Lady Ads pull away late to end slump

Despite a slow start, and missing two key players due to injury, Farragut’s Lady Admirals ended a recent drought with a 45-29 District 4-AAA home victory against struggling West Friday night, Feb. 2.

“We played a lot better than we have been. I think we played more as a team instead of individually,” said Claire Wyatt, FHS sophomore wing who scored a game-high 12 points.

“I though Claire did a good job of being aggressive with not only shots, but making plays,” Lady Ads head coach Jason Mayfield said.

Hailey Johnson, FHS sophomore guard, added 10 points.

“I feel like we need a lot of things to work through. I feel like we definitely did,” said Madison Hodge, sophmore point guard who scored six for Farragut — both three-point baskets. “Normally I am [a three-point shooter], but they haven’t been falling for me lately. Hitting those two was a real good thing for me.”

“Bri Tookes made a big [three-point] shot there that kind of got us going” in the second quarter, Mayfield said about his sophomore guard who scored six. Brooke Christian tallied five for the Lady Ads (12-12 overall, 7-7 in 4-AAA), with Morgan Carbaugh adding four. Lauren White had two points.

“We’ve been in a little bit of a funk lately, offensively especially,”
