Summerville – In terms of wins and losses, most of the fall sports teams at Cane Bay High would have preferred more success during the challenging season of 2020.

Nonetheless, the athletes and coaches were thankful to be able to compete in athletics this fall, mostly without a hitch.

When the all-region lists for fall sports in region 7-AAAAA were announced, a handful of Cane Bay athletes were included and recognized as being among the best in their respective sport.

The football team managed just two wins this fall but three players were named all-region. Cobra selections included running back Leon Staley, linebacker Sean Price and defensive end Deondre Smith.

In volleyball, all-region selections were Kaleigh Humphreys and MiKayla Blanco.

Alisa Haase earned all-region honors in cross country while Kristina Rydborn and Greta Oswald were selected in girls tennis.

The end of fall sports signals the beginning of the winter sports of basketball and wrestling. As was the case in the fall, the winter sports season will be ever-changing as the Covid-19 virus affects various schools and programs.

The season is underway in basketball as the boys team is off to an 0-3 start while the girls team has one win in their first three outings.

The boys team is rebuilding a bit this season with a host of underclassmen dotting the roster. There are five seniors, however, led by guard Xavier Adams, forwards Jordan Avent, Isaiah Junious and Kendell London, along with post Ashton Krol.

Junior guard Rob McLeod is the top returning player as a starter. McLeod is leading the team in scoring early on at about 9.0 points per game. Other juniors include center Rishard Winfield, guard Christian Smith, center Jonquin Yates and forward Charles Bennett-Shaffer.

Rounding out the roster are sophomores Omari Johnson and Kimarje White, both guards.

The girls team has just one senior but has a talented group of underclassmen in the mix. The lone senior is guard Amya Henderson, who is averaging 13 points and 4.7 rebounds early on. Henderson had an 18-point effort in a loss to fourth-ranked Summerville.

Sophomore Alaina Nettles will be a player to watch this season. Nettles is averaging 13 points per game, including a 20-point, 17-rebound performance against Fort Dorchester. She is pulling down 10.3 rebounds per game early on.

Sophomore Ryian Howard is scoring 5.3 points and junior Tatum Carr is adding 6.7 points per game.

Other juniors include Jamiah Davis, Jara Medina, Skyler Casto and Emani Williams. Sophomore Lauren Thomas and freshman Emma Franke round out the roster.
