The Port St. Joe Jr./Sr. High School Lady Tiger Sharks basketball team will open its regular season with a trip to Blountstown at 5 p.m. ET on Nov. 25.
Port St. Joe returns its top two scorers from last season, eighth-graders Brooklyn Quinn and Teiyahana Hutchinson who combine for over 500 points last year as seventh-graders as Port St. Joe earned a playoff berth with a second-place finish in District 4-1A.
After a good summer of 23 games the ladies are ready to get the season started, said assistant coach Tracy Browning.
This year’s team has no seniors or juniors and just three sophomores in Callie Fleshner, Morgan Gant and first-year player Jamarion Larry.
The Lady Tiger Sharks feature three returning freshmen from last year’s team in Hallie Jasinski, Khaliyah Johnson, and Maliyah McNair.
Four more eighth-graders are also in the rotation: Java Patterson, Destiny Gadson, Aliyah Johnson and Zakeriah Pittman.
Two big losses off last year’s team were Alyssa Parker, who graduated, and Maya Robbins, a senior who is concentrating on track and will not play basketball.
The team would like to thank Mr. Duren and the staff of Piggly Wiggly for allowing them to hold a bake sale last weekend.
Port St. Joe will be at home for the first time 4:30 pm. ET on Nov. 26 when Sneads visits.
Browning invited all to come out and watch the team play an exciting brand of basketball.
