ROSEDALE — The West Bolivar Lady Eagles brought their A-game against the South Delta Lady Bulldogs as they won 54-25 in Region 3-2A action here Saturday.
The Lady Eagles improved to 11-12 with a 4-2 mark in the region.
“Our region is made up of tough and proven teams,” Lady Eagles head coach Jordan Goins said. “There is not a night off in our region. We’re taking it one game at a time, making sure that we don’t overlook anyone. I know my girls will challenge and compete each night from the first buzzer to the last. It’s all about getting better each day.”
Shizeria Edwards scored 14 points with three steals to lead West Bolivar, followed by Meljanique Jackson with 10 points and 13 rebounds and Keanna Lewis with nine points.
In the boys game, the Eagles played hard but came up a little short as they lost to the South Delta Bulldogs 51-48 in Region 3-2A action Saturday.
West Bolivar fell to 10-13 with a 1-5 mark in the region. “We’ve got to be more aggressive with getting to the basket and shooting more free throw,” Eagles head coach Cedric Armstrong said. “The other night we just shot seven free throws, and we had some turnovers from some underclassmen.”
Jakari Christmas scored 10 points with seven rebounds, and Kirzerrion Lewis scored 10 points and six rebounds to lead the Eagles.
Both West Bolivar teams will be back in action on Tuesday when they host O’Bannon in another region game in Rosedale. The girls will start first at 6 p.m., followed by the boys game.
