Continuing to carry BHS offensively, Jayla Waller posted 17 points in the contest, followed by teammates Terrian Williams and Shemirika Manson with nine points each of their own.
“Jayla Waller, Terrian Williams, and Shemirika were challenged by the coaching staff this week,” Owens said. “They stepped up to the challenge and provided the leadership against Mary Persons.”
In the Bravettes’ last three contests the youth has begun to show in the team’s line up, but Owens is not worried, as he believes BHS has a bright future in women’s basketball.
“This year, we knew there would be some growing pains just because of our youth,” he said. “Like I’ve told many people, if you’re going to beat the Baldwin Bravettes basketball team, this is the year to do it; because we will be better in the future and we will close the gap on some of the teams in the region.”
The BHS basketball teams will be back in action on Friday at home against Westside of Macon, with the Bravettes starting at 6 p.m. and the Braves at 7:30 p.m.
