Girls Varsity Basketball Begins Region Play
The Lady Cats began region play down several players due to illness and injury.
The Lady Cats of Westminster Basketball took a depleted roster to their region opener last Friday night in Milledgeville, GA, & fell 47-20 to a 15-1 John Milledge team who’s now squarely in first place in Region 4-AAA. WSA was missing 2 starters & 2 reserves as the flu wreaked havoc with the team along with some untimely injuries.
Westminster was led by midyear transfer & Lady Cat newbie Cammi Williamson’s 9 points. Williamson is a 5-4 junior point guard who transferred from Aquinas in December. Sophomore post Madison Huss snared 8 rebounds to lead WSA, whose record fell to 8-4 on the season overall and 0-1 in Region 4-AAA.
On Tuesday night, the Lady Cats hosted region rival Bethlehem Christian (Winder, GA). WSA spent a considerable amount of time in this game behind, but never more than 6 points. Still, both teams fought hard & defended well.
Westminster enjoyed a strong fourth quarter which saw them surge ahead in the game’s final minutes. WSA was led by junior post Kaleigh Bakeman, fresh off a bout with the flu. Bakeman scored 17 points & snared 14 rebounds. Cammi Williamson scored 7 points as the Lady Cats won 37-33. WSA’s record is now 9-4 overall & 1-1 in Region 4-AAA. Westminster now hits the road Thursday night against Calhoun Falls Magnet (SC) at 6PM & then comes home to entertain Augusta Christian, a member of SCISA, on Saturday at 2:30PM.
