Two wins for BHS hoop girls

Bearden’s Lady Bulldogs could not find an answer for Webb standout sophomore Glory Johnson and lost to the Lady Spartans 45-37 Friday, Jan. 6, at BHS.

The 6-foot-3 Johnson was too much for the Lady Bulldogs (8-8 entering the week) to handle as she unleashed a 34-point performance. “She is the best we have seen and probably the best we will see all year,” BHS head coach Nathan Hodges said. “She was tough you could stop her two, three, four trips but eventually no matter what you do she is going to get the ball on the block and when she gets it down there she is unstoppable.”

However, it was her defense that made the biggest impact. “I really don’t mind her getting her points as long as we can totally shut down the rest of the team, but the big problem was her defense,” the coach said. “The shots that we could get off she was there to at least contest.”

Bearden’s leading scorer, Sarah Himmelreich, had to deal with the headache of being guarded by such a force. “She was guarding me and I could not get open,” Himmelreich said.

In addition to a frustrating offensive night for the senior post, an ankle injury in the first quarter made things worse. Despite the injury, she returned to the game in the second quarter and finished with eight points.

A bright spot for the Lady Bulldogs was the play of freshman post Mary Hirst, who finished the game with eight points. “I thought at times she played really great for us,” Hodges said.

Others scoring for the Lady Bulldogs were Allysia Bailey with 13, Rikki Sanders with five and Kristen Osterman with three.

BHS 56 WEST 53

A 3-pointer by Himmelreich at the buzzer in overtime gave the Lady Bulldogs a 56-53 win over West Wednesday, Jan. 4, at BHS.

Himmelreich finished with 21 points and 14 rebounds. Hirst added 12, Bailey nine, and Osterman and Sanders seven each.


The Lady Bulldogs took a 34-11 halftime lead and never looked back as they destroyed Cocke County Monday, Jan. 2, at CCHS.

Bailey led the BHS offense with 14 points while Osterman added 12. Hirst had nine, Himmelreich eight, Sanders seven, Jenna Maynard six, Tymier Williams five, Taylor Rotella two and Adalyia Parker one.
