The Nettes Basketball Team is state bound again this year after a victory against Southeast Whitfield last Tuesday in the Region Tournament. The Nettes will play at Columbia High School in Decatur Wednesday evening.
The game against South East Whitfield started off as a battle between the two teams with Pickens taking a small 2-point lead after the first quarter 10-8. In the second period, the Nettes took off outscoring South East by 15 points putting up 24, and taking a score of 34-17 into the intermission. After halftime, Pickens would appear to lose the hot-hand they had in the first half only scoring 7 points in the 3rd period, but the Nettes defense would take care of the lack of points by only allowing 5. The final period would see no come back from South East and the Nettes would take the victory 54-32.
For the evening, Sarah Smith lead the team with 18 points and 13 rebounds. Kadie Mullinax would add 15 points to the total followed by Danielle Goss’s 10 points and 10 rebounds. Haley Kalson would add 9 points to the total for the Nettes.
