DRUMMOND – The Trojan basketball teams swept visiting Hot Springs Friday night in their respective regular season finales, setting the table for the District 13C Tournament that begins next week.

The Lady Trojans typically wound their opponents with an array of mid-range to long shooting. But over the last two games Drummond has gone inside.

Senior Liz Perry, playing her final regular season game at home, scored a career high 30 points. She completed the double-double by grabbing 14 rebounds, 11 of which came on offense.

Likewise, 8th grader Remington Cline scored 14 points and had eight boards. Over the last two games the Lady Trojan twin towers have scored a combined 77 points, with Perry getting 44 and Cline 33.

The duo helped Drummond get off to a fast start scoring a combined 16 points in a 25-5 first quarter. The offensive surge, added to a tough defense, set the tone as the Lady Savage Heat were unable to mount much scoring of their own.

Kimber Parsons got on track later in the game and finished with 11 points, three steals and six assists.

The Lady Trojans won’t play in the District 13C Tournament until Friday, Feb. 17, as they earned a first-round bye finishing first in district play. That game will pit them against the survivor of the Darby (4th) vs. Valley Christian (5th) at 3:30 p.m.

The District 13C Tournament takes place in Hamilton Feb. 16-18 and will be broadcast on the NFHS Network.

The Trojans opened Senior Night on fire, executing on both ends of the floor and out scoring Hot Springs 17-4 in the first and 16-2 in the second for a commanding 33-6 advantage at halftime.

But as the third period started, casual onlookers thought they might be seeing one of Drummond’s characteristic lapses. But that was not the case.

“We had started mixing and matching some kids and it just took the rhythm out of it,” said DHS Head Coach Levi Parsons, speaking about the drop in offensive output in the third period. “That and he (Savage Heat Head Coach Riley Winebrenner) made weird change where he subbed in all his JV kids … I think it just took us time to adjust to it.”

Once the Trojans made the adjustment, they got back to business and ran off a 16-9 spurt to close out the game.

Colt Parsons led Drummond with 13 points in his final regular season game, with Brody Rasor adding 12.

Senior Ben Bradshaw had nine points and eight rebounds, while Scott Parke chipped in nine points, seven boards, and four assists.

The Trojans’ second place finish in district places them in a game with Lincoln (7th) in the opening round of the District 13C Tournament Feb. 16 in Hamilton. Tipoff is set for noon.

A victory would send them into the Winner’s Bracket semifinal against the winner of Seeley Swan (3rd) vs. Victor (6th) on Friday at 5 p.m. A loss would relegate them to the Consolation Bracket at 11 a.m., also on Friday.
