The Carrollton Lady Warriors basketball team ended an excellent regular season last week by splitting two games.

They finish with a record of 17-5 overall and in third place in the Northeastern Buckeye Conference with an 11-3 mark.

West Branch and Louisville shared the NBC title.

Last Wednesday night, prior to the start of the Lady Warriors 57-50 win over the visiting Minerva, seniors Taylor Lowdermilk and Annabel Vernier were honored for their years of dedication to the Carrollton girls basketball program.

The win avenged an earlier loss to the Lions at Minerva.

The Warriors took control early and led 17-9 after the opening period, 26-19 at halftime and 42-38 going into the final eight minutes of play.

Lowdermilk paced the Warriors with 17 points, while sophomore Rachel Devine added 10 points. Sophomore Savana Lowery added nine points and nine rebounds.

Carrollton was 24-of-54 from the floor and 8-of-15 from the line. They finished with 32 rebounds and 23 turnovers.

Senior Lorin Clark led the Lions with 17 points, while Morgan Preston added seven points and five rebounds.

From the floor, the Lions hit 17-of-63 action shots and 11-of-17 free throws. They had 23 rebounds and 17 turnovers.

In the junior varsity game, the Warriors led from start to finish. They were up 8-6 after the first quarter, 20-12 at the half and 31-20 at the end of three quarters. Carrollton won 33-30.

Sophomore Abbey Wilson led the way with 12 points and Morgan Hepner had seven points.

Last Saturday, the Warriors ended their regular season at home against North Canton Hoover.

The Vikings jumped out to a 28-11 first quarter lead and then cruised to a 71-43 win over the Lady Warriors.

Lowdermilk led the Warriors with nine points.

Kelsey Lensman led the Vikings with a career-high 23 points.

Carrollton was to begin tournament play Wednesday night at the Union Local Division II sectional against Beaver Local.

Carrollton is seeded No. 1 and playing in the top bracket, while Minerva got the No. 2 seed and is in the lower bracket.

If victorious, the Warriors will play either Steubenville or East Liverpool in the sectional championship next Tuesday at 6 p.m. The winner will advance to the Zanesville District.

Minerva will play at 8 p.m. Thursday night against either Buckeye Local or Edison Local.
