Miller Grove Takes Tournament Title

The Lady Griffins were denied the crown in the debut Breast Cancer Awareness tournament at Fairfield Central High School Saturday night as they were outmatched in the finals, 63-30, by the Lady Wolverines of Miller Grove High School (Ga.).

The Lady Wolverines broke the full-court press efforts of Fairfield Central early on with a precision passing game. The Lady Griffins, however, were not so capable, and the Miller Grove defense held Fairfield Central to just nine first-half points. Forced turnovers and transition points boosted the Miller Grove lead to 41-9 at the break, and Raven Rivers, Chelsea Seibles and Tiea Quanna Pearson all found themselves in foul trouble.

Jada Martin led the Lady Griffins with eight points. The Lady Wolverines were led by Klarissa Weaver with 15 and Katie Hunt with 12.

The boys’ squad, meanwhile, closed out the tournament Friday with a 61-41 win over Camden in the consolation bracket. Keith Workman put up 22 points for the Griffins, while Daniel Maple added 11.

Both boys’ and girls’ teams travel to Columbia High School Jan. 4 for their region opener. Girls tip at 6:30 p.m.
