Wilson Hall deep into basketball season

Sumter—The Wilson Hall basketball teams are well underway and are again hoping to make some noise in the SCISA post-season, something the Sumter area school is accustomed to doing.

The boys team, under the leadership of Head Coach Eddie Talley, has begun the season with a near .500 record with four wins in the first nine games. Coincidentally, the Barons finished the 2016-17 campaign with a .500 record of 12-12. Wilson Hall and Talley will look to improve as the season progresses and try to add to a storied history of four state championships for the Barons.

The boys opened the season back in November with a convincing 62-38 win over Williamsburg Academy. They then followed that up with 59-50 loss to King’s Academy.

Losses to Heathwood Hall, Hammond, and Pinewood Prep followed until Wilson Hall picked up a 53-46 win over Thomas Sumter on Dec. 8. Another match up with Heathwood Hall would have a different outcome than the last time the two teams met as the Barons came away with a 55-37 win.

On Dec 11 Wilson Hall edged Carolina Academy 38-35, followed by a loss to Palmetto Christian.

The girls basketball team at Wilson Hall, under the leadership of Head Coach Glen Rector, are currently 7-2 on the young season. Last year the Lady Barons were co-Region Champions and finished with a 19-7 record.

Wins this season for the Wilson Hall girls have come against Williamsburg Academy, King’s Academy, Heathwood Hall, Hammond, Thomas Sumter, and Carolina Academy.

The losses for the Lady Barons came on Dec. 9 against Heathwood Hall by a score of 49-46, and on Dec. 1 at Pinewood Prep by a score of 39-25.

The girls of Wilson Hall will plan in a Christmas tournament beginning on Dec. 28 in Charleston while the boys will return to action on Jan. 5 when they will travel to Northside Christian Academy.
