Women's Basketball - Thu, Mar. 31, 2011
Angie Lawrence became the third piece of a big recruit class for Georgetown College women's basketball. The 5-foot-5 senior guard from Rockcastle County is also the first official player to sign under new head coach Andrea McCloskey.
She joins Devanny King and Sami Baker in the 2011-12 class.
Lawrence proved her game toughness, helping the Lady Rockets to an overtime win in the state finals on March 13. She hit the game-winner with one second left to bring home the title to Mt. Vernon. She scored 18 points that game and Rockcastle lost just once this past season, going 36-1, and the lone blemish was to an out-of-state team Mt. Juliet out of Tennessee, who advanced all the way to the region semifinals and had Miss Tennessee Basketball finalist in junior Caya Williams.
Lawrence averaged 14.8 points, 4.5 assists, 2 rebounds and 3.6 steals per game during her senior year. She was named the 2010 Cumberland Falls Classic Tournament MVP, 2011 12th Region Tournament MVP and Player of the Game in the state tournament against Clay County and Calloway County.
She was named to the 2011 47th District All-Tournament team, 12th Region All-Tournament team and All-State Tournament team. She also earned the 47th District Sportsmanship award in 2011.
Her junior year she averaged 12 ppg, 3.4 apg, 2.1 rpg and 4.2 spg. She was named to the 2009 Max Performance Lady Rocket Invitational All-Tournament team and Gateway Holiday All-Tournament team, and 2010 47th District All-Tournament team and 12th Region All-Tournament team.
She finished ranked in the state for free throw shooting her junior year, hitting 83.2 percent.
Lawrence is also part of RCHS' 1,000 point club. She eclipsed that mark on Jan. 18, 2011 in a 65-41 win over Wayne County at home.
