Marion, Dragon Fire Tournament Champs

Karla Norton saved her best for last. So did Timeshia Pettigrew, and the combination carried Marion to a 68-54 victory over Byhalia on Thursday night and its first Dragon Fire Invitational Championship at Collierville.

Tournament MVP Norton drove to 33 points, including 16-of-19 from the foul line and nine straight free throws in the fourth quarter for the Patriots (11-1). She finished the tournament with 103 points in four games, 38 in the fourth quarter of Marion's last three starts.

"I wasn't getting tired," Norton said with a sly smile at coach Darryle Long. "We weren't tired at all."

Pettigrew, a 5-3 junior, was the early spark with 15 of her 17 points. Most came off steals and fast breaks, and she added a half-dozen assists on the end of the Patriots' fast break.
