The Triopia Lady Trojans were eliminated from post-season play when they lost a 58-36 semifinal contest to South Fulton at the Rushville/Industry Class 1A Tournament last week.
The Lady Blue finished the season with an 11-14 mark under head coach Mike Crawford.
The outcome of the contest was decided in the first stop when the Lady Rebels rushed out to a 16-7 lead and never looked back in the 58-36 final.
Kendi Sayre and Cydney Musch shared scoring honors for Triopia with 11 each, while South Fulton was led by Crouse’s 13 points, while teammate Erin Lascelles tossed in 12 for the winners.
South Fulton used a 21-14 difference in the second stanza when both team’s offense heated up and took a 37-21 margin into the dressing room at intermission.
Following the rest stop the South Fulton Lady Rebels came out smokin’ in the third stanza and ended any hopes of a Lady Blue rally in the second half as they blistered Triopia with a sizzling 19-6 blowout putting them in the catbird seat leading 56-27 entering the final frame.
Triopia managed to outscore South Fulton in the final eight minutes 9-2, but it way too little way too late as the Lady Rebels walked off the victors in a 58-36 final.
“South Fulton deserved the #1 ranking as they rolled past us 58-36. They are worthy regional champions.” I was concerned with the painful knee injury to Sammi Shanks, and hopefully she won’t miss the upcoming softball season,” stated head coach Mike Crawford.
