BUNN — Improvement is expected from the Southern Nash High varsity girls basketball team in 2017-18.
And indications were the expectations are well-founded in Thursday night’s season opener on the road that saw the Ladybirds of the 3-A Big East Conference drop a 50-40 decision to 2-A Bunn.
Southern Nash fell behind 19-10 after the opening quarter and experienced limited success in attempting to cut into the deficit the rest of the way. The Ladybirds were outscored 31-30 in the last three quarters.
Junior Stacie Winner topped Southern Nash’s scoring with 14 points. Sophomore Rayna Bailey and senior Lydia Ruffin each netted seven.
Other Southern Nash scorers: Shontell Richardson 6, Jalisa Williams 2 and Aaliyah Newkirk 2.
