The East Jessamine High girls got off to a strong start in the Berea Holiday Classic. The Jaguars split the first two games of the tournament, falling to Jackson County by just six, 60-54 and winning big, 65-43 over Harlan.
But the team struggled in the next two games, falling to hot-shooting Somerset 48-31 and dropping a 42-32 decision to Bryan Station last Saturday.
The Bryan Station game proved to be a very physical one and the Jaguars struggled against the bigger, more athletic Bryan Station club. But the team struggled shooting as well.
"We get into those kind of games and we don't fare well," Coach Ralph Sallee said. "I thought that hurt us. We shot 9-for-54. We're struggling with our shooting right now."
