The State Fair Lady Roadrunners took the floor Saturday, Oct. 24 in their final jamboree of the preseason. SFCC traveled to Fayette, Missouri to take part in the Central Methodist University Jamboree
The Lady Roadrunners went 3-1 in the event with victories over Hannibal- LaGrange Junior Varsity, Southeastern Community College and Central Methodist University Junior Varsity. SFCC lost to Highland Community College.
"I thought Tatianna Washington played very well. I thought Maci Wisdom played well. There were some good things; we just didn't have consistency that we wanted," said Assistant Coach Kevin Bucher.
State Fair jumped all over Hannibal-LaGrange in their opening game and rolled to a 60-10 win. Brittany Young led the team in scoring with 10 points. Dahlia Booker contributed 12 points, five steals and two rebounds.
SFCC had to turnaround almost immediately and play Highland. Highland defeated the Lady Roadrunners 38-25. Booker led the team in scoring with six points. Young added five points and four rebounds for the game.
Bouncing back against Southeastern Iowa, the Lady Roadrunners collected a convincing 49-9 win. Young led the scoring with 15 points and four rebounds. Washington added 13 points and three rebounds. Wisdom had a solid all-around game with seven points, five rebounds, three assists and a blocked shot. Juliua Fraser chipped in with nine rebounds, two blocked shots and two points.
The Lady Roadrunners finished the day by defeating Central Methodist 54-28. Washington led the team in scoring with 13 points. She added three rebounds, two assists and a block. Wisdom contributed 12 points, and Young added 10.
SFCC will host Missouri Valley College in the annual preseason scrimmage at 5:30 p.m. Oct. 28. Bucher is looking forward to seeing how the team performs.
"You really get an idea of how good your team can be when you're playing against juniors and seniors. It can really show your weaknesses . . . then we will have a week and a half to prepare for the first ballgame," said Bucher.
