Lady Indians win Lindsay tournament

by Todd Brooks

The last time the Comanche girls’ basketball team won the Charles K. Heatly Classic in Lindsay was 2018.

They had few problems winning it in 2022 as the Lady Indians picked up double-digit wins over the Lindsay JV, Lone Grove, and Byng teams over the course of three days.

Gracee Miller was named the tournament MVP, while Caity Blair and Kenley Lemons made the all-tournament team.

After giving up 16 points in the first quarter and falling behind, 16-10, the Lady Indians held Byng to just 15 points over the final three quarters, including seven in the second half, to pull away for the win.

The key of the game was Comanche outscoring the Lady Pirates, 21-8 in the second quarter. Kynli Morris led the way for Comanche with eight points in the quarter.

Leading scorers for Comanche were: Gracee Miller, 19; Kynli Morris, 10; Kenley Lemons, 6; Caity Blair, 4; Breelie Garlinger, 4; Kylie Roden, 3; Kamrey Rendon, 3; and Bri Keeling, 2.

Lone Grove 51

The Lady Longhorns put a scare into Comanche in the third quarter when the Lady Indians looked to have the game well in hand with a 35-21 halftime lead.

Lone Grove, though, would get hot from behind the arc in the third quarter, knocking down five three-pointers in the quarter to cut the lead to 47-45 heading to the final quarter.

The Lady Indians, however, would get things sorted out in the fourth quarter and pull away for the win.

Leading scorers for Comanche were: Bri Keeling, 17; Gracee Miller, 15; Kenley Lemons, 14; Caity Blair, 7; Kylie Roden, 6; and Kynli Morris, 5.
