For the Pulaski County Lady Maroons, it was a win-win-win scenario on Friday night in the regular season finale for Chris Adkins and crew at Boyle County.
Number one — Pulaski County’s win meant the Lady Maroons will take some much-needed momentum into next week’s Girl’s 47th District Basketball Tournament at Rockcastle County High School, coming into the tourney riding a modest, four-game winning streak.
Number two — The 55-41 over the Lady Rebels Friday night improved PC’s record to 18-11 on the season — the sixth best mark inside the 12th Region.
Number three — In the second quarter on Friday night in the win over Boyle County, Pulaski County senior Heidi Thompson scored the 1,000th point of her prep career.
Not a bad night indeed.
PC raced out to a quick lead in Friday night’s affair, leading the Lady Rebels 21-10 after the first period of play.
In the second frame — while Thompson was scoring her 1,000th point of her outstanding prep career — the Lady Maroons got things done on the defensive end, limiting Boyle County to just three points in the frame.
Thanks to that performance, Adkins and crew led this one at the intermission by a score of 32-13, and basically never looked back on their way to win number 18 of the season.
Pulaski County will begin post season play on Monday night at Rockcastle County High School, taking on the homestanding Lady Rockets in the first round of the Girl’s 47th District Basketball Tournament.
That game is set to get underway at 6 p.m.
