The Jackets got off to great start, posting 2 big wins in conference play.
Tuesday night, new comer, Granville Central came to The Hive to kick start the season. The final score was 55 - 25. Anna Vann led the way with 31 points. Elena Miller added 8, Michelle Stewart 6, Taylor Medlin 7, Cassidy Dickens 2 and Abbi Carpenter 1.
Game #2 had the Jackets traveling to Louisburg for our second conference contest in this early season. The outcome was very positive with a 60 - 21 win. The scoring was much more balanced, Anna Vann 16, Michelle Stewart 13, Abbi Carpenter 6, Taylor Medlin 7, Camden Bierbauer 3, Elena Miller 8, Kamryn Little 2, Janet Roberson, 3, Taniyah Greene 2. Every girl on the roster got significant playing time in this one.
Defensively, this team rock solid and has shown to be very aware of where each other is on the court. We are way ahead in the "team jelling" aspect of the game over last year's team. The core of last year's team has returned this year and we have some new additions that have all been impact full. We have senior leadership in Taylor Medlin, Camden Bierbauer, and new comers Elena Miller and Katina Lundy. The best news for this year's team is the addition of youth that has immediate talent and can contribute in the big games.
Jackets head coach Jim Whitmire stated, "We have a full 15 player roster and the future looks very bright for this program. Our team is solely focused on defending the conference championship."
The Jackets go outside of thier conference to host KIPP in a rare Saturday contest. The game is scheduled for 3:30pm. PLEASE come out and support the is team's efforts to bring another championship to RRHS. See you at the Hive.
