Central JV girls grew as a family

Central High School’s junior varsity (JV) girls basketball team closed out its 2019-20 season with 34-17 road loss to William Campbell High School.

“Definitely not the way we planned on ending the season,” Lady Chargers Head Coach Brittany Boswell said. “We could’ve played better, and it wasn’t our best shooting night. However, I’m still proud of them.”

Eighth-grader AnGeLeka White-Freeman led her team with seven rebounds, five steals and 66% shooting from the foul line.

Central finished the season with an overall record of 2-14, which included a 2-12 mark in the James River District.

Reflecting on how she felt overall about her team’s performance this season, Boswell led with the word “accomplished.”

“We may not have won many games, but we grew as a family and worked together as a team,” she said. “That made the season enjoyable.”

She said her team’s best game was its 31-14 home win over Randolph-Henry High School.

Boswell praised White-Freeman, Amyrika Lewis and Santee Dow as standouts.
