In county basketball action last week, West Gadsden High School was the only team to pick up a win and the Panthers picked up two to move to 3-5 on the season. 

East Gadsden High and Robert F. Munroe Day School each lost two games. This week marks the last week of games until after Christmas break for all three teams with the exception of East Gadsden, which hosts basketball power Ribault Dec. 22.

West Gadsden defeated Aucilla 34-30 using a strong second and third quarter to give them their second win of the season. Kayla Streeter led all scorers with 16 points and eighth grader Tesherica McMillon added 10 points, six rebounds and five steals.

On Friday night the girls picked up another win with a convincing 67-33 thumping of Wewahitchcka.  Streeter had a near quadruple-double with a season high 28 points, 10 rebounds, eight assists and eight steals.  McMillon finished with 15 points, four rebounds and eight assists.

Despite having three players in double figures scoring the Lady Jags lost 53-43 to Florida High.  Chalandria Brown hit for 14, Tianna Wimes scored 12 and LaBrittany McDonald kicked in 11 points.  Florida High led 25-17 at the half.

The Munroe Lady Cats took two losses in home games last week against district opponent Malone and Georgia school Brookwood of Thomasville. Munroe hung tough with perennial power Malone for most of the game before losing 51-36. The Lady Cats were down by three at the end of the first quarter and seven at the half.

Kristen Allen scored 15 points including a pair of three-pointers.  She also added seven rebounds and three steals.  Spenser Morris added nine points and seven rebounds and Courtney Mayo pulled down a team-high eight rebounds.
