George Rogers Clark vs. Mason County (Girls)
10th Region Tournament Championship
George Rogers Clark High School
March 8, 2015
Mason County withstood a late George Rogers Clark rally to earn a 51-47 victory over the defending regional championship. Mason County coach Piper Lindsey could only tell her young team (two 8th graders, eight sophs, and five freshmen) the joys of making it to the state tournament as she made the trip in 2004 but now they will be able to build their own memories.
This game was a roller coaster of emotions as Mason County raced out to a 14-8 lead after the first quarter of action. Mason County hit some key three point baskets to hold a 24-19 lead at halftime. George Rogers Clark fought back and actually led 32-31 after three quarters. Mason County rallied to take the lead and led by an excellent effort by 5-8 So. Whitney O’Mara held on for the victory. Free throw shooting proved to be an Achilles’ heel for GRC today as they only connected on seven of 15 from the charity stripe.
5-8 So. Whitney O’Mara led Mason County with 22 points. 5-9 So. Maddie Boone added 10 points. 5-3 So. Briana Littleton and 5-8 So. Briana McNutt chipped in with nine and six points respectively. McNutt pulled down seven rebounds.
5-8 Sr. Paige Taylor and 5-10 Jr. Sydney Anderson led GRC with 12 points each. 6-3 So. Elizabeth Hardiman added 11 points and 6-1 Sr. Sandra Skinner chipped in with nine points. Skinner pulled down a game-high 15 rebounds.
