Lady Pioneers inch closer to conference win

In three seasons, the David Crockett High School Lady Pioneers have been unable to win a game against any Big 8 Conference foe.
Despite fielding the most competitive team the Lady Pioneers have had during that time span, the wait will have to continue, as Crockett dropped two conference contests last week.
The team’s latest losses came against Sullivan South and Tennessee High.
The Crockett boys also went winless in their only game last week against Sullivan South.
Improved Lady
Pioneers shouldn’t be taken lightly
Teams assuming Crockett is just an easy win on their schedule might want to think twice about that assumption.
The Lady Pioneers are just 1-6 and 0-3 in the conference, but are continuing to improve every contest.
Crockett opened the week on Dec. 11 at Sullivan South against the Lady Rebels.
Despite falling behind 20-9 by the end of the first quarter, Crockett fought back in the second, and headed to halftime trailing by just five, 34-29.
After a Heather Scalf three-pointer in the early minutes of the third quarter, Crockett took their first lead of the contest, 39-38.
But that lead wouldn’t last long as South responded with six straight points to reclaim the advantage 44-39.
The small run eventually became a big one for the Lady Rebels, who seized control of the game with a 30-4 run.
The Lady Pioneers fought back again late in the fourth quarter, but the deficit was too much for Crockett to overcome, as they fell 68-51.
Crockett was led in scoring by Scalf who finished with 15 points and Kaylie Foster who added 12.
CROCKETT BOYS
ALSO FALL TO SOUTH
South completed their sweep of the Pioneers later that night with the Rebels winning big over the boys of Crockett, 64-40.
The Pioneers (4-8, 1-3) once again started slow and fell behind 18-6 after the opening quarter.
Crockett’s offense emerged in the second quarter, but there was little they could do to stop South who controlled a 34-20 halftime lead.
The Rebels ran their lead to 22 points after the third and coasted to victory in the fourth.
Crockett’s 40 total team points was one of their lowest offensive outings of the season. No Crockett players reached double-digits.
LADY PIONEERS FALL TO TENNESSEE HIGH
The Lady Pioneers completed their action for the week on Dec. 14 at home against Tennessee High.
The Lady Vikings opened the contest by scoring 27 points in the first quarter, while holding Crockett to just nine points.
By halftime, the lead had swelled to 41-15.
The Lady Pioneers came out strong in the second half outscoring Tennessee High 34-23 over the final two quarters.
But the first half deficit proved too much to overcome as Crockett fell 69-49.
Foster once again put together a strong performance for the Lady Pioneers, leading the team with 18 points.
