EHS prevails in junior varsity games

By Ivan Sanders

   The Elizabethon junior varsity squads roped the Longhorns of Johnson County on Tuesday at Treadway Gym to take two impressive victories.
   In girls action, Valnessha Redd pumped in 21 points and Sarah Smith contributed 12 as the Lady Cyclones shot down the Lady 'Horns 51-34. The Lady Cyclones built a 26-12 half-time advantage and never looked back in taking the win.
   Valerie Kauffeld continued her hot hand netting seven, while Allison Cook added six. Nikki Crowe and Brandi Forbes closed out the scoring for the Lady Cyclones with three and two points respectively.
   Shanna Phipps paced the Lady 'Horns with 11. Brittany Cole collected 9 points and Elene Owens garnered seven for the Lady 'Horns effort.
   In boys action, the 'Horns were able to keep it close after one period at 14-12, but that would be the last time they even came close to the Cyclones as EHS had 11 players score at least one bucket in a 61-38 victory. Chris Vaughn registered 15 points and Jordan Bray knocked down 14 to pave the way for the Cyclones.
   Adam Turley contributed 6, while Michael Porter, Derek Wilson, Jeremy Robinson, Brad Brown, and Jonathan Laing all collected four each. Phillip Garland, Nathan Coffman, and J.R. McFarland were the other Cyclones to score, as each player recorded a bucket.
   Frank Icenhour led the way for the 'Horns with 9 points on some tough inside scoring. Chris McCloud, Zak Trivette, Mitch Harper, and Kyle Waters added six each for Johnson County.
