Snow and cold weather in Cedar City, Utah is not posing a problem for the Lincoln County Lady Lynx at the Steve Hodson Cancer Classic in Cedar City this week.
Coach Lori Cheeney said this were “2 or 3 inches of new snow on the ground Tuesday morning and it is still coming down, so it’s difficult getting around.”
But on the basketball court, the Lincoln girls were getting around quite well in their first game on the tournament Monday night.
“We played Grantsville, Utah, (3-7, a town near the south end of the Great Salt Lake) and beat them 56-43. We were ahead by about 14 points at halftime, but in the third quarter we came out a little slow and they tightened it up to about four points. But we pulled away in the fourth quarter.”
Savannah Harr had 13 points, and Kayla Mathews added 16 points as the Lynx (7-2) had spread the scoring between 10 of the 12 players. “Even the girls that were not scoring, were rebounding. It was a very good balanced effort,” Cheeney said.
Lincoln was to play Millard County, Utah Tuesday evening.
The next home games for the Lincoln girls are this Friday and Saturday with Needles and Laughlin. The Laughlin game is at Noon. And they host White Pine on Tuesday Jan. 6.
