Lady Wolves rout AAAAA Cedar Shoals in ugly 69-51 win

AC Carter scores over Cedar Shoals' Jeanetta Elder
Wesleyan defeated Cedar Shoals 69-51 Tuesday night in a mostly sloppy performance at Yancey Gymnasium.  The first ever meeting between Wesleyan and Cedar Shoals saw the Lady Wolves hold leads of 17-10 at the end of the first quarter and 41-26 at halftime. The teams played mostly evenly in the second half. Wesleyan seemed to be in pre-exams mode as their collective heads seemed to be somewhere else this evening.  Sloppy play and turnovers were prevalent tonight.  The team is allowed a mulligan as they still won by 18 over a much larger Class AAAAA school.  Izzy Larsen led the scoring effort with 25 points to go with four rebounds and two steals.  AC Carter put up 18 points to go with seven rebounds, four assists and four steals.  Alyssa Phillip added 11 points while Paige Lyons had a game high 12 assists to go with seven points, four rebounds and four steals.  Wesleyan improves to 9-0 on the season with Class AAAAAAA Brookwood on the horizon on Saturday.  The Lady Wolves face the Broncos at 4:15 on Saturday at Norcross High School.

Top ranked Wesleyan dominates No. 10 Landmark Christian 70-26

Alyssa Phillip eyes the basket for uncontested layup
Wesleyan's long home stand continued Friday night. Class A No. 10 ranked Landmark Christian drove up to Norcross from Fairburn to take on the top ranked Lady Wolves and was handed a 70-26 loss in front of a nice sized crowd at Yanecy Gymnasium.  This was the fifth straight home game for Wesleyan and the outcome was never in doubt.  The Lady Wolves led 21-2 at the end of the first quarter and 35-11 at halftime.  Despite the lopsided lead, Coach Azar wasn't happy with her team's effort in the first half, mainly the lack of team cohesiveness.  The third quarter was a different story as the team did a better job of sharing the ball and pushing it up the floor.  The result was a 23-9 advantage in the period resulting in a 58-20 lead heading into the shortened six-minute fourth quarter.  Junior AC Carter turned in another double double as she led the team in scoring and rebounds with 15 points and 15 rebounds to go with five assists and two steals.  Senior Callie Weaver put up 13 points, five rebounds and four assists while Sophomore Alyssa Phillip had 12 points.  Sophomore Nicole Azar added nine points, three boards and two assists for Wesleyan while junior Izzy Larsen eight points, six rebounds and two steals. Sophomore Paige Lyons chipped in seven points, three steals, three assists and two boards for the Lady Wolves who improve to 8-0 on the season with the win.  The last game of this six-game homestand will be Tuesday night as Cedar Shoals travels to Norcross from Athens.  Tipoff is 6:00 PM.

Birthday girl Callie Weaver shoots over GAC's Jaci Bolden
Old rivals Wesleyan and Greater Atlanta Christian met for the first time in almost three years Saturday night at Wesleyan.  The Lady Wolves emerged a 65-55 winner over the AAA No. 6 ranked Spartans in a very physical battle.  The two Norcross schools hadn't played since February of 2016 when Wesleyan elminated GAC in the semifinals of the Class AA state tournament.  Since then, the Georgia High School Association reclassified GAC into Class AAA while placing Wesleyan in Class A.  Things started off well enough for Wesleyan as they led 21-11 at the end of the first quarter.  Wesleyan upped its lead to 33-21 at halftime.  The Lady Wolves' lead grew as high as 18 points midway through the third quarter before GAC upped it's defensive pressure.  Their full court pressure allowed turnovers which turned into GAC points.  GAC outscored Wesleyan 16-10 cutting the lead to 43-37 heading into the fourth quarter.  GAC cut the lead to two at 45-43 midway through the fourth quarter.  Then a three pointer by Nicole Azar and a layup by Paige Lyons stretched the lead back to seven at 50-43 and GAC never threatened again.  Four Wesleyan players scored in double figures led by Paige Lyons with 17 points, three assists, three steals and three rebounds.  Callie Weaver scored 16 points and took a monster five charges.  AC Carter added 15 points and eight rebounds for the Lady Wolves while Nicole Azar had 10 points and three assists.  Wesleyan improves to 6-0 with the win while GAC drops to 3-3.  They next face Prince Avenue on Tuesday at Wesleyan.  Tipoff is 6:00 PM.

