‘Played as a team and won as a team’
Prince Edward County High School’s varsity girls basketball team enters its home game Friday, Feb. 7, while enjoying its first three-game winning streak of the season.
This streak has taken the Lady Eagles’ overall record to 10-10, and Kimberly Price-Chambers, their head coach, noted they are ranked fourth in the James River District and seventh in Region 2A.
“(I’m) proud of our season thus far, but we still have a lot of growth to make as a team,” she said. “(We) definitely have the capability to be successful in the remainder of the season.”
Prince Edward won 40-16 Tuesday, Feb. 4, versus visiting Bluestone High School.
Price-Chambers said the keys to victory were good movement of the ball, great defense and outstanding teamwork.
“We played as a team and won as a team,” she said.
Leading the Lady Eagles in scoring were Kayleerae Folz, with 13 points, and DiNasia Scott, with 10.
Prince Edward edged Nottoway High School on the road Monday, Feb. 3, 36-35.
“Ke’Mya Rux got fouled and went to the free-throw line and made the clutch free throw,” Price-Chambers said. “The team did not panic.”
Rux finished with 16 points, and QyShauna Wylie made crucial contributions on the boards.
The Lady Eagles host Buckingham County High School Monday, Feb. 10, at 7 p.m.
Price-Chambers said she hopes her team enters the district tournament at 12-10.
