Lady Titans Back in District Champtionship
The Lady Titans advanced to the 46th District finals as they have every year since the merger, defeating the Lady Jaguars of East Jessamine, 68-21.
Mercer’s offense struggled early in the game hitting only one field goal in the first six minutes of the opening quarter. Despite their poor shooting, tough defense helped Mercer hold onto a 6-0 lead with 3:39 remaining in the quarter.
“It’s always important to get off to a good start, but it’s a 32 minute game,” said Mercer head coach Chris Souder. “We are a good team defensively, that’s what we’ve relied on all year so the not scoring early doesn’t bother me.”
