The Dade County Lady Wolverines opened play in the Region 7AA tournament at Georgia Highlands College in Rome on Wednesday needing one win to qualify for the state tournament.

Opening play against Murray County Dade found themselves needing to beat the Lady Indians for the third time this season.

Things didn’t start well for the Lady Wolverines as the Lady Indians seemed determined to spoil their season and took a 10-8 lead at the end of the first quarter.

Dade had a real battle on their hands as the Lady Indians matched them basket for basket and built on their lead in the second quarter. At the end of the first half the Lady Indians held a 23-20 lead.

Coach Randy Watson must have said all the right things at half time because the Lady Wolverines came out a different team. Not only did they take the lead they held Murray County scoreless in the third quarter and built an 11 point lead, 34-23.

More of the same followed in the fourth quarter and the Lady Wolverines head to the state tournament with the 47-32 win.

Erika Woodfin led the Lady Wolverines with 24 points.
