Walnut– TCPS travelled to Walnut to take on Waterloo (AL) at the Sikes Anderson Lyles Memorial Tournament on Saturday and came away with a pair of wins.
The Lady Eagles jumped out to a 16-3 first quarter advantage and led 30-5 at halftime en route to a 49-13 victory.
“We were able to work on some things today and get some girls some additional playing time. I think those players getting minutes will benefit us later in the season,” TCPS head coach Ron Nichols said of the lopsided victory.
Caroline Upchurch led with 18 points and shot 8 of 9 from the field. Ainsley Hale added 11 points.
The win moved the Lady Eagles to 11-2 on the season.
In boys action, the Eagles moved to 7-7 on the season with a 68-54 victory over Waterloo.
After falling behind 26-19 after the first quarter, TCPS outscored the 49-28 the rest of the way including a 32-17 advantage in the 2nd half to take the win.
Jackson Mills led with 21 points. Alex Lipscomb added 19.
TCPS is back in action Friday against Kossuth.
