FMS girls bounce back

During an uncertain offseason, a pair of eighth graders for the Farragut Middle School girls basketball team went to work in preparation for their third and final season with FMS.

Sydney English and Annie Priest have helped the Lady Admirals make two section tournament runs, and they helped FMS pick up its first win of the 2020-21 season in their home opener Thursday, Nov. 5.

Sydney scored 21 points and Annie added six to help the Lady Admirals notch a 40-28 victory over Carter Middle School (1-1) before a spirited crowd in FMS’s Bobby J. Henry Gymnasium.

“It feels great to get our first win of the season,” said FMS second-year head coach Devan McIntyre, whose team improved to 1-1. “Sydney and Annie really went to work during the offseason to improve their game, and tonight they did what they needed to do. They did what we needed from them.”

Anna Corum finished the contest with seven points for the Lady Admirals.
