Weather Called For A Rescheduled District Game

The eighth-ranked Georgetown Lady Eagles celebrated Senior Night –Senior Midday — Saturday with a near-school-record-breaking performance against Bastrop Cedar Creek at Eagle Gym. Coach Rhonda Farney’s Lady Eagles claimed a 71-7 victory over their District 18-5A rivals in a contest that was rescheduled from Friday night to noon Saturday by the threat of severe weather. The victory, which kept GHS atop the 18-5A race at 4-0, came within one-point of duplicating the school record for fewest points allowed in a single game that was set in a 2007 victory over Whittle, Nev., in a Christmas tournament in Seaside, Calif.

    

Cedar Creek, which fell to 1-4 in 18-5A play, did not score its first points Saturday until only 2 minutes and 16 seconds remained in the first half with GHS owning a 32-0 lead. The visiting CC Eagles only other points came on field goals with 1:25 remaining in the second quarter and 1:34 left to play in the third period. They added one free throw with 3:11 to go in the contest. Georgetown’s largest lead of the game was the final margin of 64 points in a game in which Farney played her non-starters a majority of the game.  Guard Mercedes Robledo, one of the nine seniors honored, led the Lady Eagles’ scoring with 13 points. She became the ninth GHS player to lead GHS in individual-game scoring. The victory improved the Lady Eagles’ season record to 19-7, leaving them just one win short of recording its 31st consecutive 20-win season with Farney at the helm. Of course, GHS is also hoping to annex its 30th straight trip to the UIL state playoffs.

     

Speaking of trips to the playoffs, Georgetown faces potentially its toughest week of the district season with road games against Hutto (3-1, 11-18) at 7 p.m. on Tuesday and arch-rival East View (3-1, 18-4) at 6 p.m. Friday. Both the Hippos and Patriots are coming off one-sided victories. Hutto dusted Elgin, 59-32, and East View popped contender Bastrop, 52-34, in games also delayed from Friday to Saturday. The East View game will be the opening contest of a girls-boys varsity doubleheader with the Patriots. The boys game is set for 7:30 p.m. 

 

In addition to Robledo, players honored in a post-game ceremony were Kylee Sander, Hailey Hanson, McCall Hampton, Kylie Ellsworth and Mackenzy Mouton along with managers Madison Rincon, Celeste Valdez and Rachel Heine. “It was a really good game for us,” Farney said. “I was proud of the kids — especially the seniors. They had a lot of distractions such as the postponement of the game and the cancelation of Friday’s practice. It was special with the players’ families, sub-varsity players and fans staying to honor our seniors.” Looking ahead to the week with road games against teams that will be aiming to ruin Georgetown’s hopes of repeating as 18-5A champions, Farney said, “We know we’re facing a tough week, but we’re looking forward to it and excited to be playing these games. Our kids are tough-minded and will be ready to play.  It’s a strange schedule with us playing four of six games on the road in the first half.” However, Georgetown will have four home games in the second half — all against its prime challengers for a high finish in 18-5A — Bastrop (Jan. 21), Manor (Jan. 31), Hutto (Feb. 7)and East View (Feb. 11). They will be on the road for Elgin (Jan. 24) and Cedar Creek (Feb. 4). The statistics tell the story for Cedar Creek. They made only three of 35 field goal attempts (slightly under 9 percent), had one success in four free-throw efforts, turned the ball over 32 times, were the victim of 26 steals and were outrebounded 42-20. Twenty-two of the Lady Eagles’ rebounds were on the offensive boards.

     

All 12 Georgetown players scored. In posting her career varsity high, Robledo made three of five 3-pointers, her only shot inside the arc and both her free throws. Ellsworth was the only other double-digit scorer for GHS with 11 points. Hampton added nine points  and junior point guard Graci Harris and post Lauren Woodard added eight and seven points, respectively. The Lady Eagles didn’t exactly singe nets, shooting 39 percent (23 of 59), but had one of their better free-throw shooting efforts with 19 of 25 (76 percent). Ellsworth and Mouton shared the rebounding lead with seven each and sophomore Ella Vickers successfully picked Cedar Creek’s pockets five times. Vickers also shared the assist lead as she had three along with Robledo, Harris and Ellsworth.  Sophomore Nia Williams used her 6-foot-3 height for two blocks.

  

The JV and freshman games with Cedar Creek were canceled  because of the weather-forced rescheduling. The Georgetown JV and Freshman Blue, which both stand 3-0 in district, are scheduled for 5:30 p.m. games Tuesday at Hutto. In other sub-varsity news, the Freshman White game against Belton originally set for Monday, Jan. 20 has been moved to 9:30 a.m. Saturday, Jan.18, at Georgetown.
