Summerville – While the varsity boys basketball team at Cane Bay failed in their efforts to earn a spot in the postseason, things are clearly looking up for the program.

The varsity boys finished the season with an 11-13 overall record and just missed the state playoffs with a 3-7 region 7-AAAAA record. But, for the first time in school history, teams at all three levels (varsity, junior varsity and b-team) managed to post double-digit victories this season.

The team lost seven games by eight points or less under first-year coach Jacob Smith. The program has never had a winning season and won only three games last season. Smith will return nine players from this year’s varsity team and expects to challenge for a winning record next season.

The varsity team was led by senior forward Malakhi Stremlow, who led the team in scoring (12.8 ppg) and rebounding (14.2 ppg). Stremlow, along with senior DeAngelo Clark, were selected to the region 7-AAAAA all-region team.

Sophomores Rob McLeod and Xavier Adams were key contributors, each averaging about five points per game. Junior Keyshawn Birch also was a key performer for the Cobras.

The girls team, coached by Ira Owens, did earn a spot in the state playoffs. Cane Bay finished 4-6 in region play, good enough for fourth-place. They ended their season at 11-14 overall after losing to Carolina Forest in the playoffs.

Earning all-region honors were senior Aliana Gilmore and freshman Alaina Nettles. Gilmore averaged about eight points and eight rebounds per game, while Nettles averaged 9.7 points and 6.4 rebounds per game.

Junior Amya Henderson led the team scoring at 10 points per game. Senior Milaun Turner added 7.1 points per game and senior Khalryah McClennon averaged 6.3 points and 7.7 rebounds per game.

 The wrestling team ended as the runner-up in region 7-AAAAA. Earning all-region honors were Raleigh D’Antico (106), Jacob Simmons (113), Logan Kiro (120), Thomas Lee (132) and Jalyn McKeen (138).

D’Antico and Simmons advanced to the AAAAA state individual tournament. Simmons reached the finals before losing to finish as the state runner-up. D’Antico posted a solid fourth-place finish.
