The Cedarville Sr Lady Pirates feverishly hit the court this basketball season delivering one win after another to every opponent that crossed their path. Prairie Grove, Lifeway, Ozark, Lavaca, and Pea Ridge all felt the wrath of the Lady Pirates. At 5-0, the girls were hotter than butter on a biscuit with zero signs of slowing down. But then it happened. The wall. By the time cancelations and postponements were done, the Lady Pirates had 23 days gone and six games missed. Although this very well could have crippled the Sr Lady Pirates, they took the challenge and came back better than ever.

On December 17th, the Lady Pirates faced the Waldron Lady Bulldogs for their first game back in action and walked away with a 60-41 victory with senior, Anna Hightower, leading Cedarville with 16 points. Jumping right back in where they had left off, the Sr Lady Pirates had two more back-to-back games to focus on before heading into Christmas break. On December 21st, Cedarville had to take on Green Forest and then face the Lincoln Lady Wolves the following night.

“We played much better and much harder against Green Forest than we did in our first game back after our 23-day layoff,” explained coach, Andrew Tencleve. “We didn’t shoot the ball well at all but it was an improvement from our Waldron game.” The Lady Pirates snagged their seventh victory with a 52-34 score against Green Forest with senior, Katie McBroom, earning 13 points trailed by sophomores, McKenzie Marion with 9, and Emily Wood with 8 points and 8 rebounds.

Sailing right along, it was time for their match with Lincoln. “We looked much more like ourselves in this game! Foul trouble was an issue in the first half so it took us a little while to get away from them. The 63-37 victory was a great way to go into Christmas break.” Senior, Chloe Morrow, caged the Lady Wolves and netted 16 points, Emily Wood had no problem leashing the competition earning her 14 points and Anna Hightower sidelined her opponents scoring 13 points. To close out 2020, the Lady Pirates have a huge conference game on December 30th against the Booneville Lady Bearcats. The Sr Lady Pirates will go into the match with an undefeated 8-0 total play record and 1-0 in conference.
