Pamplico – It has been a tough season to date for the basketball teams at Hannah-Pamplico High School but a strong finish could land one or both teams in the Class AA state playoffs.

As of January 23, the boys team was 2-11 overall and 1-6 in region play. The Raiders picked up their first region win on January 21, beating Kingstree, 55-48.

The Raiders are a mix of seniors and underclassmen but have yet to get enough production to maintain any consistency.

Sophomore forward Cyrus Ellison continues to have a solid season, leading the team in scoring at 18.7 points per game. Ellison also averages 8.5 rebounds per game. He got his varsity feet wet as a freshman, seeing action in 12 games.

 Sophomore guard Davian Coaxum also puts up solid numbers, averaging 13.4 points,6.1 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 3.4 steals per contest. Coaxum also saw varsity action as a freshman, averaging five points per game while playing in all 25 games.

After the sophomores, the production drops dramatically. Senior forward Lane Calcutt is scoring about six points with four rebounds per game. Senior post Devon Mincey has averaged about four points and five boards per game.

Others contributing include seniors Javonte Davis, Javen McNeil, Victor Jackson and Javonte Ellison; junior Jordan Lawson; and sophomores Zander Poston, Jason Graham, Keenan Kelly and Keith Washington.

The girls team has also struggled to find consistent success, starting region play with six straight losses. The six seniors this winter include Elizabeth Turner, Mary Smith, Maddy Boyle, Hailey Rodgers, Anna Munn and Elana Watkins.

Other team members are Willanna Peterson, Hilary Williams, Mary Leslee-Moore, Karah Turner, Alaijah Daniels, Jakera Wilson, Ja’Mees Myers, Aliza Lowder, Isabella Davis, Sarah Calcutt, and Myashia White.

HSSR names two Raiders all-state

The High School Sports Report recently unveiled its all-state football teams for each classification and two Hannah-Pamplico Raiders made the Class AA all-state team.

Offensive lineman Devon Mincey and defensive back Jalen Jenkins were selected to the AA team. It was the second all-state honor for both players, who were also chosen to the South Carolina Football Coaches Association all-state team in AA.

Jenkins recorded five interceptions this season for the Raiders. Mincey also was selected to play in the North-South all-star game in December and is considering his options for college football.

The HSSR all-state football banquet will be on February 16 in Columbia at 4 p.m.
