are listed by uniform numerical order.  Bayli Medlin 7 points, Allison Smith 6 points, Lauren Wyatt 6 points, Gracie Apple 15 points, Savannah Gallimore big rebounds, Kamryn Oakes 2 points, Mallory Gardner 22 points.
Thank you as always for all who attended the games this week. We are on the road at West Davidson on Wednesday the 5th and at North Stanley on Friday.
