Sophomore guard powering Dallas Lincoln
By Jeff Andrews
Sophomore guard Breanna Hayden has Dallas Lincoln cruising through District 12-4A play.
Lincoln (15-2, 4-0), No. 5 in ESPN Dallas’ Class 4A girls rankings, has jumped to the top of the standings after dominating wins over Dallas Bryan Adams (72-27) and Dallas Woodrow Wilson (71-30), which are tied for second place.
Hayden, the younger sister of current Baylor standout Kimetria Hayden, leads Lincoln with 14.1 points, 6.3 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game.
Fellow guard Camesha Turner has impressed as well, registering 13 points, 3.6 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game, giving Lincoln one of the more potent backcourts in the area.
The 12-4A schedule is loaded with important games this weekend as the halfway point of district play approaches.
Lincoln hosts fourth-place Dallas Conrad (13-6, 3-2) on Friday while Bryan Adams (13-6, 4-1) and Woodrow Wilson (13-8, 4-1) will break their second-place tie Saturday.
