Samantha Dimmette has been solid for Elkin all year.
In the Lady Elks' first win of the season, against North Wilkes, Elkin was able to blister a 46-35 win.
Although the Elks were able to get an early win against North Wilkes, the rest of their season was filled with tough battles.
During the Northwest-MVAC Challenge over the winter break, Elkin nearly pulled off a win against the South Stokes Sauras.
Dimmette pounded the boards, posting 37 points in the game.
Despite her efforts, the Lady Elks fell short 57-44.
Elkin continued to roll through the season, but still struggled to pull off a win, until they faced the North Wilkes Lady Vikings again.
Dimmette again flexed the Elks' offensive muscle, and posted 23 points to lead Elkin.
While Dimmette's offensive presence dominated the paint, Morgan Moody was able to help lift the offense with outside shooting.
After earning a much-needed win, and completing the sweep against the Lady Vikings, snow days kept the Elks from playing consistently through most of January.
Still, after a few hard-fought losses to Alleghany and Ashe County, Elkin hosted the Forbush Falcons.
Knowing the Falcons ability to post big numbers via quick point guards and a big inside presence, the Elks would have to play smart ball to pull off a win.
And thats just what Elkin did.
After an odd third quarter, the Lady Elks were able to hold off the Falcons 26-24 in overtime for the upset victory.
Although the regular season has come to an end, the upset over the Falcons prove the Elks can play with anyone in the league.
Bearing that in mind, Elkin hopes to cause trouble for teams in the conference tournament beginning next week.
