Lady Yoe Basketball opens new season

The Cameron girls basketball program got their season underway last week.  The ladies will be playing in numerous non-district contests and tournaments over the next several weeks in preparation for the start of 20-3A league action.


Cameron played their first regular season game on the road at Gatesville on Saturday.  It was a rough go of it for the ladies in their first outing, falling 72-21.  Leading scorers were Qua Workman with eight points and Terryn Adams with five.  The JV also fell, 55-7. 


The ladies played their home opener on Tuesday from Yoe Gym against the Holland Lady Hornets.  Cameron fell behind after the first period, 16-5, but managed to stay competitive throughout the rest of the night in a 42-29 loss.


Early on, Cameron had more turnovers than points scored.  That all changed in the second as Workman went on a tear, scoring eight points, including one three-point bucket.  Adams also had four points in the second to help close the gap to 27-18 at the half.


The third ended with the same nine-point deficit at 34-25.  Lauren Leftwich hit the big three in the period for Cameron.  The ladies could only muster four points down the stretch.


Workman and Leftwich each had 10 points while Adams and Marley Spink finished with four.  With the loss, the ladies fall to 0-2 on the young season.  The JV lost 42-11 to fall to 0-2.
