Trigg County junior Mallory Mize set school records for free throws made (24) and attempts (30) in Trigg County's 47-28 win over Fort Campbell Thursday night at Wildcat Gym. The win was Trigg's fourth in their last eight games and fifth of the season.
Mize hit a perfect 12-of-12 free throws in the third quarter and at one point, hit 13 straight. She finished with a game-high 28 points.
The old records were 19 free throws by Karen Johnson in 1978 and 29 attempts by Johnson in 1977.
According to the KHSAA record book, Mize's 24 free throws and 30 attempts are both tied for 5th most in state history.
Trigg County trailed 11-9 after one quarter as Fort Campbell hit the offensive glass hard, grabbing 14 offensive rebounds and putting up 29 shots in the first quarter alone. Trigg County got better on the boards and only allowed five offensive boards from the Lady Falcons over the final three quarters.
For the game, Trigg County outrebounded Fort Campbell 43-36.
Eighth grader Lauren Oliver came off the bench to put up her first career double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds.
Madison Chaney grabbed 10 rebounds, and Taylor Gray added nine boards.
Angie Rangel led Fort Campbell (2-10) with seven points.
Trigg County (5-12) has won back-to-back games for the first time in two seasons. They will host Caldwell County Tuesday night. If the Lady Tigers beat UHA Saturday in the championship of the All-A Classic region tourney, that may change.
