A fast start propelled the Farragut High School junior varsity girls basketball team to a 47-30 victory over rival Hardin Valley Academy in the opening round of the Farragut Freshman/JV Tournament Saturday afternoon, Jan. 21, at FHS’s Lynn E. Sexton Gymnasium.

The Lady Admirals opened the game with a flourish, outscoring Hardin Valley 22-10 in the first eight minutes.

Freshman guard Kristen Freeman scored 11 of her game-high 12 points in the opening stanza and buried three 3-pointers during that stretch.

“I’m really proud of my teammates. They played hard,” Freeman said. “They hustled and they got the loose balls.

“We had played [the Lady Hawks] before and we knew that this was going to be a tough game and we knew that we needed a jump start.”

Lady Ads coach Rachel McGinty said, “A lot of our girls know a lot of their girls and Freeman really came in here and helped us out early.”

Farragut got just what it was looking for early. Madyson Newby scored four of her 10 points in the first quarter and Madison Maples added four in the stanza, in which the Lady Admirals converted four outside jumpers. Freeman made three while Annie McMurray hit one. Maples finished with nine points.

Taylor Bishop led HVA with six points. Gabby Fewell and Kattie McLeod scored four apiece.
