Dorchester Academy ready for rematch with Colleton Prep

By Neill Kirkpatrick

Goose Creek – Back on December 4th, 2018 the Dorchester Academy Lady Raiders suffered their first loss of the season at Colleton Prep when the War Hawks outscored the Lady Raiders by 9 in the fourth quarter to win by one 55-54.

Friday night the Lady Raiders (11-2/7-1) will get a chance to exact revenge when they host the Lady War Hawks with the region lead on the line.

Despite the 11-2 record the Lady Raiders have struggled at times to play with the consistency that head coach Callie McClure expects.

“Our theme for the year is for the girls to surprise me every night,” said Coach McClure. We started the year really but lately we have lacked focus for the entire game. We have struggled to be consistent and we need to find it before the playoffs begin.”

Coach McClure continued, “This team is well rounded and has the ability to make a run in the state playoffs. We just have to play for four quarters.”

The Lady Raider are led by forward Elizabeth Huff. She averages as double/ double scoring 13.5 points per game and averages 11.8 boards a game. Both lead the team. She also leads the team in blocks with 39 and is second in steals with 37.

“Elizabeth can do it all and when we need a big score we look to her,” Coach McClure said.

Lydia Hofstetter has also stepped up in the low post and provides another option. She can also step out and shot the three. She averages 9.8 points per game and 10.2 rebounds. She does lead the team in assists at 3.2 a game and is tied for second in steals with 37.

Also providing help in the low post is Savanna Shelton. She also averages 10 boards a game. She is one of the top defenders on team and when needed she put the ball in the hole.

Huff, Hofstetter and Shelton are the team’s tri-captains.

The team leader in assist is Savanna Varn. She drops 3.1 dimes a game. She average 8.7 points per game.

Vivian Weathers and Laura Singletary have also seen time in the starting lineup.

 Rounding out the Lady Raider lineup are Peyton Myers, Maura M. Weathers, Cassidy Gruber and Grace Judy.
