|03/03/14 - Ada High girls’ soccer team head coach Cole Jones is looking for a few girls to take his 2014 squad to the playoffs.|
And he thinks he has found them.
“We’ve got some awesome leadership this year on our team,” Jones said. “Our team chemistry is really tops and these girls stick together. I’m looking forward to an outstanding year.”
This year’s captains are seniors Amaris Smitherman, Kyler Gilliam and Roudee Humphers, and junior Taylor Hodges. Each of these players, Jones said, is dedicated to pushing her teammates to the top, and to the playoffs.
“We’ve got a tough district,” Jones said. “But I’m feeling very good about where we are headed this year.”
|03/03/14 - Entering its 14th spring season, the Ada High School boys’ soccer team is showing the maturity a consistent program develops over time.|
And the Cougars will need all the mettle they can muster when they enter a tough lineup of district play after spring break.
Head coach Tom Morrison is back to lead the boys’ squad. Morrison believes this year the Cougars could very well be hitting their stride at the right time.
“We were held back in our conditioning by the weather,” Morrison said. “We’re going to have to play ourselves into match shape. With the kind of team we have this year, I think that’s going to happen and we will enter district play very strong.”
|03/03/14 - Junior forward Cory Kilby fired in a game-high 24 points as the 19th-ranked Ada Cougars upended the Wildcats.|
Kilby connected on four 3-point jumpers in the contest while scoring big in the first and fourth quarters. He tallied all nine of the Ada points in the opening quarter off one trey and threeshort range buckets and totaled eight in the fourth off two 3-pointers and a pair of two-point baskets.
The Cougars doubled Bethel’s fieldgoal total, 20-10. Ada also totaled eight 3-pointers on the night.
Joining Kilby in double figures was Jamal Henderson with 13, including three treys. David Forbe followed with seven points, Walker Whitworth tossed in five and Tryce Prince chipped in three.
Trailing 14-9 through one quarter, the Couagrs outscored the Wildcats, 14-2, in the second on the way to a 23-16 halftime advantage. Ada then outscored Bethel 13-10 in the third to lead, 36-26, after three periods.
The Cougars then pulled away by doubling up the Wildcats, 16-8, in the fourth quarter.

|03/03/14 - Unlike the previous game, when Bethel shot 100% from the field in the first quarter, Thursday night Ada held Bethel to six points in the opening frame. Bethel (13-11) opened all scoring two and a half minutes into the game when Mikayla Whitten got open inside and hit an easy lay up. Ada answered when Blakley got open near the low block and her turnaround jumper fell. Wells and Blakley scored all eight of Ada's first-quarter points.|
“We always talk about winning every quarter, and we did that tonight,” an elated head coach Christie Jennings said following the win.
