Pulaski wins with full-team effort

Somerset — Twelve different players scored for the Pulaski County Lady Maroons in their 65-36 victory over Campbellsville on Monday evening at PC Gym.

Tarah Muntz’s Lady Maroons used a big first quarter to pull away from the visiting Lady Eagles, and then never looked back, allowing them to earn a 29-point victory to move to 12-4 on the year.

Muntz, who is in her first season as the head coach at Pulaski County, was really glad to see so many different players get involved over the course of the game.

“This was a really good opportunity for us to get everybody involved and give a chance to really work on a lot of different things,” began the first-year Lady Maroon coach. “I think we did a good job of getting a lot of different people into the game.”

The Lady Maroons went on a 22-2 run in the opening quarter to build a big gap between them and Campbellsville. After a quarter in the books, Pulaski County held a 26-8 advantage over the Lady Eagles.

Pulaski County knocked down four three-pointers in the first period to take a commanding lead over the one-win Lady Eagles. Jeriah Privett hit a pair of treys, while Peyton ‘Pey Pey’ Ingram and Lexi McDonald each knocked down a three-pointer.

The trio of Ingram, Privett, and McDonald led the charge for the Lady Maroons in the first period, as Ingram scored 7 points, while Privett and McDonald both tallied 6 points apiece.

In the second period, Pulaski County outscored the Lady Eagles by a margin of 14-9.

Seven different Lady Maroons would etch their name into the scorebook in a quarter that saw them take a 40-17 lead into the locker room at the intermission.

Lindsay Anderson, a sophomore for the Lady Maroons, tallied 12 of her contest-high 14 points in the second half of action. Anderson scored 5 of the Lady Maroons’ 15 points in the third stanza and 7 of their 11 points in the fourth period.

Heading into the fourth and final quarter of the night, Pulaski County held a 55-27 lead over Campbellsville. The Lady Maroons would hold on to win by a margin of 29 points.

Anderson, who led all scorers with 14 points, also had 5 rebounds in the victory. Ingram chimed in with 10 points and 8 boards for the Lady Maroons, while McDonald also finished in double figures with 10 points.

Nena Barnett scored a team-high 12 points for Campbellsville.

Pulaski County, who moved to 12-4 on the season with the victory over the Lady Eagles, will return to action on Friday evening, when they will travel across town to face the Southwestern Lady Warriors.

That game will be the first of two games of the night at the Wigwam. The girls will get things started at 6 p.m. and then later on, the two boys’ teams will square-off.
