The Licking Lady Wildcats competed in the annual Mansfield tournament last week.

In the first round, the Lady ’Cats faced Houston. Licking used solid half-court defense to keep Houston off balance throughout the contest and cruised to a 60 to 29 victory.

The Lady ’Cats faced a big and athletic Springfield Catholic team in the semi-finals. Licking never got going offensively in the first half and trailed 23-7 at halftime. Licking switched defenses and cut the lead all the way back to 3 before late free throws sealed the win for the Lady Irish. The Lady ’Cats lost 36-30.

The final day matched Licking against Forsyth. The Lady ’Cats executed the game plan, but a massive rebounding difference allowed Forsyth to stay close at the break, 25-20. Forsyth scored the first 6 points of the third quarter to take a lead, but after a timeout, the ’Cats went on a 14-2 run to take back control. Licking cruised to a 45-34 third place victory.

Senior Hannah Medlock and junior Allie Hock were named to the All Tournament team.
