The Lincoln County High School girls basketball team is undefeated thus far and is winning in impressive fashion.
The Lady Lynx made easy work of both Lake Mead and Mountain View last weekend in Panaca. They beat the Lady Eagles 43-13 on Friday and took care of Mountain View 56-15 the following day. “I feel like the girls really moved the ball well,” said Lincoln coach Ken Thornock. “I think that they’re starting to understand the defensive principles that we’re playing, and they are moving accordingly.”
In the Lake Mead game, Savannah Harr led the way with 10 points. Kristal Jackson scored nine, and Kailey Kelley eight for the Lady Lynx.
Against Mountain View, Easton TIngey had 13 points, three rebounds and one steal for Lincoln. Harr scored 10 points and had four steals. Hannah Hafen pitched in eight points, three rebounds and one steal.
“The biggest thing is, with these teams that we play, we played really hard for the first half and then we have to modify how we play in the second half,” Thornock said. “So we don’t beat them too bad.”
On Tuesday the Lady Lynx hosted Pahranagat Valley in a non-league matchup and beat the Lady Panthers 54-24. Hafen led all scorers with 14 points. She also had eight rebounds, four steals, one block and one assist. Harr added 12 points, five assists, five steals, three rebounds and one blocked shot. Jackson had 10 points, eight rebounds, three blocks and three steals.
The Lady Lynx are now 8-0 overall and 2-0 in the Division III Southern League. They next host Calvary Chapel (3-4, 0-2) this afternoon at 4:30 p.m. They play The Meadows (1-5, 0-2) tomorrow at 1:30 p.m. in Panaca.
Thornock simply wants to continue to improve each week. “I feel like we’re running our offense better each game and we’re starting to send a rotation on defense a lot better,” he added.
