Summerville – While competing in a balanced region, the winter sports teams at Cane Bay High look to earn their spot in the Class AAAAA state playoffs over the final three weeks of the regular season.

Region 7-AAAAA is balanced as ever in basketball and wrestling and Cane Bay’s teams will need a strong finish to be among the top four teams to make the playoffs.

The wrestling team is the defending region champion and is off to a 2-0 start against region competition this season. The Cobras are expected to get strong competition from Wando and Stratford within the region.

Returning as a state title contender individually is Raleigh D’Antico, who is one of the state’s top wrestlers at 106 pounds. Jacob Simmons is wrestling at 113 and Logan Kira is working at 120 pounds.

Collin Leeson wrestles at 126 and Thomas Lee competes at 132 pounds. Filling the roster at 138 is Jalyn McKeen while Latherial Calbert is working at 145. Austin Topping is wrestling at 152 and Ethan Gehling is working in the 160-pound weight class.

Carson Lucero (170), Tristan Rivera (182), Kilani Reid (195), Taylor Rivera (220) and George Cabrera (285) round out the starting lineup for the Cobras this season.

In basketball, the boys team, under the direction of first-year coach Jacob Smith, has won eight of their first 15 games overall and is 0-1 in region play. The program managed just three wins last season.

Freshman Kaine Moses is adding 7.5 points per game and sophomore point guard Rob McLeod contribute 6.7 points per game. Senior Laquane Smalls is good for 6.4 points per outing while sophomore Xavier Adams averages 5.3 points per game.

The girls team, coached by Ira Owens, enters play on January 21 with a 7-7 mark overall and an 0-1 record in region seven.

The team is getting solid and balanced production from a host of players. Junior Amya Henderson is the team’s leading scorer at 10 points per game. She also averages 4.1 rebounds per game.

Senior Milana Turner averages 8.2 points per outing and senior Aliana Gilmore is averaging 8.1 points while leading the team in rebounding at 9.7 caroms per game.
