Placeholder Image
Monday’s game at Irving College between the Lady Tigers and Dibrell Lady Wildcats proved to be the regular-season championship game.With a 43-28 victory, powered by Callie Cathcart’s 15 points, Irving College clinched the top spot in the regular season by improving to 8-0 in the Warren County 7-8 grade girls elementary league.Dibrell (6-2) came into the contest as the only team that had a chance to catch the Lady Tigers in the standings, but the Lady Wildcats weren’t able to stop Irving College on their home court – especially the league’s leading scorer. Cathcart became the first girl in the league to notch 100 points this season as she led the Lady Tigers to their eighth straight victory. Cathcart was instrumental down the stretch in helping Irving College seal the victory while Candace Wanamaker did most of the heavy lifting on offense in the first half.Dibrell designed its defense to limit the productivity of Cathcart, who averages 13.5 points per game, and Caylie Sherrell – the league’s second-leading scorer at 12.1 points per contest.
