Youthful basketball team struggling

A young and inexperienced roster has made for a tough season for the Ashley Hall basketball team this winter.

The team has only two seniors and three juniors and the result has been a 2-10 start to the season. The two seniors this winter are point guard Selie Feldman and guard Morgan Davis.

Doing most of the work in the post area are juniors Abby Clarke, Emma Reuther, and Anacapri Burke.

Sophomores on the roster include guards Penny Wallace, Nadiyah McGill and Lulu Grubb, along with post player Gardiner Willis.

Freshman guards include Raegan Propes and Ellie Barham, with eighth-grader Madison Hawes working as a backup in the post.

 The junior varsity team has had better luck, winning six of their first 10 games this season. Comprising this year’s roster are sophomores Maddie Krawcheck, Briana Jennings and Tatiana Jennings; freshmen Makayla Collins, Tre’Laya Capers, Lauryn Ferguson, Lexi Penny and Lulu Highfield; eighth-grader Lavinia Maybank; and seventh-graders Liv Hanson and Evie Walldorf.
