 Mullins girls ready for region showdown

By Neill Kirkpatrick

Goose Creek – The Lady Auctioneers of Mullins have played in the past two class AA state finals, winning in 2017, and with a veteran squad returning they are one of the favorites again this year to make another trip to Columbia.

“First of all, we simply want to continue to build on what we strive to do here at Mullins. We return four starters which makes it fun because we have a core group that knows the demands of a team. These young ladies will be willing do what is required to reach our goals,” said head coach Myron Gerald.

They currently sit at 9-5 overall but are 7-0 in region 7AA with a showdown Friday night with co-region leader East Clarendon (11-2/7-0). The game is the first of two meetings with this one being at home for Mullins.

“As we continue region play and head into the playoffs, it's always exciting to see who gets on track, peaks and is set to make to make run to Columbia,” Coach Gerald said.

Despite being a veteran team the Lady Auctioneers are a very young team with only one senior starter in guard and Captain Janell Sindab. She is second on the team in scoring at 13.8 ppg and second in steals and assists. She has been getting interest from DII schools.

The lone junior is the starting lineup is forward Tamiesha Lasane. She is a good defender who makes her presence known in the low post.

Two sophomores guard Kellie Friday and forward Jen'Lea Nichols have been solid all year. Nichols leads the team in all statistical catagories averaging 17.6 ppg, 9.4 rpg, 1.7 apg, 4.9 spg and 2.9 bpg. The sophomore standout is already getting looks for both DI and DII schools.

Friday is second on the team in steals at three per game and she chips in six points per contest.

Rounding out the starting five is eighth grader, guard Janiya Swinton.

Coming off the bench for the Lady Auctioneers are senior Tyarra Sanders, juniors Kamirah James, Antionette Reed Marketta Williamson and freshman Nykera Lewis. Sanders, James and Reed all average five points. This group provides a depth and allows the team to push the tempo.

“We want to always display a great work ethic, play hard on defense and play with a lot of passion,” said Coach Gerald.
