The Tattnall County Lady Warriors traveled to Dahlonega on Saturday, March 26, 2022, and were defeated, 90-30, by the number 1 ranked Lumpkin County Lady Indians. This was a Sweet Sixteen match-up in the Class AAA Tournament.
Lumpkin played smothering defense and hit a barrage of three pointers and outside shots to open up a 24-5 first-quarter lead. In the second period, Tattnall County was unable to slow down the great shooters of Lumpkin County, and the Lady Indians led commandingly, 48-14, at the half. The same trend continued throughout the second half, and Lumpkin breezed to a 90-30 win.
Senior guard Tamia Brown led Tattnall County with 13 points, Macy Ansell had 7 points, Janayiah Prigeon added 6 points, Dynashia Jinks had 3 points, and Kandayce Carswell had 1 point.
The Lady Warriors finished the season with an 18-8 record, 7-1 in the Region. The Lady Warriors will lose six seniors off this year’s team to graduation this year. These young ladies have all contributed to the great success of the Lady Warriors’ basketball program for the past four years. Their leadership and skills on and off the court will be sorely missed by the Warrior Nation. Although these girls saw their careers end with a loss in the State Tournament, they are all winners.
Congratulations are extended on a remarkable run the past four years. Here is a glimpse of some of their accomplishments.
