Really young Lady Knights roll

For an extremely young high school basketball team such as Knoxville Christian School’s Lady Knights, every victory is cherished.

Picking up its fourth win, KCS zoomed past Faith Christian Academy of Jamestown 47-22 Thursday, Feb. 10.

“Out of my starting five I have two middle-schoolers, two freshmen and one senior (Bri Wilson, the team’s only senior),” Lady Knights head coach Jada Chamblee said.

About Wilson, “She’s a presence on the floor. We can tell if she’s not there,” Chamblee said, as the senior scored five. “She’s my captain, so she leads them really well.

“Helen O’Leary, she’s a great three-point shooter,” the coach added about the eighth-grader, as Helen nailed three 3-point baskets and scored a game-high 15.

Only a seventh-grader, Rylee Bowling “handles the ball really well and she really comes through for us,” Chamblee said, as Riley scored seven. “I think in a couple of years she’s going to be something to see. … Her average is at least 12 points per game.”
