Morine played a vital role in helping the Lady Tornadoes to two big wins over Westover and Americus-Sumter last week. Against Westover, she finished with eight points but her defense was pivotal. She finished with a game-high 22 points against Americus-Sumter, helping Herald No. 1 Monroe rally to stay unbeaten.


QUOTE OF THE WEEK

“This gives us the lift we need going into the break. Before the game I challenged the kids to create a story. I asked them, ’10 years from now if you have a kid, what will be your story from your high school athletic experience?’ Every athlete wants to have a story.” — Lee County coach Kirven Davis after his Trojans topped Herald No. 2 Seminole County 72-70 Tuesday night.
