Girls Basketball Downed at George Walton 47-15

MONROE, Ga. – The FPD offense never got into a rhythm as the George Walton Academy Lady Bulldogs handed the Lady Vikings (1-1) their first loss of the 2014-15 season, a 47-15 decision at the Nicholson Center on Friday night, Dec. 5.

FPD trailed 14-4 at the end of the first quarter and 22-14 at halftime.

But a dismal third quarter ended up dooming the Lady Vikings. FPD failed to score while allowing the Lady Bulldogs (2-0) to drop in 17 points to essentially put the game away.

FPD was led in scoring by the four points each of Kate Patterson and Megan Ingram. Tristan Shelnutt posted a game-high 10 points for the Lady Bulldogs while Elizabeth White and Zalandria Hill chipped in with nine points each.

The Bulldogs attempted 17 free-throws in the contest, making 11. FPD, meanwhile, was 1-for-2 from the charity stripe on the night.

The Lady Vikings are back in action Tuesday night, Dec. 9, traveling to Schley County High School for a non-region game at 6 p.m.

FPD split its game with the Lady Wildcats last season. Schley County took down the Lady Vikings 49-46 in Ellaville on Dec. 21. FPD returned the favor on Jan. 25 with a 61-33 victory at the Middlebrooks Athletic Center.

The First Presbyterian Day School Department of Athletics strives to build the student athlete both in the playing arena and the classroom while upholding the school’s mission statement to educate and equip students to change the world for God’s glory.
