CORBIN — Williamsburg senior Mikkah Siler needed 17 points to reach the 1,000-point club entering Saturday’s contest with Lynn Camp.
Siler got that, and then some, by pouring in a game-high 36 points to help lead the Lady Yellow Jackets to a convincing 82-53 win over the Lady Wildcats.
“Today was a great day,” Williamsburg coach Randy Crider said. “We came out and really got after Lynn Camp on both ends of the floor. It all started with the JV team picking up a very convincing win and that really just bled over to the varsity game. We really put pressure on them from the start and you could tell it affected them. “Offensively, we played together and passed the ball really well,” he added. “Along with getting two nice wins, I would like to give Mikkah Siler a shout-out for scoring her 1,000th point today. She is a great kid and I am extremely proud of her and what she has accomplished.“
Williamsburg improved to 7-9 with the win while Lynn Camp fell to 8-10.
