The State No. 1 ranked girls team showed why on Friday night inside of Treadway Gymnasium. Elizabethton pounded an undermanned Johnson County squad 79-13 to run their season record to 23-0.
The Cyclones scored 12 straight points before Kourtney Tolleys deuce got Johnson County on the scoreboard.
The Longhorns lost Kelsey Duperry early in the first quarter which compounded an already thin roster. But despite all that they played hard and gave maximum effort.
I kept pushing and I kept trying, said Micahla Cretsinger who led the rebounding with seven. Coach Whit (Todd Whittemore) never quits on us and we dont want to quit on him.

Tolley led the Longhorns with seven. Cretsinger, Demi Blevins and Brittany Cox provided a basket each.
Johnson County got a twin dose of Kelci and Kayla Marosites who scored 20 and 18 points respectively. Haley Burleson and Emily Kiser added 12 and 10 points in the win.
