2011 High School Jamboree Recap - Ridgeway

from Commercial Appeal

Central girls coach Niki Bray, her team fresh off an emotional run to the AAA title last year, said the focus had remained good through the first two weeks of practice. And the Warriors, despite not using LSU-bound senior Danielle Ballard for the exhibition, appeared to show their usual brand of defensive mayhem in a 27-13 rout of Manassas, led by Georgia Tech signee Aaliyah Whiteside.

But Bray was not happy with the effort. “We seemed to forget everything we worked on for two weeks on defense. We haven’t even gotten to offense yet,” she said.

Overton’s girls, who have been to the state tournament the past three years, think they may have found a big piece of their puzzle with the arrival of junior Kelsey Briggs, the star of the Lady Wolverines’ 27-11 rout of a rebuilding White Station team.

“She’s a big guard who can drive to the basket, but also hit threes. She’s a big addition to a team the team that basically came back this year intact,” Overton coach Lynn Smith said.
