Defense paces McIntyre’s girls
A stifling defense and a balanced offensive attack were the ingredients in a winning recipe for the Farragut Middle School girls basketball team in a home victory late last week.
The Lady Admirals got off to a fast start and posted a dominant performance in a 56-8 win versus Northwest (0-3) Thursday, Nov. 14, at FMS’s Bobby J. Henry Gymnasium.
“We have to have that in-your-face intensity on defense and we have to work hard and get these girls ready for the high school level,” first-year Farragut head coach Devan McIntyre said. “We’re really working hard to improve our defensive intensity.”
Hannah Enderson led the way with 13 points for the Lady Ads. Addison Pressley scored eight points, while Sydney English, Kaitlyn Atwell and Madelyn Murphy added six points each.
Annie Priest scored five, while Malena Maier and Carly Vining each popped in four. Riley Kate Ragan and Josie Tarantino scored two apiece.
Farragut (3-0 starting the week) routed Holston 42-15 Thursday, Nov. 7, then went to Halls and captured an in-school victory over the Lady Demons 38-28 Friday, Nov. 15.
