LMS girls’ basketball leads Foothills conference

Published 5:06pm Monday, March 4, 2013

Landrum Middle School Lady Cardinals Basketball Team had an outstanding season with an 18-1 season record and a 15-1 Foothills Conference record.

The girls participated in the preseason Cub Classic Battle of the Districts in Woodruff winning first place over Rainbow Lake, Woodruff and Cowpens Middle Schools.

Of the 10 teams from several counties that make up the Foothills Conference, Landrum went on to tie Chesnee Middle School with a 12-1 record for first place in the regular season. The Landrum team, with one player out with an ankle injury and one benched due to an injury during the game, gave up its only loss of the season at home when Chesnee scored a long 3-pointer at the buzzer breaking a tie to take the win.

The Lady Cardinals would best Chesnee on their home court by 14 points during the second regular season match up giving them their only loss of the regular season.

Both Landrum and Chesnee advanced through the rounds of the post-season tournament to once again face each other for the championship game that was held at Middle School of Pacolet.  Landrum Lady Cardinals won that game 46-38 to win first place for the Foothills Conference Tournament.

Leading scorers for the season were seventh graders, Ellen Boatwright and Sarah Price, and eighth-grade point guard Grace Allison. Other eighth graders impacting the team both offensively and defensively were Reydience Whiteside and Skyler Wofford and seventh grader Alyssa Davis.
