Never judge the fight in a team by the ugliness of its record. Because Drew didn’t fall into that trap, it survived a frenetic Friday finish for a 51-49 victory at Stockbridge.
North Clayton entered its game against Forest Park in a three-way tie with Lovejoy and Jonesboro for the lead in Region 4-AAAA. With that in mind, a victory was key for the Eagles to keep pace in the tight region race.
Lovejoy looked as if it was still having a hangover from its loss to North Clayton earlier this week when the Lady Wildcats got behind in their game against Morrow.
Tough losses have a way of setting the tone for an entire season.
Precious Person and Lakiah Sims each scored 20 points to led Drew to a 63-49 Region 4-AAA win at Stockbridge on Friday.
