Giltner's Lockmon wins 300th

The D2 No. 1 Giltner Lady Hornets went into Kenesaw Tuesday night with a perfect 12-0 record on the season, and after a 55-38 win against the Blue Devils, coach Nancy Lockmon reached

her 300th win of her career.

"I knew it could happen this year, but I didn't know it would happen in twelve games," Lockmon said after the win. "It goes back to having a lot of good players, a lot of good assistant coaches helping me out and maybe that I'm getting old." Lockmon's coaching career started in Staurt. She said she didn't remember No. 100, but remembered No. 200 happening in Giltner. The Lady Hornets jumped out to a 6-0 lead thanks to buckets by seniors Baily Craig, Shelby Hinrichs and junior Taylor Rhoades and held a 13-9 lead to start the second quarter. Kenesaw (5-8) used perimiter shooting as their main offensive weapon against the top team in D2 and even cut the Giltner led to 15-14 midway through the quarter. But the Lady Hornets ended the second quarter in style thanks to two good plays from freshman Reagan Janzen. One play featured a great post feed to junior Chainey Tompkin for a score while in the other play, Janzen scored a bucket on her own and converted on the free-throw after getting fouled to help her team hold a 27-18 lead at halftime. Giltner cruised to a 55-38 win with Hinrichs leading the offense with 14 points from her point guard position while Craig had 12. Both Rhoades and Tompkin had nine.
