The freshman girls were hoping to get a signature win on Saturday and they did so inside of Ray Shoun Gymnasium. The Lady Longhorns jumped on Dobyns-Bennet early and never looked back, winning 58-32.
It was an impressive showing by the Longhorns who placed three players in double figures.
Natalie Winters scored 10 points in the first quarter helping Johnson County build an 18-8 advantage. Abby Cornett had a pair of buckets. Taylor Parsons and Adrian Hall added one each.
They stretched the advantage to 29-17 at the half with the aid of five points from Cornett and four more by Parsons.
The Longhorns put the game away with a 20-point outburst in the third.
Hall and Hannah Brooks got things started with a basket each and Cornett sandwiched in a trey. Parsons stole the show, scoring nine of her 15 points in the frame.
Reserves would finish out the contest.
