FREEPORT'S MARY KATE MYRICK ran into foul trouble early in the game against South Walton and did not see much action in the middle quarters. She netted four straight shots from the stripe in the fourth quarter, and scored seven points overall, but she fouled out shortly before the end of the game. South Walton’s girls hoops team broke its early-season .500 record by posting an impressive 51-23 victory over perennial north-of-the-bay rival Freeport. (Photo by Reid Tucker)
