Lady Comets take All "A" title

By MacKenzie Bates - Sports Editor

Jan. 17, 2013 — In the first year of the Bart Stevens era at West Carter, the Lady Comets will play in the All “A” State Tournament.

The Lady Comets, who had the toughest road to win the title, did just that by defeating Elliott County 56-46 Thursday night at Raceland-Worthington High School.

West Carter (7-9) will now play in the All “A” State Tournament next Wednesday Morning at 8:30 a.m. against the winner of the 11th Region Tournament, which will either be Lexington Christian Academy or Frankfort.  The tournament is being held at the Frankfort Convention Center.

The Lady Comets were led in scoring by Lexie Berry’s 23 points.  Fellow senior Brooke Callihan had 17 points and Megan Centers scored 10.  Bonita Easterling had three points, Mikayla Buckler had two points and Chelsea Zeigler had one point to round out the scoring for West Carter.

Brooke Callihan was named the MVP of the tournament and named to the all-tournament team.  Joining her was senior Megan Center, sophomores Lexie Berry and Brooke Adkins.
