The East Gadsden High School Lady Jaguars basketball team is destroying anyone in its path and last week it was two district opponents, Panama City Bay and Wakulla.

First up was Bay. East Gadsden jumped out 26-13 at the end of the first quarter and led 42-17 at the half.

The final score was a high scoring 75-50 contest.

Jasmine Grice led in scoring with 24 points and Chalandrea Brown added 17 points. Grice hit three 3-pointers and T’Erica Frost dished out seven assists.

East Gadsden moved to 14-3 on the season and 6-1 in district play.

While Wakulla played stingier defense and held the Jaguars to a lower score, the end result was the same. East Gadsden defeated Wakulla 58-43.

Grice scored 31 of the 58 points and Frost added 10 points.

Daphne McLaurin pulled down seven rebounds and Frost had five assists. Grice picked off a high nine steals. The team finished the week with an overall record of 15-3.

Munroe wins one, loses one

The Lady Cats of Robert F. Munroe would have rather won two games last week but will settle with a district win over John Paul II instead.

The Lady Cats outscored John Paul each quarter and led 23-12 at the half.

Kristen Allen led all scorers with 18 and Anna Dooner added 15.

Courtney Mayo led in rebounding with eight and Allen and Dooner each had seven.

Carrie Scott dished out seven assists.

The Lady Cats were seeking revenge against Covenant Christian of Panama City, but instead lost 43-34.

The Munroe team kept it close and interesting most of the game and were down only four 27-23 at the half.

For the second time in the week the Lady Cats were led in scoring by sophomore guard Allen, who finished with 16 points.

Dooner added 10 points and freshman Beth Summerford had five rebounds.

WGHS girls split games

Port St. Joe bested West Gadsden High School’s Lady Panthers in a key district matchup last Tuesday 53-29.

PSJ jumped out to a quick 18-8 first-quarter score and led 38-13 at the half. Kayla Streeter scored 14 points and Keundria Wright added nine.

The Lady Panthers reorganized and revenged the loss to Port St Joe by blasting Liberty County.

They led 38-14 at the half and went on to take the district win 47-24.

Streeter and Wright combined for 36 points. Wright also pulled down 16 rebounds for a double-double. Jasmine Charleston added 10 rebounds.

The team moved to 8-5 on the season with the win.
