Florence— The Florence Christian girls basketball team continues to be on fire this season, undefeated after their first ten games.

“We have played really well the last five games,” says Head Coach Neil Minton, “We are playing hard on the defensive end and have started hitting shots more consistently. We have to continue to cut down on turnovers and rebound better.”

Minton pointed out that Senior Corley Keefe has played extremely well in all facets of the game.

“She and Freshman Kenzie Feagin lead our team in scoring and both have really been shooting well from outside.”

Keefe averaging nearly 14 points a game and Feagin is averaging a little over 14 points a game.

Junior Kylie Stewart continues to play outstanding defense and keeps the team playing fast. Brittany Williams is playing well on the post, averaging almost eight rebounds a game. 

And what does the Florence Christian team hope to accomplish this season? Minton said his team has set a number of goals.

“We would love to compete for another region championship and region tournament championship and position ourselves to go as far as we can in the playoffs,” he says.

The boys team, led by Head Coach Clay Bochette, is pushing to get back to .500 and make a late push for the post season.

Freshman Emekah Johnson is leading the team in scoring, hitting for nearly ten points a game. Another leader in scoring is Clayton Bochette, who is averaging almost nine points a game.

 Johnson also leads the team in rebounding with almost six rebounds a game. Junior Robbie Jordan is second on the team in rebounding with 4.5 a game.

Coming up for Florence Christian include games agains Thomas Sumter, Trinity Byrnes, Wilson Hall, and Lawrence Manning.
