Girls’ basketball focuses on defense

Terriana Neely makes a run toward the basket during the Lions’ Jan. 12 game against the Powhatan Indians.

The Louisa County High School girls’ basketball team continued their Jefferson district play last week with games against Western Albemarle and Powhatan high schools.

On Jan. 12, the Lions traveled to Powhatan High School to face the Indians. Defense played a big factor in the game as the Lions fell 31-26.

Louisa trailed 8-6 after the first quarter, and Powhatan outscored them 10-7 in the second for a halftime score of 18-13.  Both teams added 13 points throughout the second half to keep the margin the same.

“It was one of the best defensive games we have played this season,” Lions’ head coach Nick Schreck said. “We just couldn’t get the ball to go in.  If we can continue with that defensive effort, things will get easier for us on the offensive end as well.”

Senior Terriana Neely tallied a double-double for the Lions, scoring 10 points and pulling down 11 rebounds. Sophomore Alexis Miller and freshman Alexis Chapman each added six points for Louisa, and freshman Lydia Wilson scored four.
