CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

JACKSON COUNTY — The Whitley County Lady Colonels snapped out of a recent shooting funk in a big way Monday, more specifically Maria Johnson, as they knocked off Jackson County, 66-32.

Johnson set a school record with 11 three-pointers in the game, pacing Whitley County to its 18th win of the season.

After the win, Whitley County coach Larry Anderson said he was happy with the win and said it was good to be able to relax during a game for the first time in a while.

“We shot the ball well and we hadn’t been in quite some time,” Anderson said. “Maria came out of her little slump and that really carried us.

“Maria has struggled and didn’t even score a point Saturday,” he added. “She went back and watched some game film of when she was shooting the ball well and it made a difference. After she made that first shot, I think she knew she was back.”
