Girls Varsity Basketball · Girls Basketball Advances to Third Place Game of Tipton Tournament


The Girls Basketball team played in their second game of the Lady Devils Holiday Tournament hosted by Tipton HS. After a tough loss in the first game of the tournament earlier in the day, the Lady Eagles looked to bounce back in the game against Tri Central.

Adams did not let the loss earlier in the day affect the outcome of this game however. Adams trailed by just a few points at half but were not out of the game. Adams came back to the court determined to make a statement and that they did. The Lady Eagles went on a 33 – 11 run on Tri Central in the second half. The scoring drive allowed Adams to pull away to win the game with a final score of 55-40.

Laila Williams led the way for the Eagles in the win. Williams scored 14 points.

Both Marissa Shelton and Whitney Marshal had big nights as well. Shelton and Marshall each scored 10 points for Adams. Shelton also hit two big three point shots as well.

DaQuejiha Vaughn scored 9 points, Loryn Higginbotham had 8 points, and Samaya Sigur scored 4 points.

With the victory, Adams finished second in the pool and moved to play in the third place game against host Tipton HS on Saturday afternoon.
