Cleaning out the notebook

This blog will help me "clean out" the notebook from time to time, and hopefully keep my readers informed on what's happening in Wilson County sports. TB

* Tough loss for Wilson Central Thursday in the TSSAA state tournament. A 46-39 final score doesn't tell the whole story. WC was down 19-10 after one quarter and trailed by 11 a couple of times. They came back to tie the score at 32-all in the fourth, but poor shooting at the free throw line (18-of-29) hurt.

MJ's Clark honored by NSC


From Post staff reports
NASHVILLE -- Former Mt. Juliet High basketball standout and three-time NCAA All-American Alysha Clark was among the athletes honored Wednesday night as the Nashville Sports Council presented its annual Celebration of Champions at the Grand Ole Opry House.

She was named the winner of the Ed Temple Amateur Female Athlete of the Year. At Mt. Juliet High, Clark was a former TSSAA Class AAA Miss Basketball and was named Most Valuable Player of the 2005 state tournament -- won by her Lady Bears.

She completed her stellar two-year MTSU Blue Raider career as the nation's leading scorer both seasons, including a school-record 27.5 ppg a year ago.

She was tabbed as an All-American in 2009 and 2010, the only two-time selection in school history, and went on to become a second round pick of the San Antonio Silver Stars of the WNBA.

At Nashville’s Belmont University, Clark was twice named Atlantic Sun Player of the year and earned Player of the Week honors 10 times.

Clark is currently playing professional basketball overseas in Israel.

WC falls to Mem. Overton


From Post staff reports
MURFREESBORO -- Down by 11 on two different occasions, Wilson Central’s Lady Wildcats didn’t run for cover in a 46-39 loss to eventual state champion Memphis Overton in the March 10 quarterfinals of the TSSAA’s BlueCross Class AAA Championships at Murphy Center. In fact, the youthful squad came painfully close to pulling the upset.

Battling an athletic Overton team as well as their own offensive woes, Central managed to knot the score at 32-all on a couple of free throws by senior Ieshia Hassell with 5:40 left in the game.

The game seesawed back and fourth for the next couple of minutes as Overton post Cortice Golden powered in a couple of baskets, only to see Taylor Peterson nail a pair of free throws at the 4:11 mark to keep the game at a two-point spread (36-34).
