Central girls rout Randleman


The Central Davidson girls seem to be finding their own mojo right now, too.

The Spartans, coming off Tuesday’s 63-39 drubbing of East Davidson, had little trouble dissecting Randleman 67-24 Wednesday night.

“We wanted to execute tonight,” said Kevin Hudson. “We didn’t shoot the ball as well as I’d hoped, but we got the ball where I wanted it to go. I’m pleased.”

The Spartans turned to McKenzie Burkhart early and Burkhart responded with 10 of her 16 total points coming in the first half.

By intermission, the Spartans were coasting with a 37-11 lead.

Hudson likes where his team, now 9-5 overall, is at this point in the season.

“We have a little bit more of a team feel to it when we get four or five girls in double figures as opposed to one or two,” said Hudson. “We weren’t getting everybody in the mix early, but now we are and it makes it a little easier for us on big game nights.

“The way we’re playing right now is distributing the basketball,” said Hudson. “Now, you just can’t focus on Paige (Chavis). You can’t just focus on Jordan (Chavis). Young just can’t focus on Chandler (Young). Because if you do that, McKenzie will step up. Skylar (Briggs) will step up. Kelsey (Johnson) and Taylor (Shoaf) will step up.

“This is really what I expected us to do by this point in the season.”

In addition to Burkhart, Young ended up with 12 points, Paige Chavis had 11 and Jordan Chavis scored 10.

Central welcomes Lexington on Friday night in what is shaping up to be an interesting doubleheader.
