Webbers Falls Bulldogs

BOYS

Coach: Jordan Garner

18-19 Record: 3-19

There’s a familiar face setting in the first seat on the Warriors bus as Jordan Garner takes the reins as head coach welcomed by the return of three starters to the lineup along with a change in classifications as the Warriors will move up to Class A competition.  Jake Chambers (5-11, Jr.) who averaged 17.4 points per game while distributing 4.5 assists will be back at point guard joined by Austen Carter (5-8, Sr.) and Daylan Jarrard (5-11, So.) to orchestrate Garner’s system of up-tempo style play. The ability to score at the rim will be part of the duties for Blake Wyatt (6-1, Sr.), Caden Dishman (6-1, Fr.) and Josh Mason (5-10, Jr.). “The hard work efforts in practice is going to translate to wins,” said Garner. “These guys are more than just eager to win, they’re willing to work hard to make it happen.”

GIRLS

Coach: Jerry Ward

18-19 Record: 25-3

On the heels of a trip to the Big House last year for the Class B state tournament, the Lady Warriors will reload its lineup with a continued mindset for success this year as Webbers Falls moves up to compete in Class A in 2019-20. VYPE Top 100 pick Samantha Shanks (5-7, So.) will once again be the energy in coach Jerry Ward’s attack as the sophomore point guard scorched opponents for 17.4 points per game while dishing out six assists as well as frustrating the competition averaging 6.5 steals and collecting 3.3 rebounds per contest.

Lexi Raskey (5-7, So.) who averaged 5.1 points and 2.0 rebounds as part of last year’s 25-win season will play a key role along with Morgan Carter (5-5, So.) who saw valuable minutes of game time action last year. Ward will complete this year’s lineup with Candice Griffith (5-5, Sr.), Kennedy Patterson (5-8, So.) and Cessina Kimberlin (5-9, So.) along with Brooke Ellis (5-4, So.) plus a trio of freshmen including Lindsey Pearce (5-5, Fr.), Bailey Haraway (5-5, Fr.) and Samantha Griffith (5-6, Fr.). “We’re young,” smile Ward, who begins his 24th year on the Webbers Falls bench. “Samantha is our only starter and will lead us again. The other girls got a taste of winning last year and now it’s there time to step into the lineup and continue our winning ways.”
