Trinity Christian and Heritage School girls basketball teams took turns frustrating LaGrange Academy over a three-day span, each pulling through with sizable non-region victories thanks to dominating third quarters.

On Monday, Trinity’s girls outscored LaGrange 14-0 coming out of halftime en route to a 50-33 victory at home.

Sara Bryan led the way for the Lady Lions with 20 points and Ashley Caldwell finished with 19 points and nine steals in the victory. Kaley Grace and Sirena Eller each had four points for Trinity, which turned a slim 2-point deficit into a 16-point lead to open the fourth quarter.

The Lady Hawks, meanwhile, put the finishing touches of a 47-22 win over LaGrange Academy with a 10-1 run in the third quarter of their victory on Saturday.

Heritage again continued its prowess for holding opponents under 30 points while 11 players contributed points and 13 of 15 players posted at least one rebounds.

Kara Groover and Leslie Smith led the team with nine and seven points, respectively.

Both programs now prepare to play Flint River this week starting with Heritage making a trip to Woodbury on Thursday and Trinity hosting a doubleheader on Friday before heading into the Christmas holidays. When they return, both GISA rivals will participate in Heritage’s annual Christmas tournament starting on Dec. 27.

Boys teams each dropped games to LaGrange Academy. Heritage’s boys got off to a slow start in a 72-61 on the road Saturday despite 27 points from Rich Yancey, who connected on 4 of 8 attempts from 3-point range. Yancey also had nine rebounds while Cole Jones had eight points and six rebounds.
