2020-2021 Lady Generals.jpeg

Back Row (L-R): 35 Annslee Nichols, 24 Emily Rose, 21 Kylee Shannnon, 55 Kena Ward, 34 Abby Gilbert, 52 Jenna Creech, 2 Sammie Creech

Front Row (L-R): 23 Shelby Berry, 10 Eden Lakes, 00 Sienna Bowling, 15 Madi Marcum, 4 Natalie Carl, 20 Adycin Truett

“The Lady Generals look to kick off the 2020-2021 season on January 5, 2020 versus South Laurel at Jackson County High School.  After losing three talented seniors from last season, the Lady Generals look to reload and see some young talent step up.  Lone senior Emily Rose will return for her final season and will be looked to for the experience and leadership she brings to the team. Juniors Natalie Carl and Eden Lakes return for their junior season.  Both players bring experience for this young team.  Lakes will look to run the point guard position and Carl will look to continue to be a scoring threat from behind the arc.  3 sophomores fill the roster in Madison Marcum, Addison Truett, and Kena Ward.  Truett and Marcum will get their first significant varsity minutes this season and will look to help in the point guard and shooting guard positions.  Ward will return bringing the experience she has under her belt and looks to be a force in the pain.  Freshman Sienna Bowling, Jenna Creech, and Kylee Shannon have brought a spark thus far into the season and provide a spark for the future.  8th graders Sammie Creech, Abby Gilbert, and Anslee Nichols as well as 7th grader Shelby Berry add their names to the roster for the Lady Generals and have a great future ahead of them.
