Sampson Middle’s girls got back in the win column Monday in a road victory over Elizabethtown Middle. Final score was 32-17.

Coach Jamie Harper praised her young Dark Horse squad for their play, noting that she saw a return of their confidence when they stepped on the court Monday.

“Overall, they played a good game,” Harper said. “They made a real comeback after the game with Midway. I saw a lot more confidence, and they were playing like the girls can play.”

Sampson jumped out to an early 14-1 lead and never looked back, putting great effort into their play. At the half, the middle school Horses were up 19-3 and by the end of the third period they had a decisive 28-13 advantage.”

“We got some good help from our bench. I could see a lot of promise out there on the court, a lot of signs of good things to come from all of our girls,” the coach attested.

Leading scorers for Sampson Monday were Terri Boone, 13; Edye Carr, 8; Ashlyn Williams, 5; Talona Savage, 3; Crystal Barbour, 2; and Miriah Boone Whitted, 1.
