Estill— The Patrick Henry girls basketball team continues to stack up wins, sitting on top of the region and getting ready for a post season push.

The girl’s team is undefeated in region play and Head Coach Belinda McCoy pointed out that so far things are going quite well for her team.

She said that over all her team is doing well at moving from game to the next and not losing focus.

Like any coach, however, she also sees areas in which she would like to see improvement.

“In my book we can always in our rebounding,” she says. “I would also like for us to be more consistent, which is kind of hard to do when you are young like we are.”

This coming Friday Patrick Henry will take on Colleton Prep and will be looking to continue their winning ways in the region. The state playoffs are next month on Feb. 20.

The team is made up of one senior, two juniors, and the rest of sophomores and freshmen.

Senior Caelan Taylor is not only providing good minutes on the court but she’s also providing good leadership as well for the younger players.

The two juniors on the squad are Stephanie Carillo and Abbie Wiggins.

 The sophomores for the girl’s team include Kaylee Bratcher, Saniah Sexton, Logan Cone, and Madelyn McKenzie.

Freshmen are Phoebe Gooding, Harper Rice, and Emory Priester.

Those currently logging the most minutes on the court for Patrick Henry include Taylor, Wiggins, McKenzie, Sexton, Rice Cone, and Bratcher.

McCoy said that she hopes that her team will continue to be willing to fulfill their respective roles.

“I also hope that we end up with a little bit more depth than we have had in the past as the younger players gain more experience,” she says.
