Friday Night Around UC Sports Nation: Cookeville Goes Undefeated

The Cookeville Lady Cavaliers completed an undefeated regular season Friday night, as they routed visiting District 9-4A foe, Wilson Central, 82-33. Cassie Gallagher led four Lady Cavs in double figures, and a balanced overall offensive attack, with 15 points. Chay Cunningham added 14, as Cookeville finishes the regular season 26-0. The Lady Cavs now prepare for the District 9-4A Tournament, which will be played this upcoming week at Green Hill High School.

Meanwhile, the Cavaliers closed out the regular season with their third consecutive district win and their fourth in the last five games, with a 60-55 win over the Wildcats. DJ Potts Heard scored 20 points and grabbed six rebounds for the Cavaliers (15-13, 5-3 District), who finish third in District 9-4A.

The Cumberland County Lady Jets kept their hopes alive for the District 7-3A Regular Season Championship with a 65-48 victory at White County, Friday night. Cumberland County (15-10, 8-3) will host the Warriorettes (21-5, 9-2) tonight in the regular season finale for both teams. A White County win gives the Warriorettes the outright district title. A Lady Jets win would set up a three-way tie between Cummberland County, White County and Livingston Academy.

Meanwhile, the Stone Memorial Panthers got 17 points from Cade Capps to defeat visiting Livingston Academy, 59-54, and claim the boys’ District 7-3A Regular Season Championship. Stone Memorial (17-9, 9-3) earns a first-round tournament bye and an automatic bid into the Region Tournament. Livingston Academy (13-13, 6-6) lost four straight to close out the regular season.
