WMS GIRLS BASKETBALL SEASON FINISHES AT 11-2
By COACH SAMANTHA ISAACS and COACH JAZONTE HICKS Special to The Sun
That’s a wrap for the 2022 WMS Basketball season, and what an outstanding season it was for Wakulla Middle School’s Lady Wildcats! This year the team was headed up by Coach Jazonte Hicks and Samantha Isaacs, with a strong 12-member team. The Wildcats closed out their regular season 11-2. The girls qualified to compete in the conference tournament and found victory in their first round but ended their season with a loss against Crossroads Academy.
The team saw tremendous strengths from each athlete. The team consisted of 8th graders Destinee Avery, Za’Yieah Dawkins, Emily Kucklick, Makiya Cash, Amiya Varnado, Amariyah Donaldson, Shakaylee McCormick, and Shania Ransom. Zariyah Eglton, Myla McCarty represented the 7th graders, while Paityn Dailey and Kyleigh Bradley were the 6th grade additions.
Amiya brought in over 105 points through the season, followed by Myla with over 80. Amariyah racked up over 60 and Makiya with over 35. Each player contributed immensely to the team’s success on and off the court. Our athletes are held to high standards academically and as representatives in their school and community, and all of the girls have risen up to be those examples to their peers. This team has experienced exceptional growth this year, which is only possible through hard-work and team building. These girls set goals and put in the sweat-equity to see them through.
Congratulations on your season 8th graders, you will be missed. We know that you are capable of amazing things and can’t wait to see you on the courts in the future.
Way to go, Wildcats.
