Lady Indians split versus district foes
By BARRY BURLESON
The Byhalia Lady Indians had a couple of close games last week in Region 3-3A – winning one and losing one.
Coach Renee Crenshaw’s crew beat North Panola 60-55 Tuesday of last week at home.
Three players scored in double figures – Shandricka Sessom with 19, Latara Jones 15 and Kimberly Reed 12.
The Lady Indians trailed by four after one period but outscored the visitors 18-9 in the second.
The Byhalia girls then hit the road Friday and dropped a hard-fought 55-53 decision to Charleston.
Reed scored 18, Quanisha Grayson 16 and Sessom 12.
“We played phenomenal for 32 minutes,” Crenshaw said. “We are finding out that defense pays off. We are proud of our team effort.”
They’re 4-4 in the district and 12-11 overall.
The Byhalia boys dropped a pair last week.
The Indians fell 58-41 at home to North Panola after trailing by just five, 21-16, at the half.
“They picked up the pressure and we couldn’t handle it,” coach Todd Hutchinson said.
Pat Stevenson led the Byhalia attack with 17 points.
The Indians then were on the short end of a 46-41 score Friday night at Charleston.
“We had our chances, but playing freshmen and sophomores is tough,” he said.
Stevenson scored 13.
The Indians are 3-18 overall and 1-7 in the district.
Byhalia teams will travel to Winona Friday night.
