Jourdan Ledford drained seven 3-pointers to lift Harlan to an 80-46 rout of host Knox Central in the Southeastern Kentucky Conference Panorama on Friday.

Ledford, one of the region’s top rated players, poured in 29 points to power Harlan in the impressive victory. Freshman point guard Jordan Brock added 15 points, while junior Torri Mitchell recorded 12 points.

“I thought we shot the ball well. We got some good looks, and they went in. We still have to work and execute offensively,” said Harlan coach Derrick Akal. “Jourdan made a bunch of 3’s. That is her strength. If you let her shoot 3’s she is going to make a high percentage.”

Eighth-grade center Mackenzie King fired in 22 points, but Harlan fell 51-50 in the junior varsity contest.

The Lady Dragons open the regular season on Dec. 2 at Whitley County.
