Daily Staff Reports – firstname.lastname@example.org
FRONT ROYAL — Warren County’s girls basketball team welcomed back leading scorer Alesha Adams after a two-game absence, and the senior notched a game-high 12 points in the Wildcats’ 45-18 win over Bull Run District rival Manassas Park.
Adams had been sidelined the past two games after spraining her ankle in practice about a week ago, Wildcats coach John Kelly said.
“It hurt us in the sense to where the ball usually flows through her,” Kelly said. “Not only does she score some points, but the ball does flow through her, and without her leadership on the court it really showed.”
Warren County (11-7, 10-4 Bull Run) had little trouble against the Cougars, building a 27-8 lead by halftime while substituting freely throughout the game.
“Our fundamentals the last two games have really been slacking, and overall tonight we did a much better job with the fundamentals,” Warren County coach John Kelly said. “They made an effort to really improve their passing and ballhandling, and it really showed.”
Samantha Schroyer, Jordyn Beckner and Lauren Woodrell added six points each for the Wildcats.
Jessica Tibbs had six points to lead Manassas Park (2-20, 2-14 Bull Run).
Central 64, Rappahannock County 22
