Cheraw girls making a push

Cheraw— The Cheraw Lady Braves’ basketball team has found their stride after starting the season at 0-6.

Now, the Lady Braves are 3-7 overall but impressively have been 3-1 after that rough start with no wins in their first six games. Now comes the homestretch of the regular season where Cheraw can continue to gain momentum.

The Lady Braves have themselves poised to potentially make the playoffs now, sitting in fourth place currently in the region. The home stretch of the season will tell the tale.

Head Coach Rhonda Wallace said that her team has made tremendous strides since the beginning of the season.

“We are playing  as a team and utilizing our teams abilities,” she says. “If we continue to play as a competitive team, we will be in the top four (and make the playoffs).”

The Lady Braves have lost two seniors due to knee injuries and Wallace said that she would really like to see her younger players step up.

“At this point, the team is playing very relaxed, like a very young team,” she says. “We need to be more aggressive on defense, run the floor and call plays and run them correctly. 

The team has a number of key players who will be a part of the future improvement for the Lady Braves, including Callie Bryant, Harmonie Gearlds, Tianna Boatwright, Precious Gary, Brianna Helms, Ashanti Marshall, and Sintrell Brown.

The future also looks bright for the Cheraw team because many on the current team are freshmen and sophomores.

“The younger group is trying to find their fit on the team and floor,” Wallace explained earlier in the season

Wallace said that her goals for the team include getting better on offense and on blocking out.

“I would like to see each player excel in their own area of need and win (more) region games,” she adds.
