WEBSTER COUNTY, Ky. (2/6/13) - What a night for Webster County senior Kolbi Edens. You could call her ‘court queen’.

The talented guard led the Lady Trojans to an easy 65-45 win over arch-rival Union county with a career-high 27 points, netting 5-of-11 3-pointers and pulling down five rebounds. Then just moments after the victory, she was crowned basketball Homecoming Queen. Not a bad night’s work.

Webster upped its record to a very impressive 19-4 mark with the win.

“I’m very proud of our effort, we played much harder and we shared the ball as well as we have all year,” noted WCHS head coach Parker McCalister. “Our defensive intensity was much better tonight.” Webster led from the opening tip, posting a strong 13-5 run in the first quarter.

That lead grew to 27-14 at halftime as the turnovers began to mount against the Bravettes. A total of 12 first half miscues allowed the Lady Trojans easy transition baskets and finding the ‘open man’ was the key. WCHS shared the basketball to the tune of a season-high 19 assists, led by seven from Mariah Herrera and three apiece from Bailey Townsend and Darrian McNary.

Union committed 22 turnovers in the loss. McNary also finished in double figures with 10 points, four coming in the third quarter when the Lady Trojans added to their lead 43-26 against the very young Union County squad. She also added six rebounds.wc girls3

“Our defensive effort still has to improve and we have to continue to get better and play with that intensity for 32 minutes,” noted McCalister as his squad prepared for All “A” Classic State Champion and #5 Owensboro Catholic on Tuesday. The Lady Aces feature this year’s probable Miss Kentucky Basketball and Duke University signee Rebecca Greenwell.

“A great test for us, we haven’t beaten a ranked team yet,” he concluded.

Herrera added eight points while Kristen Keeney and Hannah Pritchett finished with six points each. Christian Papineau netted five points along with four rebounds. Macye Davis scored two points while Townsend had one free throw.

Webster travels to Owensboro on Friday and then back on the road to Caldwell County next Tuesday for a boy/girl doubleheader.
