|Adena beats Valley to advance
Lady Warriors to meet Oak Hill for title
The Adena Lady Warriors entered Thursday nightâ€™s
district semifinal at Waverly as one of the hottest teams in
the area. Their opponent, Lucasville Valley, had beaten
them 54-47 back on January 23rd, but this time around it
was all Adena. The two-shade blue scored the gameâ€™s
first 13 points and had control of the game throughout on
their way to a 46-30 victory.
A big key for Adena continues to be the emergence of
Autumn Smith. Smith helped Adena get off to the fast start
scoring eight of her team-high 17 points in the first quarter.
The final total on the glass also played a big part. Adena
enjoyed a 29-19 advantage led by Kirsti Yates who had 13
rebounds to go with her nine points.
The Lady Warriors will now have over a week off as they
will not play for the district championship until next Saturday
(3/6). Adena will play Oak Hill. The Lady Oaks beat Eastern
Brown in Thursdayâ€™s first game 51-40. Adena and Oak
Hill met back in December with Oak Hill winning 67-32.
Round two will take place for a district title at The Convo in
