JACKSON Don't be surprised if the Lady Hornets of Lake and the Lady Hawks of Myrtle cross paths again in the not-too-distant future in the Class 1A state basketball tournament.
When they do, it'll be tough to match Saturday night's game for thrills.
Both teams had only one senior on their respective roster for Saturday's state championship contest at the Mississippi Coliseum which Lake won 58-57.
Price, a 5-foot-8 sophomore, had 28 points for Myrtle, 14 of which came in the fourth quarter.
For Lake, the lone senior was 5-foot-8 Odena Cox. She had six points and ran the Lady Hornets' offense well from her point guard position.
Myrtle's only senior was 5-foot-6 Priscilla Berry who had 18 points.
The two teams are a lot alike as both entered Saturday's 1A state championship contest with 33-3 records.
Myrtle also didn't have Ingersoll's good luck M&M tie which has yet to see a Lady Hornet defeat after he bought it before the finals of the Scott County Tournament. He's worn it to every big game since.
