Taylor County and Campbellsville’s girls’ high school basketball campaigns ended on Thursday night with 20th District Tournament losses to Marion County and Adair County, respectively.
The undefeated and top-ranked Lady Knights led 5-2 after a Haley Wright basket by the Lady Cardinals. However, Marion County scored the next 31 points and the rout was officially on.
McDonald’s All-American Makayla Epps had 13 first-quarter points and four more early in the third frame to pace coach Trent Milby’s team while Kyvin Goodin-Rogers added 14 and Alexus Calhoun 10.
Wright led Taylor County with seven points while eighth-graders Madison Burress and Madison Lauer had five each.
Three-pointers by Mercedes Cox and Kassidi Taylor highlighted Adair County’s 12-2 start vs. CHS’ Lady Eagles and the Lady Indians built a 54-18 half-time cushion.
Senior Heather Watson led Campbellsville, which started two seniors and three eighth-graders, with 10 points.
Cox and Taylor paced the Lady Indians with 17 points apiece and Alex Keltner had 12.
Marion County defeated Adair County 72-41 for the title on Saturday night and the Fifth Region Tournament tips off on Wednesday at Green County.
