Season ends in second round

After winning the first round of the state championship tournament, the Lady Yellow Jackets of Hayesville were rewarded with another long road trip as they headed to Ronda to face the East Wilkes Lady Cardinals. Facing two tough opponents and enduring two long-distance road trips in three days proved to be too much for the Lady Jackets as they fell 51-34, ending their season.

Hayesville’s continuing struggle with a lack of offensive production was again the Achille’s heel for the Lady Jackets against East Wilkes. The Lady Cardinals opened the game with 10 first-quarter points, doubling the 5 put on the board by Hayesville.
