The Lady Warriors returned from the winter break ready to play and ready to win, which is just what they did when they took on Lewisville.
Mariah Williams led the team with a total of 16 points. Teammate Jelisa Gordon scored 11 points for the night, followed by Shelby McConnell with nine.
Indian Land's winning streak continued last Tuesday as the Warriors took on McBee, winning 63-46. Mariah Williams led again with a total of 14 points, followed by Hannah Harris with 11 points and an impressive 12 rebounds. Jelisa Gordon had 12 points and Shelby McConnell chipped in eight.
"We put a little more pressure on the ball in the second half," head coach Tamara Jacobus said.
"We created some turnovers that turned into some easy baskets for us."
The game was not without its surprises for the Lady Warriors. At one point, a McBee player hit four, three-point shots that Jacobus admitted the team was not expecting.
Despite the winning streak, Indian Land is not without adversity this season. What was thought to be a torn ACL for star player Mykela Hallums was confirmed by doctors to be be worse. The knee ligament is actually completely ruptured and Hallums will need season-ending surgery.
In her absence, other players have had to elevate their games.
"Alyssa Thomas Junior and Tamkea Robinson have both stepped up and been valuable players for this team since the loss of MyKela," Jacobus said.
The Warriors hope to continue and improve their 8-5, (2-0 in the region) record as they take on Chesterfield Jan. 20. The team was scheduled to play North Central Tuesday.
