Priceville girls wins second straight Morgan County Tournament

DANVILLE – The Priceville Lady Bulldogs won their second straight Morgan County Tournament with a 79-24 win over Falkville in the championship game this past Saturday.

“I’m very proud of the focus of our team this week,” Priceville coach Terrie Nelson said. “They brought energy and competed on every possession. They really wanted to “Repeat” so they worked hard to make that happen.”

Sophomore Leslie Hames was named the tournament MVP following her 28 points, four rebounds and three steals in the win over Falkville.

“I’m so proud of Leslie. She is a very hard worker and is a special scorer,” Nelson said. “I have enjoyed watching her hard work pay off. It was a very special night for Leslie that I know she will never forget. Her teammates and coaches are so happy for her.”

Joining her on the All-Tournament team were teammates Lauren Hames, Zoey Benson and Ashlyn Johnson.

Others on the team were Falkville’s Ellie Cate Hill, Ella and Liza Wallace, West Morgan’s Ansley Terry and Karly Terry, Brewer’s Lilly Yancey and Jacey Atkinson, as well as Danville’s Alyssa Brooks and Elisabeth Hand.
