Girls basketball: Lakeview drops opener, LCA gets 1st win

By AccessWDUN Staff

ATHENS, Ga. — The Lakeview Academy girls’ late rally fell short on Thursday night, dropping their season-opener, 56-52, to Athens Christian on the road.

It was a gallant showing by the Lady Lions (0-1) for new coach Karen Towles following a tumultuous few days after John Carrick retired just before the start of the season.

The Lady Lions trailed by as many as 15 early in the game but chipped away throughout. They eventually caught the Lady Eagles at 52 with two minutes left in the game behind the play of Kivana Bogne and Sidney Corbin.

But Lakeview was held scoreless the rest of the way as Athens Christian held on for the win.

Bogne led Lakeview with 13 points and 6 rebounds. Corbin added 12 points and 5 assists. Ashlyn Henderson had 9 points and 6 rebounds and Taliah Gaither had 6 points and pulled down a game-high 14 rebounds for the Lady Lions.

Lakeview Academy will be back in action again on Monday at home against Banks County.


The Lady Lightning got their first win of the year at home on Thursday.

LCA (1-3) opened the game with an 8-0 run and never trailed.

Senior Camille Hoffmann had a huge night with 24 points and 17 rebounds to lead the way. Sophomore Ellie Roberts added 21 points and 10 rebounds for the Lady Lightning.

Eighth-grader Adelyn Gough chipped in 13 points and grabbed 7 boards for LCA.
