Lady Hawks leading district
By BARRY BURLESON
The Holly Springs Lady Hawks are earning plenty of respect this season.
Coach Sylvester Kilgore’s squad improved to 6-0 in District 2-3A Friday night with a 45-34 win at North Panola. They also went above the .500 mark overall with a 10-9 record.
“Their hard work, dedication and high character traits have put them in this position,” Kilgore said. “The coaching staff is very excited about the team’s future and expects more success.”
Starlandria Walton continued to lead the Holly High girls offensively. She scored 21. Kenyada Burns added 10 points and Lakendra Bell eight.
Burns rounded out a strong night with six rebounds, five assists and five steals. Woodson had six rebounds and Walton five.
The Lady Hawks had a four-point lead going into the fourth quarter, when they outscored the home team 15-8.
In the second game of the night, the Hawks lost their first district contest of the season, 78-57 to the Cougars.
Holly High couldn’t recover after a disastrous first quarter. They fell behind 23-6.
The Hawks were five of 14 from the free-throw line in the loss. North Panola was 19 of 33.
Holly Springs (11-8 overall and 5-1 in the district) also committed 27 turnovers.
The leading point producer for Coach Kilgore’s boys was Kylon Freeman with 19, including five threes. DeAndre Finley had nine points and eight assists. Marvin Burt added eight points. DaVonte Smith led in rebounding with seven.
North Panola had four players scoring in double digits.
Holly High teams will travel to district opponent Charleston this Friday. Next Tuesday, Feb. 4, they go to Independence, another district foe.
