Sonoraville exploded for 34 points in the first quarter which was good enough for a 28-point advantage after the period as the coasted to a region win at home, 69-28, over Coahulla Creek.

“We always start with our full-court press and see what happens,” said Sonoraville coach Stephanie Caudell. “It seems to get us going and playing at a good pace, and then we just go from there.”

Carrie Cheeks led the Lady Phoenix (18-1, 8-0) with 22 points, 16 of which came in the first quarter. Payton Smith had 15 of her own, and Jennilee Gentry added eight.

Caudell said having such good inside and outside balance is a tremendous asset for her team.

“I think anytime you have a good point guard that’s huge for the team,” said Caudell of Smith. “And then you add an inside presence like Carrie and Jennilee, it makes you even better.”

The Lady Phoenix, who sit atop the Region 5-AAA standings above Cartersville by one game, have now won every region game by at least 15 points. Caudell said that gives her a little bit of concern not being in very many close games.

“I don’t mind a few where everyone gets in the game,” said Caudell. “But I wish we would have a few close ones to get us ready for those situations when they come in big games.”

Sonoraville, which has won nine in a row, visit Cartersville on Tuesday.
