Devilettes First Place
Celeste girls moved into first place in the District last week with wins over Blue Ridge and Trenton.
In the Blue Ridge game Celeste won 57 to 51 with Celeste leading 16-7 1st quarter and 30-17 half. Blue Ridge rallied in 4th quarter after Celeste got in foul trouble. Twenty-two fouls were called on Celeste and 7 on Blue Ridge.
Martha Taylor with feeds from Tammy Spoonemore scored the first 10 points. Cindy Speir and Martha Taylor were high with 24 and 17 points.
At Celeste Friday night the Blue Devilettes started strong and had a 41 to 11 halftime lead with Trenton. With good rebounding by Tammy Spoonemore and Martha Taylor and good lead passes from Cheryl Waters to Cindy Speir Celeste built their quick lead. Ruth Hall shot well in the 1st quarter from the outside and Cindy Speir ended the night with 42 points.
Celeste had a battle with Savoy Tuesday night and a win there would almost wrap it up; a loss would end in a tie in the District.
