MCHS JV Cowgirls’ basketball round-up

So far, the season is a great one for the Madison County High School JV Cowgirls basketball team. Although their first game held on Monday, Nov. 9 against Aucilla was a tough loss with a score of 41-18, the JV girls continued to push on, using that loss as motivation to do better. On Wednesday, Nov. 11, the JV girls faced off against the Columbia Tigers at 6 p.m. and really hit them hard. T'keriston Brown was the leading scorer for the game, scoring 18 points. Brittany Kinsey scored 13 points, with Ken'neatha Newsome scoring nine points. Te'zajahia Miller and Makeela Hawkins both contributed with three points, and Keiariel Livingston and Racandra Smith both scored two points. The Tigers were defeated with a final score of 52-27. The Cowgirls' victories didn't stop there; on Thursday, Nov. 19, they took to the court in a home game against the Wakulla War Eagles at 6 p.m. and dominated during all four quarters; Once again, Brown was the leading scorer and scored 10 points, with Kinsey and Miller both scoring six points. Chyna Frazier, Tamya Simmons, Ta'miyah Barfield, along with Newsome, Livingston and Smith, all scored two points. Ultimately, the Cowgirls won with a fantastic win of 40-17. The Leon Lions also suffered a hard loss as the Cowgirls took them on with full force on Saturday, Nov. 21 at 2 p.m. in a home game. Brown led her team again, scoring a total of 11 points, with Livingston not far behind with a total of 10 points scored. Newsome and Kinsey contributed with eight points each. The Lions fell hard to MCHS with a final score of 52-10. Before Thanksgiving break, the Cowgirls had one more game on Monday, Nov. 23 at 5:30 p.m. against the Aucilla Christian Academy Lady Warriors. Despite their previous loss to ACA in their first game, the Cowgirls took on ACA with confidence and perseverance, with Brown scoring a total of seven points and Kinsey scoring six points. “JV started out on a 12-2 run first quarter,” said Head JV Coach Lashon Arnold. “We started slacking on defense and not taking care of the basketball.” However, the game took a huge turnaround, and although the score was close, the Cowgirls came out on top of ACA, winning with a final score of 29-25. Arnold was very proud of the win against ACA. “I always tell the girls to play hard and give your best,” said Arnold. Judging by their winning streak, it seems the Cowgirls did just that for their first few games of the season. Their record is currently 4-1. Fans can only hope the season will continue to go in MCHS' favor. The JV Cowgirls will play their next game on Saturday, Dec. 5 at Lowndes in Valdosta at 4 p.m. Come out and support the Cowgirls. IMGP3044
