The varsity girls basketball team had a much improved 2021-2022 campaign. As the first year for Head Coach Clark Whitten and Assistant Coach Hunter Brown, the girls team won 14 games. They finished the regular season tied for 2nd place with Mooreville. The team upset Mooreville in the division tournament and played for the division championship, taking the state runner-up Tishomingo County Lady Braves down to the wire. The Lady Warriors came up short, but finished 2nd in the tournament, allowing them to host a playoff game. This was the first time the girls team had reached the playoffs since the 2015-2016 season. Unfortunately, they fell short to the South Pontotoc Lady Cougars, finishing their season 14-14 for their first non-losing record since 2015-2016. The team saw improvements and laid a positive foundation for the future.
The seniors on this year’s team include Zikaih Gwyn, LaZoya Howard, Yasmine Cuff, Kenyonia Rogers, Tiyonia Rogers, and Keyderiana Davis.
The Lady Warriors hope to build off the success from last year and continue to see improvement in the program. They are returning our coaching staff so familiarity is a positive, as well as having two starting players back. “We are excited about some of our younger players as they get their opportunity to contribute on the floor and lead our program,” said Coach Whitten. “We had a good summer and productive fall practice time. The division is a strong group of teams, so the Lady Warriors will be fighting hard to compete again with the goal of making the playoffs this season for the second consecutive time.”
