Experience is byword for girls basketball / November 27, 2019
The Halifax County High School girls’ basketball team has plenty of experience, and the team is assured a regional berth.

Here is the roster: Saviana Bailey, guard; Demeisha Canada, forward; Lauryn Easley, guard; Jakayla Gooden, forward; Shamya Hankins, forward; (captain); Dee Dee Jeffress, guard (captain); Grace Langford; guard; Talitha Marable, guard/forward; Amaya Mitchell, forward (captain); Dezhona Mitchell, Ella Morrison, forward; Lynia Reed, guard; Kayla Townes, captain; Kamyria Woody-Giggetts, guard.

“Coach (Sam) Edmonds and I are very excited about the team this year. We will be more experienced with all of our starters returning.The team this year will be led by Dee Dee Jefferies who is just short of 1000 points in her career by about 80 points. Daisy Mitchell and Kayla Townes will bring their experience and talents back for their senior year,” said coach David Graham.

Tremendous improvement will be seen this year by Ella Morrison, Meisha Canada, Lynia Reed, and Talitha Marable. They will be a very strong force to deal with this year.

“Each has improved on all phases of the game, and they are truly ready to play. We moved Shamya Hankins up who is a freshman, to help out in the middle with rebounding and inside points. We also moved Kamyria Woody-Giggetts up , a freshman also, to give us more speed on fast breaks and defense,” said Riddle.

“Also need to be noted is good practice work from Grace Langford and Saviana Bailey. Each is picking up the team system of play very well. We are looking to run more this year, be more aggressive on offense, and pressure the ball on defense. We want to give it all we got for 32 minutes and see what happens at the end. We have a very good combination of experience and youth. I think we have a very solid bench this year which will help our style of play,” said Graham.
