Holiday Hoops
Road Warriors
Adena traveled to Greenfield Monday night and
recorded an impressive non-league victory. The win -
which was McClain’s first loss of the season -
improves the two-shade blue to 6-1 overall.
The Lady Warriors of Adena led at all stops Monday night (12-9, 28-23, 41-31, and eventually winning
60-49) on their way to a solid out-of-conference win. Adena benefited from great balance on the
offensive end. Kirsti Yates led four Lady Warriors in double-figures with 18 points. Autumn Smith, who
played a key role in blowing the game open in the third quarter, finished with 14 points, while backcourt
mate Brytan Givens scored 12 points. Kelsey Bielanow recorded a double-double with 10 points and 12
rebounds.

One concern on the Adena side was the absence of Jenny Grigsby in the second half. After scoring three
points in the first half, the freshman did not return to the floor due to what appeared to be a wrist injury.
Grigsby entered Monday’s game averaging 10.7 ppg.

Adena is now off for a week as they host perennial power Oak Hill next Monday night.
Lady Bearcats Bounce Back
Hollon leads balanced attack in win
After the Lady Bearcats had experienced a tough start in Scioto Valley Conference play playing the top
four teams in the first five games, PV continued to like life outside of the SVC as they improved to 3-0 in
the non-league with a 64-58 win Monday night at Vinton County.

A tight first half saw Paint Valley lead by one at 14-13 after one quarter and then trail at halftime 32-28.
Vinton County showed signs of taking control of the game in the third quarter as the Lady Vikings opened
up an eight-point lead at 41-33; however, the Lady Cats used a balanced attack and frequent trips to the
charity stripe to close the gap. Finally, PV caught VC at the four minute mark and eventually opened up a
two possession lead of its own. Late free throws sealed the deal as PV escaped McArthur with the
six-point win.

In the win, Whitney Hollon scored 22 points to lead the Bearcats. Abbie Walls scored 14 points, Dacia
Posey had 13 points, and Amber Lewis added 11 points. PV is now 3-5 and will travel to Leesburg next
Wednesday.
