LYNN CAMP — The Lynn Camp Lady Wildcats shrugged off a frigid 0-for-11 start from the floor during the first quarter to beat the Kilsyth Australian Travel Team, 57-44.
The Lady Wildcats (3-1) received a 19-point scoring effort from Kayla Smith while Breanna Hollin knocked down two important three-pointers during the second quarter to help her team jump out on the Cobras.
“We started off slow again and we’ve done that in all four games and that’s something that we are going to correct or it’s gonna come back and get us,” Lynn Camp assistant coach Mike Hensley said. “I think overall this was a good experience for us.
“Like I said the other night, we’ve got to continue to get better and better,” he added. “There were a lot of things we did good out there tonight.”
Kilsyth led 12-9 at the end of the first quarter before Hollin’s two three-pointers allowed Lynn Camp to claim a 30-22 advantage at halftime.
The Lady Wildcats put the game out of reach during the game’s final 16 minutes behind solid play by Smith and solid defense.
“Tonight we played a few more girls than normal,” Hensley said. “It allows us to play a different style.”
Lynn Camp 57, Kilsyth 44
Kilsyth 12 10 8 14 44
Lynn Camp 9 21 10 17 57
Kilsyth (44) — Duncan 12, Brazier 4, Grant 2, A. Lamartilla 6, B. Lamartilla 4, Toronto 11, Bingley 3, Brazier 2.
Lynn Camp (57) — Smith 19, May 10, Miller 3, Wilson 3, Burke 9, Bryant 2, Hollin 8, Turner 3.

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.
The North Laurel Lady Jaguars managed to pick up two wins the past couple of days with victories over both Harlan and Rockcastle County while the Jaguar tennis team also picked up a victory over the Green Dragons.
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.
