HI HAT – After finishing the 2014-15 season one game below the .500 mark, the South Floyd girls’ basketball team fared well during its summer season.
“We return all of our players from last year’s team,” South Floyd Coach Justin Triplett confirmed, during an interview after the Kentucky High School Athletic Association Dead Period. “Leighann Hall and Brook Potter are the leading scorers from last year’s team and will be our senior leaders. We also return Taylor Berger, who finished eighth in the state in rebounding with a 12.3 rebounds per game average last season. Other starters back are Cheyenne Light and Jessie Tackett. Reserves Brook Stumbo and Katie Moore showed the most growth during summer play.”
The Lady Raiders finished the 2014-15 season with a 13-14 record. Prior to a long stretch of winter weather, South Floyd had won eight straight games.
“With the growth from last season and an impressive summer, I expect us to be more competitive in the region this year,” Triplett added.
South Floyd is scheduled to compete in the Smokey Mountain Classic, J.P. Deaton Classic and 15th Region All “A” Classic during the 2015-16 season.
The Lady Raiders are slated to open the upcoming campaign on the road at perennial 14th Region title contender Perry County Central on Nov. 30.
