News-Sun staff report
The Lady Blue Streaks celebrated Senior Night the right way Friday night, by serving as rude hostesses to visiting Hardee.
Highlands County wasn't cordial to the Lady Wildcats this week as Lake Placid routed them on Thursday on the Dragons Senior Night, and Sebring did the same with Friday's 49-14 win.
But the Lady Dragons finished off their regular season on a slightly down note, falling to a strong Lake Wales squad.
The Avon Park girls, though, finished their season strong as Johntavia Perry outscored George Jenkins by herself.
The senior exploded for a game-high 31 points as the Lady Devils ran away from Jenkins by a 64-27 margin Thursday.
Their regular seasons complete, the three county girls teams head to their respective District Tournaments this coming week.
The District 10-4A Tournament will be held at DeSoto and will see top-seed Lake Placid play Tuesday at 5:30 p.m., taking on the winner of Monday's Mulberry, Frostproof contest.
The Red Devils play Tuesday against the host Lady Bulldogs following the Dragon game.
The Lady Streaks travel to Winter Haven for their District 9-6A Tournament and will face Kathleen Tuesday at 7 p.m.
It was more dour news for the area boys teams late in the week as both Sebring and Lake Placid took losses.
The Dragons were on the road at Okeechobee Friday and fell by a 71-63 mark.
And after giving them all they could handle a little more than a week prior, the Blue Streaks fell behind early and could never recover in an 89-65 loss to visiting Winter Haven Thursday.
With their district schedules complete, the county teams have one more week of non-district games before heading to their tournaments.
The Streaks square off with Avon Park at home Monday, host Lake Placid Thursday and travel to Hardee Friday.
After Monday's contest, the Red Devils travel to Hardee Tuesday and to Sarasota Booker Friday, while the Dragons preceded Thursday's game at Sebring with a Monday tilt at home against Vanguard and a home date with LaBelle Tuesday.
