Lady Jets post 40-2 record in June

CROSSVILLE — The 2014-2015 CCHS Lady Jets basketball teams — varsity and junior varsity —  recently travelled across the state during June,  participating in multiple team camps and chalking up several “Ws."   

Graduating only one player, Rebekah Teeple,  from last year's District 6AAA championship team with an overall 28-6 record, the Lady Jets “claimed victory” over the challenges they encountered at the multiple team camps they attended. 

The Lady Jets headed to team camp with three upcoming seniors – Gina Dick, Victoria Lee and Skylar Vanwinkle, six upcoming juniors – Makenzie Iles, Courtney Smith, Alli Hyder, Kelsie Eldridge, Madison McLaughlin and Bailey Davis, and 11 upcoming sophomores — Destiny Carlton, Klaire Varney, Sydney Clark, Lindsey Norrod, Hannah Brown, Lexi Lee, Beth Dyer, Emily Pugh, Mattie Hinch, Kali Turbett and Bekah Capps.

In addition to the returning players from the 2013-2014 roster, the team also includes student-trainer Madison Wyatt and managers Mary Beth Maxwell and Jalen Holt  

The Lady Jets also added four freshmen to the 2014-2015 roster — Sarah Buckner, Sydney Tabor, Marce Kerley and manager Hannah Andrews. 

The Lady Jets began their  team camp schedule at David Lipscomb University,  followed by trips to Middle Tennessee State University and  to team camps at Midway and William Blount. 

The Lady Jets played multiple games at Tennessee Tech University's team camp and they concluded their June schedule by hosting their annual team camp at CCHS. 

The varsity team finished June with an overall record of 20-1, including a close 51-48 victory over Science Hill and a competitive battle in their 59-60 loss against Dickson County. 

The Lady Jets varsity team chalked-up  additional “Ws” with their close 48-42 victory over Heritage, a 58-33 victory over Sevier County, an impressive 64-29 victory over Jackson County,  a tough 51-46 victory over Livingston, a 57-26 victory over Seymour, a physical 44-26 victory over Forrest and an impressive 41-31 victory over Ensworth. 

The Lady Jets JV Basketball Team, coached by Andrew Miller, concluded their team camp schedule with an impressive 20-1 record with victories over David Lipscomb, Livingston, Hendersonville, Jackson County and Heritage. 

According to Coach Radhika Miller, “The summer is not about wins/losses,  it's about team unity, competition and execution.  However, it was awesome to chalk-up some 'Ws' against tough competition in close game situations."

The 2014-2015 Lady Jets basketball team will return to action in early November.  Until then, the team will work diligently and relentlessly to empower their strengths and improve their weaknesses. 

“This is an extremely competitive team that clearly defines the meaning of a team.  They are unselfish, they are aware of their own strengths and weaknesses, and they demonstrate respect for one another. They are inspiring to watch and coach," said Coach Radhika Miller. Thank you Cumberland County and thank you to all the CCHS fans for always showing your Jet pride and support.  Season tickets are available for the upcoming 2014-2015 CCHS basketball season.  Please contact Coach Radhika Miller for more information (931) 337-1559.
