Mittie scores 30, nearly records triple-double to lead Ladycats to district-opening win over Mineral Wells

December 15, 2009 by Tony Eierdam

Aledo junior guard Logan Mittie scored 30 points, grabbed nine rebounds and recorded nine steals to lead the Ladycats to a 56-28 victory over the Mineral Wells Lady Rams Tuesday night in the girls' District 6-4A basketball opener at Mineral Wells.

The win - the seventh in a row for the Ladycats - raises AHS' overall mark to 12-5. The Ladycats will continue district play at 6 p.m. Friday, Dec. 18, at home against Birdville.

"Logan is a special player," Ladycats head coach Rusty Johnson said. "She is averaging 16 points a game, but in the last 10 games she is averaging somewhere between 20-25 points a game. She also leads our team in rebounds and assists. Again, she is a special player."

Mittie jump-started the Aledo offense with 10 points in the first quarter, including a three-point bucket. But the Ladycats' defense - which held the Lady Rams to single digits in three quarters - allowed just four points in the opening period as AHS led 16-4 after eight minutes of play.

Mittie and sophomore wing Caileen Tallant did most of the damage in the second quarter as Mittie scored six points and Tallant added four as the Ladycats took a 32-15 lead at the half.

Aledo outscored Mineral Wells 13-6 in the third period to take a 45-21 lead into the fourth quarter.

Also scoring for the Ladycats were Tallant,sophomore guard Alanna Martin and Gough, each with six points, junior wing Sarah Hawkins with three, freshman wing Mallory Powell and senior post Kendall Naquin, each with two, and sophomore guard Haley Loftin with one.

The Ladycats were also active on the boards. Naquin finished with a season-high eight rebounds, with Gough and Powell each adding five. Also, Gough and Martin each recorded three steals.
