Lady Beavers find mental toughness to rally at Hugoton
The need for toughness is something the Scott Community High School girls have been hearing a lot from head coach Sarah McCormick.
Most of the time, she’s referring to the need to be more physical when battling for rebounds and taking the ball into the paint.
Against Hugoton, the Lady Beavers answered the challenge with a show of mental toughness in the second half that led to a come-from-behind 42-41 road win against Hugoton.
“I told the girls at halftime that if we were going to come back it was going to take a lot of heart. I saw that,” says McCormick. “This game was a step forward for us. It’s hard to come back from 11 down when you’re shooting as poorly as we did.”
The game didn’t start out badly for the Lady Beavers (3-2). Freshman Amber Latta came off the bench to score four points, followed by a steal and layin by Jacy Rose that put SCHS on top, 8-2.
Scott City added just one more field goal during the next 5-1/2 minutes as Hugoton grabbed a 15-11 lead. The Lady Beavers hit only one basket from the field in the second quarter as they fell behind, 27-16, at halftime.
