Cabot South downs Lady Hornets to keep title hopes alive


CABOT — The Bryant Lady Hornets freshman basketball team has been working to try to improve at attacking a zone defense. But they hadn’t been working on it against a team with the length and ball-hawking ability of the Cabot South Lady Panthers, one of the top teams in the Central Arkansas Junior High Conference.

The Lady Panthers forced 11 turnovers in the first quarter while rolling out to a 15-0 lead. Macey Jaramillo finally broke the ice for Bryant with 1:12 left in the period, hitting a 3-pointer.

Cabot South opened the second period with a 7-2 run interrupted only by two free throws from Destiny Martin, making it a 22-4 advantage on the way to a 34-16 win.
