Weisenborn’s Eighth Grade Lady Warriors dehorn Elks
December 19, 2014
And some critics said “it couldn’t be done!” Many can think back over the years and count how many times Lady Warriors basketball has been able to take down one of the top competing schools—the Centerville Elks—but the Eighth Grade girls basketball team showed up Tuesday night and took the Elks by the horns!
Historically, the Lady Warriors have always ended up with one more “L” in the “Losing” column, but history is in the midst of change and eighth grade girls basketball is spear-heading a boost to the girls basketball program in Huber Heights.
On Tuesday, Dec. 9, the Eighth grade girls fell to Centerville Gold 30-29. A last minute three-pointer by the Elks Kemp gave them a one point advantage with less than two minutes remaining in the fourth quarter and a Warrior turnover cost them the game.
However, on Tuesday, Dec. 16, the Lady Warriors responded to Centerville (BLK) by dominating the floor from start to finish outscoring the Lady Elks 46-25. An outstanding performance by both teams, but the Lady Warriors effectively introduced themselves and took the “W.”
Olivia Trice led the Lady Warriors with a double/double scoring 18 points, owning 20 rebounds and three blocks followed by returning Warrior Destiny Bohanon with 16 points, five assists and two steals. Rachelle Bondurant added eight points and Kenady Moreland and Hope Arnold, both added two points each.
“The entire bench played a role on the floor, whether it was on the offensive end or the defensive, they pulled together, played smart and earned the win,” said Coach Kellie Kenniebrew. “I couldn’t be any more proud of what these girls were able to do, what I know they can do, and I hope that the Huber Heights Community rallies around them as they push forward in the season.”
The girls basketball program is shaping itself with a new program, new talent and a new outlook. The Eighth grade girls basketball team is eight members deep and carry the effectiveness of a full bench which will surely entertain any spectator, according to Kenniebrew.
The next home game will be Thursday, Jan 8 against Morton Middle School at Weisenborn.
