Lady Hounds’ winning streak continues

The Fort Scott Community College women’s basketball team’s strong start to the season continued Tuesday evening with a narrow win over the State Fair Community College Roadrunners.


The Lady Greyhounds (4-0) remain undefeated in coach Jeff Tadtman’s first season at FSCC after a 59-56 win over the Lady Roadrunners (1-2), despite trailing SFCC by one point at halftime. But stronger defense as well as good shooting gave the ‘Hounds a ten point lead in the fourth quarter, only for the Roadrunners to battle their way back to within two points in the last nine seconds of the game.

Sophomore Jordyn Danzer led all players with 16 points for the ‘Hounds, making seven of seven free throws, while sophomore Natalia Ready added 14 points, including two back-to-back three pointers at the beginning of the final quarter.

But while the girls found success, the men’s team dropped their second game in a row. Although coming to within seven points late in the game, the ‘Hounds eventually lost to the Roadrunners, 78-56.

Roadrunners’ sophomore Willie Jimerson, Jr., led his team and the entire game with 27 points, while the Roadrunners finished with more than a 50 percent field goal average. The ‘Hounds made just 29 percent of their shots.

Freshman Tyler Zinn led the Greyhounds with 17 points, while freshman Chrision Wilburn added 13 points.
