Kiwanis Classic Girls: Kerens pulls away from Frost 57-29

Corsicana — For the Kerens LadyCats, it was more of the same in Friday's Championship Game of the Kiwanis Classic.

Another title. Another talented team put away.

Kerens led by only four at halftime, but roared out of the locker room to pull away from Frost for a 57-29 victory over the Lady Polar Bears in a battle of Top 10 teams at the Wolens Special Events Center.

The LadyCats (8-5) responded with Frost back at full strength in the second half -- Lady Polar Bears' freshman standout Jae Moore picked up four quick fouls in the first 10 minutes of the game.

Frost survived the second quarter without the inside presence of Moore, trailing only 21-17 at halftime. But Breanna Wells and Marqueshia dominated the paint, combining for 10 points as the LadyCats led 35-24 headed into the final quarter.

The Lady Polar Bears pulled within 37-29 on Kadee Bowling's 3-pointer early in the fourth quarter, but Wells made two more big shots to add to her total of 19 points for the night. And shooting guard Taylor Ames salted away the game with 11 of her 20 points in the last few minutes.

Ames scored eight points in the first quarter as Kerens broke out to a 14-7 lead. But Frost stayed with the LadyCats, even when Moore picked up her fourth foul with the score at 14-9 early in the second quarter.

Bowling, who had 16 points, made one of three 3-pointers for the game. Madison Revill and Dakota Lassetter also scored as Frost stayed within striking distance.

  • GC Baseball/Softball: Mildred names Zamzow new baseball coach; AD Chambliess to coach softball again

         The Mildred Eagles didn’t have to go far to find a new baseball coach to replace Aaron Tidwell, who left the diamond to take the job as the principal of Mildred High School.
        On Saturday, Mildred named softball coach Brett Zamzow its new baseball coach as Zamzow, who was Tidwell's assistant for five years,  moves back to baseball after spending a year coaching softball.
