Goose Creek – The Lady Wolverines of Woodland defeated the Bamberg-Ehrhardt Lady Red Raiders 56-26 Tuesday night to move to 2-0 in region 5 AA and set up a battle with undefeated and top ranked Barnwell (12-0/2-0) for the region lead.

Head Coach Tamara Washington is excited for the opportunity ahead, “This game is what you practice and play for, an opportunity to play the best. Barnwell is very athletic and they have played well all year but I like our match ups. I think we are as athletic as them so this should be a fun up and down game.”

She continued, “One of our program goals is to win Region 5 and we have an opportunity to take control Friday night. I believe we are playing our best basketball and our chemistry continues to get better each game.”

Woodland is currently 9-7 after winning three straight and they appear to be peaking at the right time. Offensively the Lady Wolverines will present a the biggest challenge they have faced all year.

Barnwell has been outstanding on the defensive end of the court allowing only 30.5 point per game. They average 47 points a game and are led by sophomore Maleah Williams and senior Anajae James. The Lady Wolverines will have to keep an eye them as they both average 10 points a game.

The Lady Wolverines will counter with three seniors who rotate in and out of the starting lineup in small forwards/ wings Teona Goodwin and Janiah Washington and guard Nyra Govan.

 Juniors Tylieah Smith and Diamond Smith and forward and Ronda Simmons will allow Coach Washington to apply pressure all over the court.

Rounding out the players who have started are sophomores guard Kimani Green and forward Tyleah Moorer.

The rest of the Lady Wolverines are senior guard Mercedes Ravenell, juniors guard Monica Hayes and center India Reed and sophomore guard Tay Russell.
