PHS Basketball, Team FYN Sports

Last night, the PHS Dragonettes varsity basketball team traveled to Dalton to take on the Southeast Whitfield Lady Raiders in their final 6-AAAA region ball game before the region tournament next week. Pickens, looked to regain momentum after a tough overtime loss to non-region opponent, Chestatee, this past Saturday.


In the 1st, the ‘Nettes got off to a quick start on both sides of the ball. Using defense to lead to offense, Pickens held a 16-3 lead over the Lady Raiders going to the 2nd. In the 2nd, it would be more of the same from the ‘Nettes as they would add to their lead. Using a 20-7 quarter run, Pickens took a 36-10 lead over Southeast Whitfield going to the break.


The 2nd unit & younger girls for Pickens got some very valuable playing time in the 2nd half of this one & they faired very well. A 14-6 quarter run for the ‘Nettes, extended their lead going to the 4th to 50-16. After closing things out in the 4th, Pickens took this one, 58-28.


Leading the way for the ‘Nettes were:
