Krum (Texas) too potent for Lady Zebras

BIXBY — The growing pains continue for the Claremore Lady Zebras under first-year head coach Stephanie Shaw.

Claremore got behind 15-0 to Krum, Texas and lost 62-41 Saturday afternoon in the third place game of the Bixby Tournament.

Under Shaw’s leadership, the Lady Zebras are 2-3 on the season with wins over Class 5A Coweta and Class 6A Stillwater.

In the Bixby Tournament, the Lady Zebras pulled off a stunning 40-35 win over Stillwater in the opening round.

Freshman guard Monica Taylor tallied nine points and Ashlyn Glenn added eight to spark the Lady Zebras.

Then, in the semifinals, the Lady Zebras returned to their timid ways and dropped a 66-27 decision to the Bixby Lady Spartans.

According to Shaw, her Lady Zebras played scared against Bixby.

“You could see it on their faces before the game even started,” Shaw said.

With former Claremore head coach Mark Campbell sitting on the Bixby bench while his daughter, Melody Stewart coached the Lady Spartans, the Lady Zebras got behind 16-4 at the end of the first quarter and never recovered.

Saturday’s game against Krum got off to a rocky start for the Lady Zebras, but ended with a positive sign.

Despite trailing 39-22 at halftime, the Lady Zebras narrowed the deficit to 48-35 with 6:12 remaining in the fourth quarter.

Kaleigh Cox converted 1-of-2 free throws and Morgan Johnson drained a three-pointer to get the Lady Zebras back within striking distance of Krum.

The Lady Zebras, however, couldn’t stop Krum’s inside presence as the Lady Cats outscored Claremore, 13-6 in the final five minutes of play.

Rachel Wallace — one of six seniors on the Krum team — led the Lady Cats with 18 points, including 11 in the first half.

Caitlyn Arnold — also a senior — contributed with 11 first-half points for Krum.

Taylor, who has made three treys  in the game, led the Lady Zebras with nine points. Glenn also had seven points, while Cox and Alex Crews finished with six each. Anna McGuire tossed in five points, followed by Johnson and Bailey Steckline with three apiece.

Note: Bixby won the tournament with a 36-25 win over Shawnee.
