HUNTSVILLE | Last month, Scott High lost a district game at Anderson County. Though the game was never particularly close, it felt like a game the Lady Highlanders should’ve won.
In Friday’s rematch, Scott High made up for whatever was missing during the earlier game in Clinton, rolling to a 49-18 win over the Mavericks in a dominating effort.
Brittany Morrow finished with 14 points and recorded four steals, and was named the First National Bank Player of the Game.
Scott High shot 42% from the field, marking the second time in a week the Lady Highlanders surpassed a 40% shooting percentage.
Anderson County hit a 3-point shot out of the gate, then didn’t score another field goal until midway through the second quarter. The Mavs didn’t reach double-digits until midway through the third quarter.
Meanwhile, Morrow and Lawson teamed up for 14 points in the third quarter to end any hope of an AC comeback, turning a 24-8 halftime lead into a 42-10 advantage as the fourth quarter began.
Brianna Jeffers was named the Trophy Masters Hustle Award winner after finishing with three steals.
Rachel Garrett had a team-high five rebounds. Lewis had a team-high four assists.
The win was Scott High’s first win in District 4-3A play this season, and evened the Lady Highlanders’ record at 10-10. It marks the first time in five years that SHS has been at .500 this late into the season. It was also the largest margin of victory for Scott High in a district game in more than 20 years.
