Chapel Hill Lady Devils pick up two wins to begin the season

The Chapel Hill Lady Devils basketball team started off their season by picking up a pair of wins this past Thursday and Saturday. Thursday the Lady Devils hosted 4A Henderson at Chapel Hill. The game went the way of the Lady Devils and they were able to fend off a ferocious assault by the Lady Lions at the end to win 71-66. It was a great game for the Lady Devils as four girls posted double-digit scoring — Kaylyn Tompkins, Rebekah Crane, Erica Waldo and Mason Garrett. The real stat-busters of that game were Rebekah Cranes, 8 assists, and Mason Garrett, 8-for-8 shooting from the three point line. The Lady Devils on Saturday traveled to Commerce to face the Lady Tigers. From the time Chapel Hill got off the bus until they got back on the bus, it was all Chapel Hill. The Lady Devils poured on a monster effort in the first half, outscoring Commerce 42-5. The second half mirrored much of the first, with Chapel Hill winning 71-11. Once again Rebekah Crane dished out 7 assists to lead the team with Kaylyn Tompkins right behind her with 6 assists of her own. Amber Guess and Mason Garrett were both 4-for-6 shooting from the three point line.
