WARRENTON, Ga. -- Candice Warthen continues to have a terrific basketball season at Warren County High School.
Recently, the senior guard eclipsed the 2,000-points plateau.
Her biggest interest these days is finding ways to help her team win.
First-year head coach George Lee said Warthen's leadership on the court is equally as important as her scoring ability.
"She is a complete player," Lee said during a recent interview. "She plays with the kind of intensity that makes the game fun to watch."
In a game played between the Lady Screaming Devils and Greene County Lady Tigers last Friday night, Warthen scored 26 points. Her performance helped Warren County defeat Greene County 68-44.
The victory lifted the Lady Screaming Devils' overall record to 7-4 on the season.
Two big periods, the second and third, provided for the comfortable margin of victory that Warren County received. In the second, the Lady Screaming Devils scored 23 points. And they returned in the third period to score 21, while limiting the Lady Tigers to a mere four points during that eight-minute span.
Warthen also did a fine job rebounding and playing defense. Warthen recently signed a national letter of intent to play for the University of Arizona.
Other Warren County players contributing to the wi included: Tykesia Johnson, 11, Temeka Harris, 5, Tynisha Harris, 9, Mykeia Carter, 4, Tianca Evans, 4, Sondrea Harden, 7 and Lakerria Williams, 2.
