The Williamsburg Lady Jackets continued to struggle Monday, dropping a 69-52 loss to Pulaski County on the road. The loss sends Andrea Ellis’ team to 0-3 on the season.
The struggles started early for Williamsburg as they were outscored 26-9 in the first quarter and 21-10 in the second period, giving the Lady Maroons a 47-19 lead at the break.
“The first half of the game killed us,” Ellis said. “We didn’t handle the press well at all and we had too many turnovers (21).
“We struggled stopping and helping out on the drive also,” she added. “Pulaski County is a good team and they played a very good game tonight.”
After struggling through the first half, Williamsburg managed to mount some offense in the second half, tallying 18 points in the period, but still trailed 62-37 as the fourth quarter got underway.
The Lady Jackets continued to play well in the final stages of the game, outscoring Pulaski County 15-7 in the fourth quarter before losing 69-52.
“We played much better in the second half with only five turnovers,” Ellis said. “We started playing better as a team and listening.
“Tarrah Davis and Kacie Brown played very well for us, but it takes the entire team contributing to win games,” she added.

Season taking shape
After seeing some impressive baseball, and softball games this past week, this I know — they’re only a handful of teams that will make a run for both the 13th Region baseball and softball titles.
Ready for Action
Seventy-five years is a long time, but in baseball years it seems like days.
Fear 'Les' Diamond Rankings
The Lady Cardinals have recovered nicely after a loss to North Laurel by defeating Johnson Central, South Oldham and Whitley County.

Corbin without a coach as spring practice begins
As the weather begins to warm up (with the exception of today), some high school football teams have already held their spring practice sessions, while some are on tap to get started this week.
Hart says his Lady Redhounds can right the ship
Chris Hart’s Corbin Lady Redhounds were pre-season favorites entering the 2014 campaign, but stumbled out of the blocks, going 5-11 during their first 16 games.
Eight is Enough
It may have taken the Corbin Redhounds four innings to get in to a rhythm against Williamsburg’s Ryan Bowlin, but once they did they made the best of it.
South Laurel pitcher Hagan Burns brought her ‘A’ game to the mound during the Lady Cardinals’ 15-0 win over Whitley County Monday.
