CPA JV Hawks fall to Thomas Heyward
The JV Lady Hawks lost 21-17 to the Rebels on Nov. 24. Coach Nicole Cain said that they played well considering they have only been able to practice as a whole team 4 or 5 times.
Langley Harter led in scoring with 10 points and Heather Davis contributed seven. Cain says that Thomas Heyward is always a tough opponent.
Lady Hawks lose by one
The season opener for the Varsity Lady Hawks ended with a disappointing loss to Thomas Heyward by one point, 42-43. Colleton Prep led early in the game 9-1, but THA outscored the Hawks in the second quarter 17-3.
CPA came back out after halftime with momentum and outscored the Rebels 30-18 in the second half, but it just wasn’t enough.
Lexie Murray faced an injury but bounced back and continued to play well. Shelly McDonald’s last second shot rolled around the rim and wouldn’t go in.
McDonald led the team in scoring with 22 points and 11 rebounds. Murray contributed 4 points and 6 rebounds. Marla Strickland had 5 points, and Penelope Tuten, 2 points, 5 rebounds with 2 steals. Anne Garrett Carter contributed 6 points, 3 steals and 5 rebounds. Meredith Ware ended the game with 3 points, 3 rebounds and 2 steals.
Cain said, “We have a few things to work on, but I’m anticipating a very successful season from these girls!”
Next game is Dec. 7 at home against Bible Baptist at 5 p.m.
War Hawks fall short finishing with four
The War Hawk varsity boys lost a game that they “should have won,” said Coach Barry Morehead. The season opener ended up with a loss, 54-63.
Morehead said that the guys, “have worked hard and we did a pretty good job on both ends of the floor until we ran out of players.”
CPA lost Dylan Causey to injury. Morehead said, “He is an important part of what we do, so that is a big injury.”
Then three starters fouled out before the end of the game, leaving only four players to finish the game.
Morehead said, “That is the first time I can remember finishing a game with less than five on the floor.”
Tyler Westbury sat out a good part of the first half with two fouls. Morehead had to put Josh Craven back in for the third period with one foul left.
Morehead says that the team should be at full strength next week. “We have the potential to be pretty good I think.”
CPA boys’ next game is Dec. 7 at home against Bible Baptist at 6 p.m.
