Cougars Continue to Dominate the Courts

The Colleton County High School Varsity Boys’ Basketball Team had a productive week as they faced Royal Live Oaks Academy on Tuesday December 12th at home and Bamberg High School on Friday December 15th at Bamberg. The Cougars secured a win during both games, which will lead them into two separate Christmas Tournaments. The first will be in the Woodland Christmas Tournament on December 20th, at 3:30 against First Baptist. The Colleton County Cougars will also be playing in the Orangeburg Sweet Sixteen Tournament where they will face Swansea High School on December 26th at 6:00pm at Bowman High School, a familiar team for CCHS Head Coach Smith who served as the Head Coach for Swansea High School from 2007-2010. Both tournaments will be played, while the players and coaches are on Christmas Break. Last week the Cougars kicked off the week against Royal Live Oaks Academy, where they dominated the court with a final score of 75-25. They ended the week as they faced Wade Hampton High School for the second week in a row, and made a comeback as they defeated Wade Hampton 72-37.

The Cougars kicked off this week competing against Royal Live Oaks Academy for the second week in a row. Junior Devon Farmer lead the Cougars in points during the game, with a total of 10 points scored. Closely following Farmer was Seniors Tristan Nieves, Tyler Gantt, Nyeem Green and Junior Javon Williams who all scored 8 points during the game. These points were instrumental in leading the Cougars to their final score of 65-11. The Cougars ended the week against Bamberg High School, where the Cougars were lead by Senior Nyeem Green who scored 32 points during the game, followed by Senior Tristian Nieves who scored 21 points. The Cougars ended the game 88-70, with the second win for the week. Seniors Tristian Nieves and Nyeem Green are currently competing for the number one spot as most points scored for the season for the Cougars as they continue to show strong leadership at each game. According to Coach Smith, “This week was the last of our non-region schedule. We are still trying to fine tune our offense and defense going into the Christmas Break.”

Although the school district is on break beginning Tuesday, December 19th, the Cougars have two special tournaments to get ready for; one before Christmas and one after Christmas. The Cougars will pick up their regular season games on Friday, January 5th against Ridgeland High School at home.
