Since their 50-39 win over Comanche JV in the Stephens County tournament, the Wayne Lady Bulldogs have been riding a five game win streak, bringing their record to 10-7.
“Their legs are tired, but these girls have found ways to win,” head coach Bill Burnett said.
With a different high scorer in each of their last three games, each Lady Bulldog has contributed in one way or another.
“Each girl found a way to help out whether by scoring or by defense or by getting the ball to the right person at the right time.”
On Saturday, Wayne eked out the two-point, 44-42, win over Apache.
Eight Lady Bulldogs scored in the win, including nine points for Daliyah Fuentes and Kaylee Madden.
In Friday’s 52-41 win over Konawa, the Lady Bulldogs played tough in the second half, to pull out the 11-point win.
Madden had 18 in the win and McKenzie Fisher had 14. Haylee Durrence and Lorensa Martinez each added eight.
Last Tuesday Wayne was in Dibble where they beat the Lady Demons, 43-33.
The Lady Bulldogs had another slow start, scoring just nine points through the first two quarters.
But, the nets heated up in the second half when they put up 34 points to Dibble’s 16.
Martinez led the way for Wayne with 17 points in the win.
Burnett and his Lady Bulldogs hosted Wynnewood Tuesday night then are scheduled to host Maud Friday for Senior Night.
Despite two losses for the Wayne Bulldogs last week, head coach Jackson Embry is pleased with his team’s toughness
“We played hard all week but we have to work harder to deepen our bench.
“We’ve struggled to put four quarters together,” Embry said.
Last Tuesday night was a 65-57 loss at Dibble.
“The guys worked hard but the wheels just fell off.
“We had the lead but could not finish. I’m proud of them for battling through adversity,” Embry said.
Three Bulldogs were in double figures including Kaleb Madden with 15, Jaxon Dill with 14 and Andy Lee with 13.
Led by Kaleb Madden’s career-high 33 points, Wayne got a 54-42 win over Konawa.
Ethan Mullins added 11.
“Our guards played really well against Konawa. And our guys down low did great. Their post guys were held to just eight points,” Embry said.
The coach pointed out the tough play of Lee as well as sophomore Wyatt Webster and freshman Adolfo Vasquez.
To round out their week, Wayne hosted Apache on Satruday, but fell to the run-and-gun offense, 64-46.
“The score looks like we lost big, but it was a one or two possession game through three quarters,” Embry said.
“They pulled away in the fourth.”
Once again three Bulldogs had double figure scoring. Mullins led the way with 15, Dill added 12 and Madden had 10.
Wayne was back on the court Tuesday night hosting a tough Wynnewood team.
Friday is Senior Night when Wayne will host Maud with a 6:30 p.m. tip.
