Wells Warriors sent all three levels to the CQL Football Southern Division Championships this year. The minor level lost to Marguerite Christian. Both the juniors and seniors defeated the Scott Scorpions to move onto the Super Bowl.
Two players graduated – Alexis Bane, who led L.C. Bird in three-point shots made and Tiara Washington, a strong inside player. Both started games last season.
Starling Jones and Taylor Mason graduated and were a big part of the team’s success rebounding. Jones was tough on the inside and could shoot while Mason was a tough, versatile player. Rebounding is an early area of concern for the Warriors with these losses.
Earl Hughes stood on the sideline near the end of the game Friday with a smile across his face, wearing a headset and making his “coaching” debut. The running back had earned it, blazing up and down Dutchman Field in near-freezing temperatures as Bird plundered the Atlee Raiders 46-10.
The Carver Cougars Cross-Country team made history twice this 2013 season. First, the girls’ Cougars Cross-Country team went undefeated this season, marking the third year in a row of completing the season undefeated and winning the Southern Division.
For the first time all season, L.C. Bird trailed at halftime when Hermitage led 7-6 Friday. Outside of the Lake Taylor game, no team had truly tested the Skyhawks for a full contest, either.
