The Central High Lady Lions defeated Choctaw County High School 90-42 Monday night Feb. 12 to advance to the central regionals at Alabama State University’s Dunn-Oliver Acadome on Friday, Feb. 16.
The Lady Lions hosted Monday’s game at the Jackson-Steele Community Center in White Hall, but will face R.C. Hatch High School at the Acadome.
Central Lady Lions head basketball coach Terry Thomas said Cordasia Harris led the Lady Lions with 28 points, Derrica McCall scored 21, Kadaijah Williams scored 17 and Melody Walker scored 17 points.
Thomas said Walker, a junior, is the only player on the team to play all five positions. He also said his team’s effort on defense and making shots, clicking at the right time put them in the position to get back to Alabama State for regional play and he can’t wait.
