The White County Warriorettes finished off a successful District Tournament run with an 84-68 over Rhea County on Monday in the District Championship.
Rhea County battled a flurry of threes from White County early, and they took a nine-point lead at one point in the first half. The Warriorettes didn’t panic however, and they used a big first-half from Gracie Dodgen to take a two-point lead of their own into the first half break.
Rhea took control back of the game near the end of the third, as they held a one-point lead heading into the decisive final frame. White County’s offense exploded in the fourth quarter, and out-scored Rhea County 30-14 to take home the District Championship.
Dodgen led the way for White with 23 points, while Julia Curtis added 15 of her own. Kanden Reeves scored 14 points and dished eight assists, while Nia Powers scored 13 points off the bench.
