In a heated battle, Princeton had little problem taking care of business against their arch rivals Rosewood.
The Bulldogs crushed the Eagles 62-22 in the girls matchup on Tuesday. Meredith Wooten’s 14 points led all scorers and she was a dynamo on both ends of the floor.
“We did really well on defense,” the senior guard said after the game. “I thought we hit our shots for the most part and we played as a team.”
Freshman forward Hailey Tart added 12 points and junior forward LeOnna Nelson chipped in with 11. Rosewood senior guard Arzhane Dozier led the Eagles with five points.
In the boys game, Princeton sprinted out to a big lead and never looked back in a 69-50 victory. The Bulldogs moved into sole possession of the top spot in the conference with this victory. With Jaheim Taylor out due to a wrist injury, it was his younger brother Aden who stepped up in his first varsity start.
“We just want to keep going for a championship,” the freshman guard said after his 14 point effort. “That’s our ultimate goal and to get there, we just have to keep making shots and play good defense.”
Sophomore guard Nayshin Waller also had 14 to pace the Bulldogs. Ethan Potts and Tyrese Whitley each had double figure scoring with 11 and 10 respectively. Junior guard Roderick Benjamin led all scorers with 21.
Princeton travels to Union Friday while Rosewood hosts Hobbton in Carolina 1-A conference play.
