THS sweeps Bainbridge

THOMASVILLE — Thomasville’s girls gave their fans something to cheer about in the team’s home opener Saturday night.

Hosting Class AAAAA Bainbridge, Thomasville (4-0) sprinted to an 18-4 first-quarter advantage, surged to a 33-11 halftime lead and cruised to a 48-23 win. The more experienced Lady Bulldogs capitalized off takeaways and strong three-point shooting. Thomasville drained four 3s in the first half, including three by Jaqueria Dunbar. She finished with a game-high 15 points.

“Bainbridge is young. They graduated a lot of kids last year,” Thomasville coach Thomas McAboy said. “On our part, we came out playing with a lot of energy.”

Haley McNeil added eight points for the Lady Bulldogs. Laneisha Douglass and Khabriyah Brown each added six for Thomasville.

Teena Jeffery led Bainbridge with eight points.

Thomasville’s boys also won, defeating the Bearcats 47-40.

Devonta Wyche paced the Bulldogs’ balanced attack with 11 points. Henry Abrams chipped in nine points. Derrek Dixon and Ladarius Thomas each scored seven for the Bulldogs.

Thomasville will return to the hardwood  next Saturday on the road at Cairo.

JERSEY RETIRED: Former Thomasville High standout Willie Clayton had his No. 21 jersey retired in between the girls game and boys game on Saturday. Clayton, who plays at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, was not in attendance.
