Grenada High School girls’ basketball Coach Ken Ross didn’t know what to expect from his girls’ team in the regular season finale at home against DeSoto Central.
The reason for concern was the missing of two starters, Dyaneice Woodall and Tania Young. Woodall was left out of the lineup due to an ankle sprain suffered at North Panola. Young missed some school earlier in the week due to sickness. Those two players have combined for 25 points a game. It meant that Ross would have to get something productive minutes from his young players.
He got just that as Grenada built a double-digit lead and held off a late rally from the Lady Jaguars to win a 50-39 decision.
On the boys’ side, Grenada trailed the Jaguars 17-15 after one period. DeSoto Central used a 30-12 second period and went on to a 75-44 victory.
