Brookwood size, shooting too much

When Brookwood took the court for Friday night’s game, it was obvious they had a height advantage over host Chilton County.

What the Tigers might not have counted on was that the visitors would also be able to score from outside.

Brookwood won, 66-44, and CCHS fell to 3-5 overall and 0-2 in area play.

Two 3-pointers by Brookwood’s Jaylin Prewitt to open the game put Chilton in a hole it would never climb out of, especially not with big men Tavares Sledge and Sean Tingle gobbling up rebounds, throwing down dunks and swatting away CCHS shots.

Sledge led all scorers with 22 points. Grantland Karn led CCHS with 13 points.

The CCHS girls team also fell, 48-28.

The Tigers (0-8, 0-2) led, 7-5, after one period, but Brookwood’s zone defense stifled the hosts the rest of the way.

Senior Renee Lewis scored a team-high 12 points for CCHS.
