Lady Tigers notch eighth victory

Bradwell Institute’s girls basketball team continued its winning ways with a 63-55 victory Friday night in Jacksonville, Fla., against Wolfson High School.
The Lady Tigers’ win was their seventh straight since a 73-70 overtime loss Dec. 2 to Coffee. They are now 8-1.
Lady Tigers coach Faye Baker said her squad was down 12-6 in the first period at Wolfson. Bradwell, however, started rebounding the ball better, pulled ahead of the Lady Wolfpack, and stayed there.
“We didn’t play very well,” Baker said. “We had not played for 10 days, and it showed. That is why I’m glad we had two non-region games before we play Savannah (High on Tuesday).”
The Lady Tigers played host to Long County on Saturday. The game was not complete before presstime.
Against Wolfson, Brittany Speight paced the Lady Tigers with 19 points. Seandre Lee contributed 16, while Condone Chapman had 11 and Camille Jackson added 10.
Wolfson fell to 6-3.
All Region 3-AAAAA games are important, but Tuesday’s home game against Savannah High means a little more than usual to Baker. That’s because she and Blue Jackets coach April Tate are good friends.
“We have a mutual respect for each other,” Baker said. “The only time we are not rooting for each other is when we are playing against each other.”
Tate’s team is 0-3 in the region, but Baker said that only means the Lady Blue Jackets will come at her squad even harder to get a win. The tip–off is scheduled for 6 p.m.
On Friday, the Lady Tigers will host another region opponent, Windsor Forest. That game is scheduled to start at 6:30 p.m.
