The W&L Lady Eagles varsity basketball team went on the road to play and defeat the Spotsylvania Lady Knights on Friday, December 14. The Lady Eagles went up early and led (16-7) at the end of the first period. They continued to apply pressure and get easy buckets to push their advantage to nineteen (34-15) at the end of the first half. This was one of the teams more productive sixteen minutes of play. Their quick hands resulted in turnovers that gave them more opportunities to score on fast break points. They gave back part of their lead in the third quarter by only scoring ten points (44-30). The Lady Eagles managed even less in the fourth (8 points) which gave the home team thoughts of a comeback. The Lady Knights could not get all the points they needed, and the visiting Lady Eagles won (52-42). The Lady Eagles struggled as a team again from the free-throw line shooting less than thirty percent; this has plagued them to begin the season. They have to continue to work on getting the ball to the right person for the best shot in their half court offense. Whitney Wolf had 14 points, 4 steals, 1 assist, Devonna Fisher 13pts, 4reb, 5stls, Taliyah Ball 8pts, 3ast, Makaila Veney 7pts, 8reb, 5stls, 3ast, 1blk, Kennise Gray 5pts, 2reb, 3stls, 3ast, Dekira Martin 3pts, 2ast, and Alivia Greer 2pts. W&L will be on the road versus Mathews on Monday December 17 and home against King and Queen on Wednesday, December 19.
