The Huntingdon Lady Hawks basketball team opened the season with a game against LaGrange College on Nov. 21. Although down by nearly thirty points at halftime, the Lady Hawks battled back and lost a nail-biter at 60-59 as the horn blew.

Head Coach Lisa Donaldson is proud of her young team and its record to date. The Lady Hawks are led by senior Whitney Eaton of Decatur, Alabama, who was named an All-Region Assist Leader for several weeks last season. Senior Amy Rachel of Troy is also a returning leader. Outside shooing has high percentages led by Rachel, Eaton, and freshmen Erica Hammonds of Hayneville and Carly Nichols of Sprott. Shooting strength is also attributed to freshmen Kathleen Madaris, of Hope Hull’s Hooper Academy, and Jami Barlow of McKenzie, Alabama. LaTisha Trammell, a sophomore from Roanoke, Opelika freshman Lane Adams, and Chandra Williams, a junior from Montgomery, will play important roles in rebounding and scoring from the block. Their quickness at the post position promises to threaten opposing teams this season.

In fact, speed on the team has increased tremendously this year with junior Montgomery native Channa Williams and sophomore Graysville native Tammi Brasfield dominating in the fastbreak, and the talents of sophomore Julie White, of Robertsdale, and junior Arleshia Lane of Troy, in the backcourt. Size and strength under the basket are contributed by juniors Sharry Shirley, of Deatsville, Georgana Harmon of Sylacauga, and Glenda Motley of Prattville.
