conference win alludes Lady Pioneers

The girls of David Crockett are running out of time to notch their first conference win of the season.
Despite coming up short thus far in the Big 8, Crockett (4-19, 0-11) has shown marked improvement from last year.
Much of that improvement has been due to the addition of freshman sensation Madison Grindstaff, who exhibited her talent in the 68-41 loss to Tennessee High at home on Jan. 24.
The Lady Pioneers kept the contest close against the conference’s second best team through the first eight minutes, playing to a 15-13 quarter.
The second and third quarters would prove the difference maker for Crockett however, as Tennessee High outscored the Lady Pioneers 44-15.
Crockett took the fourth quarter 13-9, but the talented Lady Vikings had given themselves enough of a cushion to take the win.
Grindstaff led Crockett with 14 points with a 6-of-9 effort from the field. Heather Scalf chipped in for 11 points, with six of those coming way of the three-pointer.
The Crockett offense which had been steady against Tennessee High, was missing in action at Sullivan South on Jan. 27.
The Lady Rebels jumped out to a 20-8 first quarter lead and never looked back. The Lady Pioneers scored just four points in the second quarter to fall behind 33-12 at the half.
A three-point Crockett scoring effort in the third helped South push the advantage to 51-15 before playing reserves much of the fourth for a comfortable 61-21 win.
Crockett will continue its search for a conference win on the road against Sullivan Central on Jan. 31 and against the undefeated Lady Hilltoppers of Science Hill (25-0) on Feb. 3.
