Chisolm Joins The Cougar Team


Coach Briana Chisolm, a native of Cottageville, S.C., will be joining the local Cougar athletic team as the new Lady’s Varsity Assistant Basketball Coach for Colleton County High . A recent graduate (Class of 2017) from Claflin University, Coach Chisolm majored in Sports Management with a minor in Business Administration and also played basketball. She is a permanent substitute teacher at the Colleton County High School.
Prior to coming back to Colleton County, she spent two years volunteering helping the young ladies in the community with basketball. “I decided to bring my gift and talents back home,” she said. “Nothing matters to me more than to see these young ladies be great academic leaders, improvement in skill areas, and gain self confidence.
“If I can make a difference in one child’s life, it will become a chain reaction.”
As a local coach, Chisolm says she wants to emphasize the importance of character, self-respect and discipline, time management, and being a leader on and off the court.
According to her, the local basketball team is currently working out on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s with an estimated 10 to 13 young ladies on the team. She says with a young team, it is “a process, but they are progressing every week.”Coach Chisolm says her philosophy is to “Teach one, to help one, to be the one.”
