Lady Beavers make 3rd straight state trip

Three years ago the Scott Community High School girls had never experienced a state basketball tournament.

Now they are taking up permanent residence in the tournament when March rolls around.

In a sub-state title game that was rarely in doubt, the Lady Beavers (17-6) defeated Cimarron, 50-37, to punch their ticket to the state tournament for a third consecutive season.

Junior center Emily Weathers was nearly perfect from the field while scoring a game high 20 points and the Lady Beavers forced 22 turnovers in defeating Cimarron for the second time this season.

“Emily’s a gamer. She loves big-time games,” says head coach Sarah McCormick. “She has the most experience of anyone here and she’s not going to back down. She knows we’re going to go to her a lot offensively.

“Tonight was her night and we kept feeding her the ball.”

Weathers, who hit 8-of-10 from the field and 4-of-4 at the line, says her success often “begins with the defense and how it transitions into our offense.”
