The LFO War­riors and Lady War­riors ex­pe­ri­enced both ups and downs at the sea­son-open­ing Chat­tanooga Chris­tian Thanks­giv­ing Tour­na­ment last week as both squads went 1-2 in the three-day event.

The LFO girls opened last Tues­day night by run­ning away and hid­ing from East Ridge, 54-11. LFO blasted out of the gates to a 21-0 lead af­ter the first quar­ter and scored the first eight points of the sec­ond quar­ter be­fore the Lady Pi­o­neers fi­nally got on the board with 5:30 left be­fore half­time.

Macey Gregg had 19 points, seven steals, six re­bounds and five as­sists. Mil­i­jah Wil­liams had 14 points, five steals and three as­sists. Anna Roun­tree fin­ished with six points, while Ateana Copeland had four points and nine boards. Me­gan Oliver scored four, Alesya Mcbur­nett added three and Macken­zie Be­g­ley and Dekeia Rowe had two each.

Three nights later, the Lady War­riors were outscored 21-4 in the sec­ond quar­ter and were un­able to make up the deficit as they lost to Look­out Val­ley, 53-45.

Gregg poured in a team-high 26 points to go with nine re­bounds and four steals. Wil­liams had nine points, four as­sists and five steals. Roun­tree had five points, Mcbur­nett had three points and Be­g­ley added two to round out the scor­ing.

Against the host school in the fi­nale on Satur­day, the Lady Charg­ers bolted out to a 39-15 lead at half­time and never looked back in a 71-52 vic­tory.

Gregg blis­tered the nets for 28 points in the loss. Wil­liams had 11 points and four as­sists. Roun­tree dropped in eight points, while Copeland fin­ished with four points and three re­bounds.
