Murfreesboro, Tenn. (WVLT)-- The Lady Highlanders and the G-P student body was representing well at the MTSU Murphy Center on Friday. The players wore T-Shirts saying Mountain Tough and those in blue and gold certainly believed they
could get the job done.
However, the Lady Firebirds also came to play building a large lead in the 2nd quarter. Pearl Cohn would go on a 13-0 run to build a 17 point lead, but the Lady Highlanders would rally!
Trailing 51-29 with a little over 6-minutes to play, G-P would mount a furious charge outscoring the Firebirds 28-12 down the stretch. However, that rally would fall short . Shelby Moore led Gatlinburg-Pittman with 13 points. Qua Hines finished with 12 while Rylie Patterson and Ivy Bales added 10 apiece.
G-P closes out a memorable season at 29-5. Pearl Cohn advances to face Upperman for the Class-AA title on Saturday.
