Lady Wolverines Dominating the Court

Staff Writers: Brooke Ventura and Jacob Mims

Lead Story: As of press time, the Lady Wolverines were in the midst of yet another incredible season with a record of 19-3 and a No. 8 overall ranking in the state, according to MaxPreps.com. After dropping the first two games of the season to state powerhouses Norcross and Parkview, the Lady Wolverines reeled off 19 consecutive victories until losing a heartbreaker to Collins Hill (20-1, No. 4 in GA), 53-49, on Jan. 30. The team currently holds a perfect 14-0 region record with regular season games against Cherokee (2nd in the region), Sequoyah and Lassiter.

In Case You Missed It: In addition to the Collins Hill game mentioned above, the team was involved in two more absolute thrillers during the month of January. On Jan. 8, the ladies travelled to Wheeler and came away with a 66-60 victory in three overtimes. Then, on Jan. 16, the Wolverines defeated Creekview 57-56 in front of the home crowd.

Wolverine(s) of the Month: Senior guard Ashton Sutton scored nearly half of the team’s 66 points in the triple overtime victory against Wheeler earlier this month. Also in that game, fellow senior guard Chandler Sutton posted 16 assists in the victory. Twin magic? Maybe so.

Quotable: “Our goals are to stay healthy, win our third region championship, and win a State championship.” –Coach Crowe

When asked about the seniors on the team Coach Crowe said, “Having four seniors we expect great leadership from every aspect. They all have different roles and are very committed to making this year one to remember.”

Off the Court: The entire Lady Wolverine basketball team took part in the National Girls and Women’s in Sports Day on Feb. 1. Ashton Sutton was named the recipient of the Award for Showing Discipline at the event.

By the Numbers: The team has outscored opponents 1220-870 so far this season. That is a 350-point difference over the course of 22 games, 19 of which are wins. This means that the Lady Wolverines average margin over victory this season is roughly 18.4 points per game.

Looking Ahead: Senior night is at home against Cherokee on February 2 where four seniors will be honored. The regular season ends on Feb. 5 at Lassiter.
