Hendrickson & Lehman

 

 

Georgetown coach Rhonda Farney has a proven plan to prepare her Lady Eagles for the second and third portions of the season — the district race and the the UIL state playoffs. She wants to play a tough non-district schedule and then see her team begin to jell into a tribe of hardened warriors during the Jack Frost Invitational Tournament.

 

The host Lady Eagles will take a 6-5 record into the 40th annual  Jack Frost, which begins Thursday and runs through Saturday on the Georgetown campus and Southwestern University Robertson Center.  GHS is in Pool A with Austin Akins, Killeen and San Antonio Incarnate Word — three teams that currently own sub-.500 records. This is  an ideal situation for Farney’s squad as she continues to determine and polish her rotations for the climactic portions of the campaign.

 

If Georgetown can master Akins at noon Thursday and Killeen at 6 p.m. Thursday and IWA at 7:30 p.m. Friday, they will move into a much tougher realm of competition in Saturday’s semifinals against a  representative from Pool B that includes Texas Association of Basketball Coaches state-ranked teams in Corpus Christi Flour Bluff (16th in 5A) and Houston St. Agnes (No. 2 in 6A private schools) along with defending tournament champion Liberty Hill.  Georgetown is ranked 17th in the Texas Girls Coaches Association 5A listing. The girls Gold Bracket finals are set for 5 p.m. on Saturday. The Lady Eagles are coming into the Jack Frost off a week in which they made a respectable showing in a 55-41 loss to the state’s No. 1-ranked 6A team Pflugerville Hendrickson (12-0) on  Saturday at Eagle Gym and a 62-35 domination of 6A Kyle Lehman on the Lobos’ court on Monday night.

 

“We needed that one,” Farney said after the win over 3-7 Lehman. “I’m pleased with how we played. (5-foot-9 junior forward) McCall Hampton continued her consistency in both scoring and rebounding. Jaelyn (5-11 forward-post Knight) had one of her better games. We improved on the offensive boards.” Farney also said that she was pleased with junior Kylee Sander’s varsity debut at point guard along with the more aggressive play of her guards (juniors Kylie Ellsworth and Hailey Smith and sophomore Graci Harris) the second-half showings of senior post Jade Smith and senior guard Ali Isbell in the second half.” Georgetown never trailed in the win over Lehman, leading 15-4 after one, 26-14 at the half and 43-22 a the three-quarter mark. The Lady Eagles’ largest lead was 62-33 in the closing seconds against a much-shorter opponent.

 

GHS enjoyed one of its best shooting nights of the season, making 54 percent (24 of 44). Hampton led the Lady Eagles in both scoring — 23 points — and rebounding — seven boards. Knight added in 16 points and H. Smith had seven.  Hampton’s 23 points was a season high for the Lady Eagles, besting her 22 points against Waco Midway.Kayla Presley led Lehman with 12 points as the Lobos only shot 30 percent from the floor. If there was a divot in the Georgetown game, it was a continued higher-than-desired turnover number of 17.

In Friday’s loss to the high-flying Hawks, the Lady Eagles trailed only 14-9 after first quarter and 23-13 at the half, but Hendrickson outscored GHS, 18-7, during the initial seven minutes of the third quarter, taking a 41-20 advantage. Georgetown never cut the deficit to fewer than the final 14-point margin. “I thought we played well in the first half,” Farney said. “I think we’ve made progress since our season opener with Cedar Ridge. We still have work to do.”

 

Two areas of concern were the Lady Eagles being outrebounded 15-4 on the offensive boards along with 32 turnovers — half the total of the quicker and more athletic Hawks. Georgetown shot just 33 percent (14 of 42) from the floor.  Hampton led both the scoring and rebounding column with 15 points and 11 boards. Knight was the Lady Eagles’ No. 2 scorer with eight points. Hendrickson’s Mikayla Woods led all scorers with 25 points. After playing in the Jack Frost, Georgetown will open District 18-5A competition at home against Bastrop at 7 p.m.  Tuesday.

 

In sub-varsity action, GHS won all five games against Hendrickson and Lehman. The Freshman Blue  improved its record to 9-1 with a 59-20 win over Hendrickson and a 71-14 dicing of Lehman. Kristin Lott scored 16 points in each game and Dylann Jones had 18 against the first-year Lobos. The JV topped Hendrickson, 64-36, and Lehman, 58-21, to improve to 8-2 on the year. Junior Mercedes Robledo score 20 points against the Hawks and Lauren Woodard had 19 points and Maddie LaCour scored 10 in the win over the Lobos.  The Freshman White claimed a 49-8 win over the Lehman B to improve its record to 2-3. Morgan Larson and Emyris Mims led GHS with 22 and 17 points, respectively.
