BLUFF CITY— Johnson County girls’ basketball season ended rougher than a 60-grit piece of sandpaper on Wednesday. Sullivan East clobbered the Longhorns 74-27 in the first round of the District 1-AA tournament played inside the Dyer Dome.
It was total domination by the Lady Pats who led 22-2 after one. They extended that to 41-9 at the half while picking up their 20th win of the season.
“East is a really good team,” said Micahla Cretsinger who ended the game with 17 points and six rebounds for Johnson County. “They are just a better team than we are.”
Despite the large deficit, the Longhorns never quit hustling.
Jaymie Jennings ended the contest with five points and nine rebounds. She, along with Cretsinger, Kelsey Duperry and Kourtney Tolley will all be a part of Dana Smith's Lady Longhorns softball team.
“We wanted to do better for Coach Whitt,” added Cretsinger. “But it’s been an uphill battle all season. We didn't have enough players after the freshmen quit, but we'll bounce back. Not everyone up here wants us to do well. We're going to work hard and get better. We're determined to turn this basketball program around.”
