From the start of the second quarter until the end of the game, Jones County almost matched defending state champion Fayette County point for point.

The problem was the first quarter, when the Lady Tigers raced out to an 18-2 lead. The Lady ’Hounds were unable to make up that deficit, and Fayette County finished with a 61-45 victory in the second round of the Region 3-AAAA Tournament last Wednesday in Fayetteville to end Jones County’s season.

The Lady ’Hounds finished with a 13-13 record.

The Lady Tigers (23-5) went on to down Woodland 47-45 in the semifinals and Alcovy 50-39 in the championship game to win the region title.

Alcovy (25-3) downed Fayetteville (25-2) 73-60 in the boys’ championship game.

Heather Rushin, who missed Jones County’s first round game with a separated shoulder suffered in the final regular season game, returned to hit five 3-pointers and lead the Lady ’Hounds with 15 points, and fellow junior Jessica Solomon added 12 points. Seniors Shermaine Pinkard scored 8 points and Chavon Lloyd added 6.
