Midway into the third quarter, the score at Lockard Gym was Campbell 46 Clinton 22. Skylar Boshears had 23 points at that stage of the game representing half of the Lady Cougars total and one more than the Lady Dragons as a team. It was that kind of night for Campbell County.
The second quarter and the first part of the third quarter separated the two longtime foes. Campbell built a 13-10 first quarter lead into a 34 to 19 halftime advantage before scoring the first ten points of the second half. That’s where the Lady Cougars largest lead came at 44 to 19 enroute to a 68 to 45 victory.
Madison Brady joined teammates Skylar Boshears (1,500+) and Haley Comer (1,000+) as she eclipsed the 1,000 career point mark. Assistant Coach Bo Vinsant, filling in for Head Coach Brad Honeycutt on the TCAT Postgame Report, called it very rare to have three 1,000 point scorers on the same team.
Tuesday night’s scoring was led by Boshears with 25 followed by 16 from Brady and 13 from Comer. Blair Medley and Lexy Richardson added five points each with Raley Snodgrass chipping in four. Starter Emily Ellison, injured in Friday night’s loss at Oak Ridge, did not suit up for the Clinton game. Myra Sexton started in Ellison’s spot.
The Lady Cougars finish the district schedule at 13 & 1 improving their overall mark to 25 & 3. Clinton has one district game to go and is 14 & 11 in all games and 6 & 7 in the district.
The Lady Cougars are co-champs with Oak Ridge for the regular season district title. In a coaches meeting later today, a coin toss will determine which team will serve as the top seed in next week’s District 3-AAA basketball tournament to be played at Karns High School.
Clinton broke open a tight game to take the boys game 84 to 68.
