NEVC SENIOR PERFORMANCE – Senior Shelby Wilkins was one of three NEVC seniors who showed great leadership Friday night in their victory over Calhoun.

Friday night the NEVC Lady Knights protected their homecoming court with a relentless defense and pinpoint shooting. Their victory was never in question, only the final margin. They won 49-14.

Head Coach Jeremy Barger said, “I could not be more proud of how my girls played as a team on Friday. We have not consistently played as a team this year and Friday was the best they have done to this point. Since it was homecoming, I was obviously worried about distractions but the girls really did a great job in staying focused. The girls jumped to a big lead early and never looked back. Seniors, Ryann Ford, Payton Hays and Shelby Wilkins showed great leadership on Friday and that is something that we need on a consistent basis if we want to even talk or think about winning any championships in the future. We are 9-9 on the season and hope to continue to get better.”
