By Neill Kirkpatrick

Goose Creek – The Marion Lady Swamp Foxes picked up their third region win Tuesday night beating Aynor 61-11 and with a win Friday night at Cheraw (3-8/1-2) they will set up a battle of unbeatens when they travel to Dillon (9-0/3-0) next Tuesday night.

Marion currently sits at 14-4 overall and 3-0 in region 6 AAA play in coach Randall State’s first season. This despite moving up from AA to AAA this season. To the fans of the Lady Swamp Foxes this was not unexpected as they are coming off a lower state final appearance and returned several key players from last year’s 22-2 team. These young ladies know how to win.

Karahya McClam (5-6) is the team’s lone senior. She plays in the post and gives the team a lift off the bench.

Returning at point guard is Kelya Britt. The 5-6 junior led the team in scoring and steals last season. This season she is second in scoring at 10.8 points per game and blocks with six as well as assists with 17 on the year.

Juniors’ 5-6 guard Yamyzah Buey, 5-10 forward Alierria Rogers and 5-11 forward Precious Davis have all made contributions this season.

Two sophomores that have stepped up their games are 5-5 wing Mariah Moody and 5-6 wing Tonaja Lester. Moody has increased her scoring average to 13.4 points per game from 8.4 as a freshmen. She is also the team’s top three pointer shooter.

Lester’s scoring average is up 1.5 points per game to 10.8. She is the team’s leading free throw shooter.

Sophomore forward Kimbrie’l Barnes (5-10) leads the team in rebounding at 3.5 per game.

Freshmen Destiny Allen has made her presence known as she is third in rebounds with 40 and second in steals with 22.

Sophomore Jakina Wright a 5-7 wing player and freshman Yazmie Howard 5-7 guard have both provide solid play off the bench for coach State.
