Florence, S.C. -The Florence Christian School Lady Eagles of Coach Neil Minton are off to a 4-0 start to the 2017-18 basketball season. The Lady Eagles are hoping to better last years 19-4 record and take the SCISA Region 2-AAA crown. They will battle Orangeburg Prep, Wilson Hall and Laurence Manning for that title.

The Lady Eagles have opened the season with wins over Marlboro Academy (49-27), Robert E. Lee (68-38), Trinity-Byrnes Collegiate (52-49) and Pee Dee Academy (38-25).

Laurence Manning and Orangeburg Prep will try to hang in there. Zoe Cauthen is doing a great job on both offense and defense. She does well in the post for me. Corley Keefe has done well so far in the shooting and Madison Stewart at point guard does a great job in finding the players with open shots. She is averaging 6 assist a game.”
