The Chester Lady Jackets remain undefeated in district play with a 38-11 win over the Burkeville Lady Mustangs. In a very physical contest, the Lady Jackets were able to rally together to easily shut the Lady Mustangs out. The Lady Jackets were all over the ball with rebounds, steals and assists. The Lady Mustangs physical aggression was no match for the Lady Jackets' speed and agility. The Lady Jackets were able to capitalize on the Lady Mustangs mistakes to dominate the game. The Lady Jackets were led by Jaci Davis and Tyra Adair who each scored nine points. Timber Wright added in eight points and Destiny Kuehn added six points. Kyrstin Jobe had four points and Maddie Read chipped in two to round out the Lady Jackets scoring.
"I was very pleased with the Lady Jackets effort. We got out early on Burkeville in large point because of our speed. When Burkeville realized they could not handle our speed, they made the game into a very physical contest. Our girls stepped up and showed that we could handle their physicality and still keep our heads about us. We didn't allow them to take us out of our game plan and I think the final score shows how disciplined our girls are becoming," said Coach Hall.
