CCHS ended District 6AAA regular season at White Co.

CROSSVILLE — The CCHS basketball teams ended the District 6AAA regular season on a sour note Friday night, as they dropped a pair of games at White County. The Lady Jets were beaten 73-59, while the Jets were downed 78-43.

White County 73, Lady Jets 58: Coach Radhika Miller's squad scored their second lowest point total (59) of the season, smallest since their 62-58 setback at Rhea County several weeks ago and fell into a second-place tie with Rhea County at 7-3, behind White County (9-1). The coaches determined the tournament pairings at their meeting Monday morning in Cookeville.

There were three ties and three lead changes in the first quarter before White County's Kelsie Roberts converted a lay-up to start 10-0 to give the hosts a 17-7 lead with 3:11 left in the first quarter. Destiny Carlton scored the Lady Jets' next four points to finish the stanza with a 4-2 run to shrink the lead to 19-11.

CCHS was three of 14 from the field with five turnovers, while White County was seven of 12 with three miscues. Both teams were four of four from the charity stripe.

Three-point baskets by Makenzie Iles, Klaire Varney and Gina Dick keyed a 12-6 run to slice the deficit to 25-23 with under three minutes left in the half. White County went six of six from the charity stripe in the final 2:29 to finish the quarter with a 12-2 run for a 37-25 lead at the break.

The tempo slowed in the third quarter, as the Warriorettes outscored CCHS 10-6 for a 47-31 advantage; however, the Lady Jets outscored White County 28-26 in the final despite the hosts hitting 18 of 21 free throws.

CCHS was nine of 19 from the field and two of two from the charity stripe. Iles and Rebekah Teeple had 13 and 11 points, respectively, for the Lady Jets in the final quarter.

Leading the Lady Jets were Iles (21 points, nine rebounds, two assists, three steals), Gina Dick (two rebounds, five assists, one steal), Alli Hyder (three rebounds, one assist), Carlton (13 points, three rebounds, one assist), Victoria Lee (steal), Teeple (15 points, three rebounds), Klaire Varney (four points, three rebounds), Kelsie Eldridge (one rebound, one assist) and Courtney Smith (one point, four rebounds). Madison McLaughlin, Skylar VanWinkle and Bailey Davis also played.

White County 78, CCHS 43: Coach Will Foster's scored their second fewest points of the season (43) since they tallied 36 in their loss at Cleveland Jan. 18 and finished fourth in the district at 4-6, behind Cookeville (9-1), SMHS (7-2) and White County (7-3) and ahead of Warren County (1-8) and Rhea County (1-9). Their district tourney opposition was determined at Monday's meeting in Cookeville.

White County opened the game with a 5-0 run and never looked back, as they finished the first quarter with a 25-8 lead, hitting 10 of 18 from the field, including two of 10 from long range.

Diego Poore had four points for the Jets, who were three of nine from the field with five turnovers.

White County continued their torrid play, hitting nine of 14 from the field, to outscore CCHS 27-10 for a 52-18 lead at the break. Logan Parsons had six points for the Jets, who were two of 11 from the field with five turnovers.

Austin Brown came off the bench to start the third quarter to score two buckets to slice the Warrior lead to 52-23, but a lay-up by Kordell Henderson helped the Warriors finish the quarter with a 16-9 run for a 68-32 lead, which kicked in the TSSAA mercy rule for the fourth quarter.

CCHS outscored White County 11-10 in the final quarter for the final margin of 78-43.

Leading the Jets were Jordan Graham (two rebounds, one assist), Poore (five points, two boards, one assist), David Elliott (one rebound, one assist), Alex Dixon (three points, three rebounds), Drew Vaden (three points, one rebound), Tanner Christopher (two points, one rebound), Brown (five points, one rebound), Cade Smith (two points, one rebound), Blake McLauglin (two rebounds), Parsons (20 points, one rebound, one steal) and Ty Tabor (three points, two rebounds). Nolan McLain and Brandon Myers also played.

  • The truth about driver distance

    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.
