The Halifax County High School jayvee girls’ basketball squad enjoyed a positive scrimmage Friday against Bluestone, and there are reasons for optimism regarding this year’s squad.

“Returning about half of the team from last year so we have a good mixture of old and new. This is working great at practice because the new girls are getting a lot of help. We played a good scrimmage the other day against Bluestone,” said coach David Graham.

Graham sees areas of improvement from a year ago.

“Our offense is much better and our defense also. We still are working on rebounding the ball. We have a great attitude in practice and are working well together. Our main focus is to improve and move (the girls) to the next level. (Varsity girls) coach (Wayne) Murray and his staff are unifying both teams to work together on plays and defense. He comes to some of our practices and supports the girls by helping coach during our games. This shows the girls he cares about them getting better everyday. His staff is very supportive as well and we are thankful for their (help),” said Graham.

The season starts Dec. 3 against border rival Person County.

The returning starters are Ghanija Gooden, Timmie McCargo, Alasha Edmonson, Nyjah Torain, and Mercedes Harriston. Freshmen Shadajah Davis, Malasia Boyd, Akia Guill and Faith Lester will add offense. McKenzie Francis and F. Ballou will help McCargo in the paint.

“They are also freshmen. Hopefully each can improve and get ready for the next level,” said Graham.
