Lady War Hawks Battle for a Win

Determination is what is driving the Lady War Hawks this week, as they have been pushing through long weeks loaded with tough opponents. On Monday, January 22nd the Lady War Hawks faced their first opponents of the week, Orangeburg Prep at an away match. The Lady War Hawks came out the gate fighting in the first half as they were able to secure an early lead and end the first half 25-14. During the second half, the Lady Hawks were able to maintain this lead ultimately scoring them their first win against the Orangeburg Prep with a final score of CPA 49 to OP 38. “It was a big win for us,” Coach Brown said, “We put it all together with outstanding defense and balance scoring from our starts.” The Lady War Hawks were lead during the game by Meredith Ware, who scored 17 points and had 18 rebounds, followed closely by Langely Harter who scored 12 points and had 5 steals, and Anne Griffin Carter who scored 9 points with 4 assists.

On Tuesday, January 23rd the Lady War Hawks had their only home game for the week against Beaufort Academy. Although the Lady War Hawks were coming off a win, Beaufort Academy was able to secure a quick lead, and led the Lady War Hawks by 14 points heading into half time. During the last few minutes in the game, the Lady War Hawks got a second wind but were unable to overcome Beaufort’s lead and were defeated with a final score of BA 45 to CPA 35. “It was a tough night for us, we just could not get started as the 4 games over 5 days took its toll,” Coach Brown said, “Beaufort came out a shot over 75%, they just didn’t miss. As I told the players sometimes this happens and all you can do is just keep playing and wait for it to balance out.” They were lead again by Ware, who scored 15 and had 15 rebounds, and Langley Harter who scored 12 points and 4 steals.The Lady War Hawks finished their week on Friday, January 26th as they faced John Paul II at their second away match for the week. John Paul II is currently ranked the #4 team in the division, with CPA currently seated at #12. Ranking didn’t stop the Lady War Hawks as they fought until the end, with a defeat that wasn’t taken without a hard fight. The final score for the game was CPA 37 to JP 40, as Ware shot a 3 pointer that fell shy of taking her team into overtime. “Our Region has 4 of the top 6 teams in 2A classification and we sit at 12 in the classification,” Coach Brown said, “Every game is a battle as the teams are pretty much even. We are the youngest team in the Region and we are getting better every day. We are preparing for the play offs and believe we will be a tough out for anyone.” An injury kept Ware from her usual top scorer position, but she was able to score 3 points during the game and had 16 rebounds. The Lady War Hawks were led by Langley Harter during the game who scored 16 points and had 6 steals, followed by Anne Griffin Carter who scored 12 points, 5 assists, and 5 rebounds.
