Pressure defense,
balanced scoring
combine to give ZT
opening night win
After the other seven SVC schools saw their
seasons get underway over the weekend, Zane
Trace was waiting for Tuesday night’s SVC
opener. The Lady Pioneers were at Southeastern
to tip-off their year, and their outstanding pressure
defense on one end and their balanced scoring on
the other combined to give ZT an easy 52-23 win
over the Lady Panthers.

How good was ZT’s defensive effort?
Southeastern scored its first field goal on a Neysa
Triplett midrange jumper with 4:20 remaining in the
second quarter. Meanwhile, Zane Trace’s
offense had contributions from multiple players all
night. In the first quarter, four different Lady
Pioneers scored to help ZT lead 11-1 after one.
The lead eventually grew to 26-8 at the half.

In the second half, Zane Trace was never
threatened as they cruised to the SVC win. Erin
Dailey led the red, white, and blue with 16 points.
Sierra Sigman and Kelsey Dunkle each scored 10
points and point guard Jenna Wiget added eight
points. For Southeastern, Sophie McCorkle and
Keisha Brown both scored seven points to lead
the Lady Panthers.
