Lady Ads fourth in Atlanta tourney

A quick start earning them two wins allowed the Farragut Lady Admirals to finish fourth among a 16-team field during the 16th Annual Deep South Classic in Atlanta Dec. 27-30.

“I was real happy, I thought we played really well against some tough competition,” FHS head coach Mike Driver said. “All these teams are quick, so it really helped us. I thought we did a good job with the speed and play as well as we did.

“I thought we played extremely hard and played good defense,” the coach added. “I thought we played very disciplined basketball, and we executed very well at times.”

Sophomore guard Stephanie Torrence, an All-tournament selection who is considered Farragut’s top offensive threat, fired in 15 points to lead the way in Farragut’s 48-34 win against Peachtree Ridge (Ga.), Dec. 27 as 10 FHS players scored.

“Stephanie played really well,” Driver said.

C.J. Dake and Brittany Doss each scored six, Meredith Lindley five, Amanda Isbell four, Kara Beth Beverly three, Jennifer Rutherford and Stephanie Harris two each and Morgan Holbrook one point.

Beverly’s 14 points led the way among three Lady Ads in double figures in a 56-46 win against Brookwood (Ga.), handing the tournament host its first loss of the season. Dec. 28. Torrence and Allison Bosse each scored 10.

“I though Allison Bosse had a good game, and a good solid tournament for us,” Driver said.

Also praised for a “good game” by Driver was Doss, a sophomore point guard who scored nine. Dake added six, Simmons four and Holbrook three points.

Facing unbeaten Greater Atlanta Christian in Friday’s semifinals, Farragut lost 57-46 despite Torrence’s 20 points.

Dake scored nine, Bosse six, Andrea Britton three and two each from Beverly, Harris, Simmons and Katie Cafferky.

“I thought Kiah did a real good job on the boards,” Driver said about Simmons’ 14 rebounds in addition to four blocked shots.

Atlanta’s Mill Creek features one of the best girls players in the state, and guard Porsha Porter proved it against Farragut in Saturday’s consolation game.

Porter scored 30 of Mill Creek’s 36 points in the second half, 34 total, to lead her team past FHS 56-55.

Beverly, with 10 points, was Farragut’s only double-digit scorer. Torrence added nine, Simmons eight, Rutherford seven, Bosse and Dake six each, Holbrook, Harris, Brooke LeGate and Doss two each and Britton one point.

Overall, “Coming off the bench I though Meredith Lindley played well, solid defense, and so did Morgan Holbrook” Driver said.

Farragut entered the week 9-8 overall, 1-4 in District 4-AAA.
