|Lady Warriors capture huge
early season victory over ZT
After the athleticism of Zane Trace
pushed the Lady Pioneers out to a 13-
7 lead after one quarter of play in
Thursday nightâ€™s SVC battle,
Adena locked down defensively
allowing just 22 points the rest of the
way to record a 42-35 win. Adenaâ
€™s defensive effort did a great job of
containing ZT in the scrimmage area,
and ZTâ€™s inability to score made
it difficult for the Pioneers to continue
the pressure that helped them build
the early lead. That early pressure
hurried the Adena guards at times
forcing a frantic pace, but as the game
grew longer, ZT was unable to defend
the dribble in the quarter court. Adena
guards Brytan Givens and Autumn
Smith did a great job off the high ball
screen of keeping their dribble alive
and making plays for themselves and
Freshman Jenny Grigsby led all
scorers with 16 points. Givens scored
nine points and Smith added eight.
The Lady Warriors also had a great
defensive effort from Olivia Arledge.
The sophomore grabbed nine
rebounds, blocked five shots, and
changed several others.
For ZT in the loss, Sierra Sigman was
finally able to get it going late as she
led ZT with 14 points. Sigman was
the only ZT player in double figures
as Erin Dailey and McKenzee Tatman
both scored six points.
