    The Eminence Warriors girls’ basketball team traveled to Louisville on Feb. 18 to take on Whitefield Academy where a slow start and pressure defense by the Lady Wildcats spelled doom for the young Warrior team. Whitefield came out on top 39-14.
    “We started out okay,” Coach Zach Adair said. “It was only 2-0 after three or four minutes but their 2-2-1 full court press started to cause us problems. We made one mistake and then it turned into two then three or four and the game got away from us.”
