The Dade County Lady Wolverines had a big week last week with three region games being played as the season winds down and heads for the region tournament next week.

The Lady Wolverines opened play last week at Murray County and came away with a big road win to improve to 6-4 in region play.

Dade took the early lead and while the host Murray County Lady Indians played them tough for three quarters but they ran out of steam late.

Heading into the fourth quarter the Lady Wolverines were only up 36-28. The fourth quarter belonged to the Lady Wolverines however as they outscored Murray County 20-8 to claim the 56-36 win.

Erika Woodfin led the Lady Wolverines with 22 points followed by Sarah Reid with 14.

On Friday night the Lady Wolverines were again on the road as they traveled to Summerville to face the Lady Indians of Chattooga County.

This game was for all purposes over early as the Lady Wolverines jumped out to a 21-4 first quarter lead and never looked back.

By the end of the first half Dade had built a 46-19 lead. They stayed red hot in the third quarter outscoring the host 25-10 and then only allowed the Lady Indians one fourth quarter point to claim an impressive 85-30 win.

Woodfin again led the Lady Wolverines with 20 points followed by Madison Lacy, Sarah Reid and Ansley Chilton with 12 points each. Ten Dade players scored points in the game.

The Lady Wolverines hosted the Coosa Lady Eagles on Saturday afternoon, a makeup of an earlier game that was canceled due to bad weather.

Actually the weather was better when the game was canceled since the surprise snow on Saturday was coming down hard when the Coosa teams arrived in Dade County.

Taking a commanding lead early in the game Dade was up 22-7 at the end of the first quarter.

The Lady Eagles played better after that first quarter but were never able to make up the deficit and at the end of the first half trailed 36-16.

The Lady Wolverines built on their lead in the third and fourth quarters to claim another region win 59-35.

Chilton dominated play leading the Lady Wolverines with 19 points with Reid and Woodfin scoring nine points each.

This week, the final week of the regular season, had the Lady Wolverines at home on Tuesday night hosting the Pepperell Lady Dragons and then traveling to Coosa on Friday night to face the Lady Eagles again in the season finale.

The region tournament gets underway next week at Georgia Highlands College in Rome. The Lady Wolverines are expected to finish third in the region behind Calhoun and Model. Those two teams earned a spot in the state tournament by finishing first and second while the Lady Wolverines will need to finish in the top four of the tournament to advance to state play.
