Both of Summerville High School’s Varsity basketball teams are having a great season. The boys are 2-6 in the region, lead by Coach Long, and the girls are 5-3, under the leadership of Coach Davis.

The level of potential is very high for both teams, and hopefully they can make it far enough.

“The potential level is extremely high,” said Coach Davis, “First of all they need to believe in themselves and they will be able to achieve any goal of what they have set.”

Both teams believe they will make it pretty far in the playoffs.

“Our region is so strong, we are having to work pretty hard to make the playoffs” said Coach Long.

Other Dorchester 2 opponents are: Fort Dorchester and Ashley Ridge which are very strong and are rivalry teams.

“Our biggest opponents are Fort Dorchester and Ashley Ridge, they are rivalry games for us and you always want to beat your rivalry teams,” said Coach Davis.

Coach Long is very excited for the playoffs, and can’t wait to see how far they will go.

“I’m just excited to have the opportunity to play in a game where you win or go home and able to have a game plan and execute it properly” said Coach Long.

The girls had a major team improvement from last season. They have really worked hard, practicing three times a week in order to reach their goals.

“We are doing really well this season,” said Shelby Sanders, a senior Varsity player, “We have made a lot of changes this year to the way we play. The improvements have been huge this season. We all have a certain drive this year and truly want to win.”

The coaches goals have very high standards for themselves and their teams. Coaches work just as hard as their players in order to form a good team, and they must make sure to craft particular plays that will help them go up against other teams.

“My goal as a coach is for us to win the region championship, make the playoffs, win lower state and the state championship,” said Coach Davis.

Many players had favorite moments throughout season. Although they are focused on improving their skills in basketball, players still make sure to have fun during the season and bond with their teammates.

“It truly is hard to pick a favorite moment because we are constantly having fun and cracking jokes,” said Sanders, “If i had to pick one though, it would have to be our very first game against Hanahan. We set a really high goal and made it. I saw something that night that i hadn’t seen in my teammates in a long time and from there I knew we were going to have an amazing season.”
