Any jitters the Boyd Lady Broncos felt about entering the Middle Tennessee Athletic Conference as the undefeated No. 1 seed were gone by halftime Thursday night at J.K. Stanley Gymnasium.After a slow start against the Western Kentucky Trailblazers, the Lady Broncos found their groove in the second quarter and never looked back. Behind a big night from Claire LeDuc, Boyd cruised to a 66-43 victory.Boyd, which finished the regular season with a 14-0 MTAC record, seemed to have trouble in the early going against the Trailblazers.The Lady Broncos never fell behind, leading from start to finish, but Western Kentucky hung within one most of the first quarter as Sarah Peters scored all eight of her team’s points.By the time seniors Marisa Hillis and Ashley Newby scored late in the period for Boyd, the Lady Broncos had established a 13-8 advantage.Then eighth-grader Rhiannon Hoover emerged from the bench to spark her team.
