The Trigg County Lady Cats wouldn’t be denied on Senior Night. Despite playing rival Caldwell County in the midst of a 30-plus game losing streak that dated back to the 1990s, Trigg County persevered. Trigg County hadn’t defeated Caldwell County since 1994. Until Friday night. In come-from-behind fashion, Trigg County doubled up Caldwell County 14-7 in the fourth quarter on Friday – Senior Night. The strong late effort pushed Trigg County over the top for an impressive 51-49 district win.

Trigg County won after trailing at the conclusion of the first and third quarters. Caldwell County owned a 19-14 advantage at the end of the first period. Trigg County, however, led 28-25 at the break.

“This was definitely a Senior Night to be remembered,” said Trigg County Coach Amy Breckel. “All of the girls stepped up their performance in this game against Caldwell. Emotions were high and it showed early at the tip as Caldwell set their press and created too many turnovers and got up 16-4. After a timeout to calm the girls down and focus them in on the job at hand, we were able to come out on a 10-1 run.”

Senior Dori Sheehan helped Trigg County in the 10-1 run, scoring two big baskets to help cut the lead. Senior Trinity Wortham was able to hit three three pointers in the first half to also help Trigg County battle back.

The last senior to play for Trigg County was Janada Acree, who finished with a double-double of 22 points and 11 rebounds.
