Iota Lady Dogs cruise past Catholic High
Any thoughts of an upset bid in Iota went out the window quickly Monday for Class 2A’s No. 32-seeded Catholic High of New Iberia.
No. 1 seed Iota went on an 18-0 run to start the game and never looked back in a dominating 73-18 victory over the Lady Panthers.
“We came out with a lot of intensity and the game was over pretty quick,” said Iota coach Stan Baggett, whose team will host No. 16 Sterlington on Thursday. “We came out with a lot of energy and that was good but it’s going to be a lot more of a challenge from here on out.”
Iota’s Allison Baggett scored 22 of her game-high 24 points in the first half as the Lady Dogs took a 40-9 lead into the intermission.
Iota’s reserves played the majority of the second half and outscored the Lady Panthers 33-9.
Anna Lege hit three of Iota’s nine 3-pointers and finished with nine points. Caroline Hebert added seven points; Jillian Boone and Taylor Deville each scored six; Dominiqua Thomas had four; and Paige Soirrez had three. Adalie Wriborg, McKenzie Armand, Mallory Faul, Brittany Johnson, Madison Smith, Sydney Hebert and Clarissa Waldrep rounded out the scoring with two points each.
In other girls’ playoff action, Rayne fell to No. 2 seed Albany, 73-29; Midland lost to No. 2 seed Fairview, 78-22; and Northside Christian was eliminated from the Class C playoffs by No. 9 Reeves, 67-35.
