The Evans Lady Knights headed into the Thanksgiving holiday with some momentum.
Entering as hosts of the third annual Thanksgiving Classic with a 1-2 record, they came out with a 3-2 mark after a 37-32 win over South Aiken on Monday and a 46-39 win over Cedar Shoals on Tuesday.
“I feel like we have a long way to go, but we’re making steps in the right direction,” said Lady Knights’ coach Ryan Morningstar. “It helps to have leaders like Elyssa (Melton) and McKenna (Lawrence) to carry these young girls along.”
Tuesday night, Melton turned the game around at the end.