Paige Lyons and Nicole Azar trap Pope'sTeya Holloman
The start was slow but the finish was positive as Wesleyan rolled over Class AAAAAA Pope posting a 69-42 win in the first ever meeting between the schools.  After three games away from home, the Lady Wolves' home debut began inauspiciously as the visiting Greyhounds scored the games' first five points.  Wesleyan finally got on the board after going scoreless for the first five minutes of the game.  They closed the first quarter on and 8-0 run leading 8-5 at the end of one.  Both teams seemed to get into a better flow in the second quarter as Wesleyan outscored Pope 24-14 talking a 32-19 lead into halftime.  The lead was stretched to 23 points as Wesleyan took a 54-31 lead at the end of the third quarter.  The team continued to roll in the fourth with all players getting in on the action.  AC Carter led the scoring for Wesleyan with 23 points along with eight rebounds, three steals, two assists and two blocked shots.  Paige Lyons put up 14 points, five rebounds, four assists and two steals while Nicole Azar had 12 points.  Izzy Larsen had another double double with 12 rebounds and 10 points.  She also had four steals, two assists and two blocks.  Alyssa Phillip finished with six points and three rebounds while Jessie Parish finished with four points and four boards.  Wesleyan ups its record to 4-0 with the win while Pope drops to 1-1.  The Lady Wolves will take a break to enjoy Thanksgiving and get right back to work next Monday.  Tonight's game was the first of six straight home games.  Up next is a meeting with St. Pius next Thursday, November 29.  Tipoff is 5:30 PM at Wesleyan.

Lady Wolves dig out of first quarter hole, take down Class AAAAAA No. 5 ranked Stephenson 60-49

Paige Lyons drives past Stephenson defender
Wesleyan defeated Class AAAAAA No. 5 ranked Stephenson 60-49 in a non-region contest held at Parkview High School Monday night.  It was the third overall meeting between the schools and the first since a 67-59 Wesleyan win in Mrytle Beach, South Carolina back in 2009.  On a night when shots weren't falling, the Lady Wolves were able to find a way to beat a speedy, athletic Stephenson squad.  Stephenson, a Class AAAAAA school from Dekalb county, was knocking down shots left and right in the first quarter as Wesleyan aided their efforts by turning the ball over.  The Lady Jaguars built a 19-9 lead at the end of the first quarter.  Wesleyan changed up its defense in the second quarter and the pendulum began to swing in the Lady Wolves' favor.  Wesleyan went on a 15-3 run and took a 24-22 lead at the 2:48 mark.  The Lady Wolves took a 30-27 lead into halftime.  Wesleyan continued to play better defense in the second half as Alyssa Phillip and AC Carter did a nice job on the defensive boards.  The Lady Wolves' lead increased to 47-39 at the end of the third quarter.  Wesleyan then outscored Stephenson 13-10 in the fourth, effiectively finishing off the Lady Jags.  As stated earlier, Weslyean's shooting percentage wasn't stellar to say the least.  The team shot just 38% from the field on 18-for-47 shooting and were also a not-so-good 57% from the free throw line on 20-for-35 shooting.  Still, this was a good test for a young Wesleyan squad with only three upperclassmen on the roster. Sophomore Paige Lyons led the Wesleyan scoring effort with 13 points to go with five rebounds and two assists.  Junior AC Carter barely missed a double double as she scored 11 points to go with nine boards and two blocks.  Senior Callie Weaver took an elbow to the nose in the second half....was called for a foul no less, but still had a strong night scoring 10 points while grabbing five rebounds and dishing a pair of assists.  Junior Izzy Larsen added eight points and a team high 11 rebounds and had three blocks.  Sophomore Nicole Azar chipped in seven points, two assists and a steal while fellow soph Alyssa Phillip added five points and four boards.  The team showed much resolve in battling back from an early double digit deficit to post a double digit win.  Wesleyan is now 3-0 on the season and will be making 2018-2019 home debut tomorrow against Class AAAAAAA Pope tomorrow.  Tipoff is 2:30 PM at Wesleyan.
