Lady Caps continue to roll

The Broughton Lady Caps basketball team continues to roll on the basketball court with a 8-2 conference record, 12-6 overall. The Caps have won six games in a row and will face their undefeated rival, Millbrook on Friday.

“One of our biggest goals of the season is beating Millbrook”, said junior Brittney Smith, “We felt like we played a decent game against them at their home court, but we left a lot of room for improvement.”

The lady Caps are not only succeeding on the court, but having a great time doing it.

My favorite part of this season has been building a tremendous bond with my teammates and coaches”

”, said Smith, “the bond we all have off the court really helps us on the court as well.”

With 37 points in their win over Green Hope on December 2nd, 30 points against Wake Forest on January 23rd, and 34 against Leesville on January 27th, starting point guard Kaila Ealey is averaging 26.9 points per game this season.

“She’s a great leader, and so talented”, said Smith, “With her being a year older than me I can really look up to her and learn a lot from her leadership and game in general.”

Coming off of a 20-4 season, the lady Caps were devastated when losing in the third round of last year’s state playoffs.

“It was really disappointing”, said senior Josie Rouse, “we had so much talent, and we knew we had such a good chance to go all the way”

Though disappointed, the lady Caps would keep their heads high and use their disappointment as motivation into the next season

“We lost a lot of talent last year”, said Rouse, “but the team no doubt has more chemistry this year and we’ll use that to our advantage. We have high expectations and know we have what it takes to achieve our goals.”

The Lady Caps have five regular season games remaining and are second in the Cap-8 conference, two games behind Millbrook.
