LITTLE ROCK — The Carlisle Lady Bison basketball team kicked off the 2014-15 season with scrimmages on Saturday at Little Rock Fair High School.
They played both North Pulaski and Fair for two quarters each. Carlisle beat the Class 5A Lady Falcons 26-25; the Lady Bison then beat the Class 5A Lady War Eagles 35-12.
In the win over North Pulaski, Kylie Warren led Carlisle with 18 points. Nikita Harper had 3. Peyton Hitchings and Nicquira Burnett had 2 points each. Kayla Golleher added a free throw.
In the win over Fair, Warren led Carlisle with 8 points. Golleher had 7. Molli Weems, Elex McClain, Harper and Hitchings had 4 points each. Journey Jennings added two.
Carlisle coach Jonathan Buffalo said playing the scrimmage games was good for his team so they got rid of any nervousness they might have before the season opener Tuesday against Woodlawn at Bison Arena.
"It was good to get on the court against someone besides yourself," he said. "I could find good things that all 12 players did today. They played hard and they played defense. I was proud of the effort that they put forth today."
Carlisle will play Woodlawn in three girls games Tuesday night. The seventh-grade girls game starts at 5:30 p.m. followed by the junior girls then senior girls.
