Smith's Ferris too tall for Tigerettes
Feb 13, 2007 12:00 am
CARTHAGE — At 6-foot-8, Cayci Ferris has been attracting major-college attention since she was in middle school.
Watertown got an up-close look [with the emphasis on 'up'] Thursday in a 62-36 loss to Smith County.
Ferris totaled 22 points while guard Kristen Oldham threw in 13.
"She's just so big and she changes the game," Watertown coach Jeff Luttrell said after his Tigerettes wrapped up a 13-12 regular season. "We got shots, but she just cleaned everything off the boards."
Smith County led 12-3 following the first quarter and 29-11 at halftime.
Brittnee Sells threw in three 3-pointers on her way to 18 points for Watertown. Sarah Reeder finished with five while Carley Smith and Miaushia Thompson [who had to go against Ferris] each flipped in four, Laura Clark three and Hannah Forbes two.
Watertown is seeded fourth for the upcoming District 8-A tournament and will host either Mt. Juliet Christian or Trousdale County on Tuesday.
Lady Saints wallop White House Christian
MT. JULIET — Mt. Juliet Christian opened a big first-quarter lead Thursday night and never looked back in a 46-16 whipping of White House Christian.
The Lady Saints led 18-4 following the first quarter and 26-8 at halftime as they improved to 14-13 with a home game left at 6 p.m. Monday against Curry-Ingram before the District 8-A tournament opens the following evening.
Christine Humes had 13 points and six assists for the Lady Saints while Kristen Tewmey added eight points and nine rebounds. Anna Haley scored six points while Ashley Hudson, Holly Morgan and Lauren Bean each finished with four and Leanna Sanders a free throw.
White House Christian fell to 2-11.
Mt. Juliet Christian is expected to flip a coin with Trousdale County at this morning's district meeting to determine the Nos. 5 and 6 seeds for the tournament. No. 5 will travel to Watertown while No. 4 goes to Friendship Christian with the winners advancing to the district semifinals at Gordonsville and the Region 4-A tournament.
