Girls’ Basketball – article submitted by Coach Woodard
The girls’ team defeated Spartanburg Prep last Thursday, with a great second half performance. Leading by only 4 at the half, the girls really turned up the defense in the second half and created more opportunities on the offensive end. Carrington Williams had one of her best games of the season so far, and Amy Thomson and Emily Mages both dropped in our first 3 pointers of the season. We played Bob Jones Academy this Monday, and we beat them after losing to them twice last season. Jaedyn Hill-Mims led the way with rebounds, and we saw many players contribute on the offensive end. Ashley Kessinger and Caroline Roller played one of their best games coming in off of the bench, and Hannah Fugate has continued to be a threat on both ends of the floor.
Then entire team is beginning to really show improvements with each game.
Boys’ Basketball – article submitted by Coach Deas
The LCMS boys’ basketball team hosted Bob Jones Academy Monday, Nov 24, and extended their early season winning streak to 4-0. The Chargers got off to a slow start due to a tight zone defense and held only a small advantage as the first quarter ended with the score 5-0. The Chargers then started successfully attacking the Bob Jones zone with success and built a 19-2 advantage by half time. The Chargers continued their success of beating the zone coverage for good open shots and multiple fast break opportunities to extend their lead to a 29-10 victory. Grant Dowis led the way with 8 points with Ian Thomson contributing 6, Jacob Walker and Javon Douglas each adding 4.
Langston hosts Mitchell Road Christian School on Tuesday Dec. 2, girls at 4:00, boys at 5:00 at Rocky Creek. Please come out and support The Chargers!
