Taylor County High School’s much-improved Lady Cardinals still cannot get over the huge hump vs. 20th District rivals Adair County and Marion County.
The Lady Indians proved another huge obstacle for coach Whitney Hooper’s squad (10-8) as the Lady Cardinals were crushed 48-22 by the visitors on Tuesday night.
Haley Wright tallied Taylor County’s first 12 points, but Adair County had scored 36 in the same stretch.
It was not until eighth-grader Sarah Botkin tallied with 7:18 left in the tilt that another Lady Cardinal, other than Wright, could scratch the scoring column.
The trio of Beth Owens (15), Harlee Smock (11) and Alex Keltner (10) combined for 36 points and Adair County improved to 10-7 and 3-1 in the district race. Coach James Turner’s team trails Marion County (3-0) for the top seed.
Taylor County hosts Metcalfe County in a girl/boy twinbill on Friday starting at 6:30.
