Things are beginning to turn in a positive way for the Winder-Barrow High School Lady Bulldoggs basketball team of late.
WBHS has won seven of its last nine outings and are now 7-8 overall and 3-4 in Region 8-AAAAA. The latest win was a non-region contest against long-time rival Monroe Area on the road Saturday. Coach Brandon Thomas saw his team hold on for a 41-36 win to avenge a close 38-36 setback to the Lady Canes in December.
“The schedule has been more favorable,” Thomas said. “We are playing some teams who have struggled, but the good news is we are winning those games. We’ll see how we do once we get back into the region schedule.”
Jasmine Lyles led the team in scoring with 13, including a crucial lay-up at the end of the game. Adrianna Davis added 11 points and had six rebounds.
