Warriorettes roll past Stone


White County’s road game against Stone Memorial was moved from Jan. 28 to Jan. 27 to ensure the district game would be played with the threat of snow for Jan. 28.

The Warriorettes, coming off the road win over DeKalb County, started with a great first quarter against Stone. With a scoring combination of a junior, sophomore, and freshman at the end of the first quarter, the maroon and gray were up 17-6. Nia Powers and Celeste Reed had seven apiece, and Ava Jones chipped in three. The rebounding in the game went the Warriorettes’ way, leading to a 21-point second quarter.

Scoring was led by Powers and Lexi Golden, with 7 and 5 respectfully. The Warriorettes led by 20 at halftime 38-18.

The second half began with the Warriorettes dominating the boards, and the scoring continued for WCHS. The Warriorettes put up 25 in the third quarter. Jones had 2, Powers 7, Reed 4, Golden 2, Alaina Stiles 3, Karley Gentry 3, and, at the buzzer to end the third quarter, senior Andi Haston hit a 3 from outside the arc. To start the fourth, Golden hit a 3 from the corner.

Coach Dodgen went to his bench for the fourth quarter to give the younger players some playing time. Bella Stiles passed the ball to a waiting Brayden Taylor from the corner for a 3. Taylor was fouled on the next possession and made both free throws to cap the 73-34 win for the Warriorettes.
