“Little Lindsay” Gauldin, from Northwest Guilford High School, came up BIG with the Game-Winning Layup for the Guilford College Women’s Basketball Team:Lindsay also led the Quakers in scoring, with 30 points

Ran into “Little Lindsay” about two weeks ago, at a Northern Guilford girls basketball game…She was there with Ava Casper(Page HS) and Ava’s dad, Andy Casper…

Mr. Casper asked me if I remembered “Little Lindsay”, and I said I sure do…Saw her grow up and become a leader and a State Champion for the Northwest Guilford girls basketball team, and now “Little Lindsay” is doing BIG things for the Guilford College women’s basketball team…

When she was younger, “Little Lindsay” was skinny as a rail, but now she is all grown up, and has become strong and brave…

I saw her one time at Southwest Guilford, when the Cowgirls had Lashonda Monk, and “Little Lindsay” had to leave that game on that Saturday afternoon, and she left crying with an injury…But, “Little Lindsay” came back, and she helped lead her NWG Vikings to a victory over Monk, and the SWG Cowgirls…

“Little Lindsay” fought back, and like we said earlier, now she is doing BIG things for the Guilford College women’s basketball team…Never will forget those kids from back in day, loved to watch them play, and good to see many of them are still playing and they are Winning/Winners….

Gauldin’s Late Layup Lifts GC over Lynchburg

The Guilford Quakers women’s basketball team traveled to the University of Lynchburg to take on the Hornets in a closely contested game. The Quakers edged out the Hornets 83-82 from a last-second bucket by Lindsay Gauldin.

In the first quarter, there were seven lead changes while both teams struggled to keep the momentum. The first quarter ended 25-21 in favor of Lynchburg.

The Quakers had to fight in the second quarter to maintain a close distance to the Hornets, finding themselves down nine with three minutes left in the half. Coming out of a timeout, J’la Hinson made a layup, followed by a three-pointer by Gauldin to keep them within striking distance. Lynchburg held the advantage at the half, 43-36.

The start of the second half was a shaky one for Guilford, finding themselves down 15 quickly. The Quakers responded with a nine-point run to bring themselves back in the hunt. From there, Guilford was able to take the lead with a layup from Courtney McMillan to make the score 57-55. The Quakers ended up outscoring the hosts by 15 (27-12) in the period and led 63-55.

At the start of the fourth quarter, Guilford gave up a small run to the Hornets and found themselves in a back-and-forth ending. With 35 seconds left, Gauldin made one of two free throws to make the score 82-79. McMillan then drew a foul and knocked down both free throw attempts to cut the deficit to one. With a much-needed defensive stop and a steal by McMillan, the Quakers ran the floor leading to the game-winning layup made by Gauldin to make the final score 83-82.

The leaders for Guilford were Gauldin with 30 points, five rebounds and six steals. Carleigh Perry added16 points, three assists, and three steals while Anna Giannopoulou with 12 points six rebounds, and three steals.
