Even though the Lady Bulldogs of Thomson High School continue to show signs of improvement as a team, the change isn't as evident in the win column.
Last week was another tough time for them, as they lost a pair of region games to Harlem and Cross Creek.
In the game against the Harlem Lady Bulldogs, which was played at the Dog House in Thomson, Harlem won 65-55 in a game that was much closer than the score ended up being. Three days later, they traveled to Augusta where they lost to Cross Creek's Lady Razorbacks, 44-38.
For Thomson Head Coach Eric Rogers, it's back to the drawing board with his team, as they prepare for four region encounters during the next several days. They were to have played host to Washington County's Lady Golden Hawks on Tuesday. This Friday night, the Lady Bulldogs will travel to Augusta and play Butler. The following week on Jan. 22, Thomson will host the Lady Spartans of Glenn Hills. On Jan. 25, Thomson will play two more games on the road - Harlem and Greene County on Jan. 26.
The Lady Bulldogs won't be back home for a game until Jan. 29 when they play host to Cross Creek in a rematch.
In the game against Harlem, Thomson was led by sophomore Natasha Ballard with 17 points. Chiquita Kendrick and Brianna Hart each scored 10 points.
Meanwhile, in the game against Cross Creek, the Lady Bulldogs were led in scoring by Andrea Culpepper, who had 10 points. She was followed by Etoryia Anderson with 9, LaQuinta Fort, 8, Natasha Ballard, 8 and Zakia Wilson, 3 points, respectively.
The Lady Bulldogs were 11-of-16 from the free-throw line - another big team improvement.
