Laurens— The Florence Christian Lady Eagles basketball team is looking incredibly strong and like a contender for a state title with a current record of 10-1 overall and 2-0 in the region.

Head Coach Neil Minton has his team hitting on all cylinders at the peak time of the season.

“If we get improving and playing with great effort, we have a lot of potential,” Minton says.

His team is tied for first in the region but that will change this Friday night, when Florence Christian takes on Wilson Hall, with whom they are tied for first place.

Despite the winning record and great season so far, Minton still sees areas of his team’s play he’d like to see improve.

“We need to eliminate our turnovers and improve in our decision making on the court as well,” he says.

He also pointed out that his team is doing a number of things well too.

“Everyone is sharing the ball and we’re committed to playing defense,” he says.

Zoe Cauthen is the team’s leading scorer so far, averaging nearly 13 points a game. The senior is also averaging over 10 rebounds a game.

Corley Keefe, a junior, is averaging almost 10 points a game and also is averaging over 3 steals a game, as well as over two assists.

Senior Madison Stewart is averaging 5.5 assists a game as a big part of the team’s unselfish play.

Kenzie Feagin is an eighth grader who is playing well beyond her years. She’s currently pouring in nearly eight points a game while also averaging two assists a game.

Kylie Stewart is sophomore who Minton pointed out is providing quality minutes from the bench. She’s currently scoring about six points a game and nearly six rebounds a game.

 Junior Brittany Williams is averaging around 7 and a half points a game and nearly six rebounds a game.
