Staff report

LEXINGTON — Hannah Wilkerson, Kamora Cannie and Makiya McDaniel picked up where they left off and their young teammates stuffed the stat sheet on Wednesday.

North blew out Lexington 60-16 in a non-conference opener for both squads.

It was the first game as North’s head coach for Anthia Smith. She’s been an assistant to Lamar Wilkerson, who’s gotten the program rolling again in recent years.

Freshman Bailee Goodlett had 15 points, six assists and five steals in her debut.  Freshman Brittany Ellis had nine points, five rebounds, three steals and two assists.

Freshman Bloom Goodlett, Bailee’s twin sister, had five rebounds.

Even in a COVID-shortened season, Hannah Wilkerson should easily surpass 1,000 points as a junior. She has 931 for her career after a big opening night. She had 17 points, 10 rebounds, five steals, five assists and three blocks.

McDaniel had 13 points and four rebounds.

Cannie, who transferred to North last season from South Meck, contributed six points, five rebounds, four steals and three assists.

Chloee Stoner added two assists and two steals.

“Our girls came to play,” Smith said. “Our veterans set the tone for what to expect. I was very proud.”
