The Gordon Lee Lady Trojans overcame some early foul trouble and some hot first-half shooting by Polk County’s Wildkittens to claim third-place in the Battle of the States Tournament in Towns County on Saturday with a 51-45 victory.

Gordon Lee trailed 26-24 at halftime and 36-33 after three quarters, but turned up the defense in the fourth quarter against Polk County point guard Isabella Liner. After scoring 14 points in the first three quarters, Liner was held to just two points over the final eight minutes.

The Wildkittens had no answer for Lady Trojan center Katelyn Lee, who scored a game-high 26 points and pulled down 10 rebounds to lead her team to the win. Freshman guard Sarah Meadows continued to impress with 17 points, while Avrie Weldon dropped in 10.

Lee was later named to the All-Tournament Team.

Gordon Lee (7-3) will face LFO on Monday at 3 p.m. in the Phoenix Classic at Sonoraville High School before jumping into subregion play at Excel Christian next Saturday at 2 p.m.
