2013 Republic Bank Holiday Classic (Girls) Participating Teams

 

Allen County-Scottsville (Region 4)Coach Brad Bonds’ Lady Patriots finished 27-5 last season and are expected to contend for the regional title this season.  The Lady Patriots will be led by 5-11 Jr. Morgan Rich who is an athletic, versatile scorer.  5-9 So. Guard Savannah Gregory’s aggressiveness and high energy and 6-1 Jr. Holly Robinson’s ability to play inside or out creates match-up problems for their opponents.

 

Anderson County (Region 8)Coach Tony Kays’ Lady Bearcats finished 34-2 last season and should be one of the top contenders for state supremacy this season.  They will be led by the dynamic duo of 5-11 Sr. guard Makenzie Cann and 5-10 Sr. Eriel McKee both who are four year starters.  Cann is a deadly outside shooter and an excellent passer and McKee is virtually unstoppable in the open court.  5-5 Sr. Destiny Stewart is a savvy point guard and a three year starter.  5-9 Sr. guard Alex Avritt is a solid defender and 5-7 Sr. guard Jessica Rice is a solid contributor.  Other players expected to contribute include 5-2 Jr. Corrin Robinson and 5-7 So. Kaci Currens who has good range on her shot.  Anderson County has some tough competition in its own region but this team should be focused and if they compensate for the graduation loss of 6-1 center Kali Whiteside should be extremely difficult to beat.
