CENTRAL ALABAMA SCOREBOARD OFFICE – The Edgewood Academy Lady Wildcats have been tearing through competition and have ended the year on a 5-1 (9-4 overall) run.

“Based on the pre-season goals, we are trending towards where we want to be when get into region play,” said Jason Fischer, coach of the Lady Wildcats.

Edgewood – who started the year 4-3) with wins over Coosa Valley (52-16), Macon East (67-26), Fort Dale (51-48) and Lowndes (50-28). After dropping a 51-48 decision to Glenwood, the Wildcats rattled off wins over Evangel Christian (Montgomery), Hooper, Evangel (Homeschool / Alabaster), Lakeside School and Evangel Christian (Montgomery) and capped the 2021 half of the season against Abbeville Christian.

Fischer: “When we made our schedule, I wanted us to be tested early so that we are ready for region play after Christmas and we are building on that each game we play. The rest of our schedule does not get any easier but I feel we will continue to build and grow as a team.”

Hopefully the Lady Wildcats have their sneakers laced up when they hit the court in 2022 because it’s a full-on sprint through the month of January:

  • ·         1/3     AT       Coosa Valley
  • ·         1/4     HOST Lee-Scott
  • ·         1/6     HOST Autauga (R)
  • ·         1/10   HOST Lowndes
  • ·         1/11   AT       Cornerstone Christian (R)
  • ·         1/13   HOST Hooper (R)
  • ·         1/18   HOST Autauga (R)
  • ·         1/20   AT       Hooper (R)
  • ·         1/24   AT       Evangel (Alabaster)
  • ·         1/25   HOST Cornerstone Christian (R)
  • ·         1/27   HOST Evangel Christian (Montgomery)

The Lady Wildcats – who have scored points in bunches this season – are led by sophomore Lindsey Brown who is averaging just shy of 21 points per game and eight rebounds. Madison Martin is leading the defense with around nine rebounds per game.

Fischer: “Lindsey has been the leader for us on the court at practice and in games.”

Brown shot her way into the Edgewood record books, scoring her 1,000th point in the Wildcats 46-43 loss to the Lakeside in Eufuala. She finished the night scoring more than half of the team’s points (23) and was seconded by Emma Weldon (13 points) who drained a trio of triples in the third quarter.
