Lady Colonels roll past Williamsburg, 69-29

CORBIN — By John Stepp For The Times Tribune

WHITLEY COUNTY — The Whitley County Colonels had a long weekend after a loss to 50th District rival Corbin last Friday. They bounced back quite nicely on Monday night, when they defeated another district rival, the Williamsburg Lady Jackets, 69-29, on what was the Lady Colonels' senior night.

The three Whitley County seniors fared well in their last home game. Guard Brandi Smith led all scorers in the game with 18 points. Forwards Kandace Craig finished with 10 points and Maria Johnson added nine.

“It was a good win for us and for the seniors. It's good to have a game like this every now and then,” Whitley County coach Donnie Jones said. “There are still some things we need to work on, but it's always good to pick up a win.”

Jones particularly wants the Lady Colonels to improve their play in the third quarter. Whitley County has not been playing well coming out of the half, and managed to score just 14 points against the Lady Jackets in the period. Taylor Dingess led the Lady Colonels in the third, scoring seven of her 16 points in the quarter.

“We were looking tonight for intensity and focus, no matter what the score is. We had that in the first half,” Jones said. “We didn't do that in the second half and that's been our problem. We lost focus in the third quarter. I'm looking for us to be focused for a whole game. Everything else will take care of itself.”
