Seventh-graders sweep Lowndes

MOULTRIE —  The Colquitt County seventh-grade basketball teams traveled to Lowndes Middle School on Tuesday and completed the season sweep as  the girls won 27-6 and the boys earned a come-from-behind 33-26 victory.  

The Lady Packers opened with a 10-0 first quarter and held that lead until Tiffany Smith banked in a deep 3-pointer for the Vikettes midway through the second period.  

“We defended their primary scoring threat pretty well today,” coach Jon Scroggins said.  “We played help defense pretty well – which is something we’ve struggled with, but worked on hard this week.”  

Za’Nautica Downs led the way for the Lady Packers with 15 points, and also recorded 10 steals. Michaela Bennefield scored six points. Eriyona Stokes scored four, Kiarra Lovett led the Lady Packers in rebounding and made a free throw and Ty’Qwasia Peterson made a free throw.

Ten different Lady Packers recorded at least one rebound, and eight notched at least one steal.

Smith scored all six points for the Vikettes.

In the second game, Lowndes took control early and opened up a 17-6 lead.  The lead was 22-13 at halftime, but the second half belonged to the Packers.  

The young Packers turned up the defensive pressure.  Cameron Singletary led the break and J.J. Peterson and Jarvis Christopher were the beneficiaries. Peterson scored 14 points, and Christopher emerged as a strong second scorer, finishing with 11.  

“J.J. didn’t have a big scoring night,” coach Josh Purvis said. “But he had a pretty complete game. He blocked shots, rebounded well, and controlled the paint. I also liked the way Jarvis played tonight. He was more aggressive than usual, looking for his shot.  That makes us harder to defend, when he gets going.

“I think we learned some things about our team tonight,” Purvis said.

Singletary, Kaleb Dawson, Albert Stringer and Leamon Madison added two points each.  

The seventh grade teams are off until January 8, when they face Pine Grove at the Willie J. Williams Middle Schoolgymnasium.

The Lady Packers will take an 8-0 record into the game.The boys are 6-2.

Should abortion be legal for victims of rape?

No. That baby is alive, no matter how horrible its manner of conception.
Yes. It's wrong to force a woman to carry the child of her rapist.
Abortion is a private matter and should be legal for everyone.
