Graceville, FL--Now to hoops and for a select few girl's teams in our area, Tuesday night meant second round state playoff action, or what
they call the region semifinals. Ponce de Leon and Graceville among them, this their 2-A semi in the latter's gym. Graceville jumps out to the quick lead, Zay Henderson fires up a three and hits. Tigers up by 6. Then it's Graceville's go-to-girl, Jessica McClendon hitting the turnaround.
Later in the first, Henderson feeds McClendon again for another basket. And though Ponce ends the half on a 7-zip run... which had the game tied at 23 at the half, the Lady Tigers 4 points better in the second half, they win 52-48, they will play at Lafayette Saturday in the region final.
