The Lady Wolverines hosted the Lady Flashes of Calhoun Falls Tuesday night in what would be the conclusion of the 20-21 season. The Lady Flashes would get a large first half lead off of some sloppy and passive play by the Lady Wolverines that allowed Calhoun Falls (CF) to get out in transition and get a lot of easy baskets. The Lady Wolverines would make some halftime adjustments and make a furious comeback that saw the game come to a 10-point differential at one point, but it would never get closer than that. The Lady Wolverines did a great job of playing with intensity and a lot of energy in the second half and moved the ball better than they had all year. I was very proud of their perseverance and ability to put the first half behind them. I hate that we decided to play our best game of the season in the finale, but I am happy the girl’s finished strong. It was a tough season full of ups and downs, but the girls did a great job of keeping their wits about them and finishing what was a very interesting winter sports season.
Alexus Sanders led the team in scoring with 16. Janiyah Epps poured in 12, Leanna Eison 8, Ashelyn King 5, Sammy Strubeck 3, and Montasia Vanlue & Nyla Hill 2.
This was the best rebounding game of the season as every girl got into the mix. Ashelyn King led the team with 8 board. Alexus Sanders, Leanna Eison, Montasia Vanlue, Janiyah Epps, and Erica Boland all had 5+ rebounds.
Thank you so much to our seniors: Alexus Sanders, Leanna Eison, Ashelyn King, Sammy Strubeck, and Savannah Johnson for their hard work, dedication, and commitment to the basketball team!
