Road to Redemption…..
Wayne Memorial girls basketball team started it’s season with a story line that would rival most New York times Best Sellers. Last year this time, The lady Zebras faced the super loaded yellow jackets in the same hostile environment with a not so welcoming outcome(lost by 19). This year, with the maturing of some key players, and a performance from a special player, the Zebras would position themselves to change the result. From the beginning, both teams came out swinging as their resume would suggest with Country day jumping out to a 13-10 lead going in to the second. The Second quarter would prove to be another grueling eight minutes with 3 lead changes and a grand finale of All State guard Camree’ Clegg making a 3 pointer to give the zebras a 1 point lead going into the half. The 3rd quarter was another haymaker filled 8 minutes with Clegg and Terry providing the offense. The showdown between the State’s two top players would provide a level of excitement for the crowd of 400 plus as well. Logging all 32 minutes of the game, Camree Clegg proved to the fans that she is not only one of the top players in the state, but a strong case for the country as well. The Clemson Commit connected on 10 of 15 3-pointers while also registering herself in the exclusive 1000 point club. With the the clock winding down and the score knotted at 70, Jeanae Terry Drove the length of the court and found a surprisingly open Clegg as defenders collapsed on the junior. With 1.3 seconds left, Super guard Camree’ Clegg pierced the Yellow Jackets with a 3 pointer from the corner to close the chapter on the biggest win in program history.
Camree’ Clegg 41 points
Jeanae Terry 22
Notable contributions- Jayah Hicks and Jasmine Elder were rebounding machines as the two juniors combined for 25 of Wayne’s 39 rebounds.
Alana Broadnax provided a tough defensive spark off the bench as the junior guarded came in a gave a defensive effort that was more then praise worthy.
