CCHS sweeps Monterey on senior night Saturday

CROSSVILLE — The CCHS basketball teams ended their home season Saturday night by sweeping a pair of games with Monterey on senior night, as the Lady Jets defeated the Lady Wildcats 75-41 and the Jets bested the Wildcats 50-41.

CCHS 75, Monterey 41: The Lady Jets' lone senior, Rebecca Teeple, scored 12 first-quarter points to help her team build a 22-19 advantage. CCHS, which defeated Monterey 88-33 Jan. 9 at Burks Middle School, led by as much as 12 points (20-8), but the Lady Wildcats finished the quarter with an 11-2 run.

CCHS was nine of 16 from the field and two for two from the charity stripe with one turnover, while holding Monterey to seven of 11 from the field with five turnovers.

There was a complete turn-around in the second quarter as neither team could buy a bucket. CCHS was three of 14 from the field with seven turnovers, while Monterey was four of 13 with seven turnovers; however, the Lady Jets still outscored their guests 7-4 for a 29-19 advantage at the break.

The Lady Jets opened the second half, hitting three of six free throws in a 7-0 run to take a 36-19 lead. A lay-up by Summer Norrod stopped the bleeding for Monterey; however, a trey by Iles keyed an 18-9 run to swell the lead to 57-30 by quarter's end.

Iles scored 10 points for the Lady Jets, who were eight of 19 from the field and six of 10 from the free throw line with two turnovers, while Monterey was four of nine from the floor.

The Lady Jets finished the game with an 18-11 run to post the victory. Teeple had nine points for CCHS in the final quarter, as every Lady Jet saw playing time against the Wildcats.

Contributing to the cause were Iles (19 points, four rebounds, two assists, three steals), Lindsey Norrod (one rebound), Gina Dick (four points, five rebounds, two assists, four steals), Alli Hyder (one steal), Victoria Lee (five rebounds, three assists, three steals), Madison McLaughlin (one rebound), Skylar VanWinkle (three points, one rebound, two steals), Teeple (23 points, five rebounds, three steals), Klaire Varney (five points, six rebounds, one assist), Kelsie Eldridge (one point, two rebounds, two steals), Courtney Smith (three points, four rebounds, one assist, one steal), Lexi Lee (one rebound), Bethany Dyer (one point) and Mattie Hinch (one rebound). Also playing were Bailey Davis, Emily Pugh, Hannah Brown, Bekah Capps and Kalie Turbett.

CCHS 50, Monterey 41: The win snapped the Jets' three-game losing streak and avenged an 85-58 loss to the Wildcats at Burks Middle School Jan. 9.

Baskets by Diego Poore and Logan Parsons gave the Jets an early 4-0 lead, but the Wildcats finished the quarter with a 10-3 run for a 10-7 advantage.

The Jets were three of nine from the field with three turnovers, while Monterey was four of 10 from the floor.

Two three-point baskets by Alex Dixon and one by Tanner Christopher sparked an 11-3 run to give the Jets a 18-13 lead, but a lay-up by Brett Harding with 3:15 left started a 6-5 run to slice the gap to 23-19 by quarter's end. Senior Logan Parson also added five points for the Jets, who were six of 10 from the field.

Josh Coleman opened the second half with a jumper for the Wildcats to slice the gap to 23-12, but Ty Tabor converted one of two free throws to start a 14-6 run to give the Jets a 37-27 lead by quarter's end.

Austin Brown buried two treys for the Jets, who were four of 14 from the field and three of five from the charity stripe, while holding the Wildcats to three of nine with six turnovers.

The Jets took a 41-27 lead to open the final quarter on two baskets by Drew Vaden, but a layup by Harding stopped the spurt. Coach Will Foster slowed his attack to slow down the bigger and more physical Wildcats, who went to full-court pressure in the final quarter to force CCHS turnovers.

CCHS converted nine of 17 free throws in the final quarter to seal the victory.

Leading the Jets were Diego Poore (nine points, six rebounds, two assists, one steal), Dixon (11 points, one rebound, one assist, one steal), Vaden (four points, two rebounds), Christopher (three markers, two assists), Brown (six points, two rebounds, two steals), Cade Smith (one point, two rebounds, two assists), Blake McLaughlin (three points, one assist), Parsons (12 points, six rebounds, one assist, one steal) and Tabor (one point, five rebounds). David Elliott also played.

Schedule: CCHS closes out the regular season tonight at Clarkrange and will play in the District 6AAA Tournament at Cookeville, beginning Thursday night.

    Most golfers would like to hit the ball further off the tee with the driver.  Distance may not be as important as accuracy off the tee, but it is very valuable. Longer, straighter drives make the game easier.
