“I could not be more proud of the effort our team gave us against Veterans,”

Lady Cats coach Kelvin Cochran said. “The lead changed hands two or three times in the final minute. The seniors on the team, who have been in the program for four years, have laid a strong foundation for the future. I am talking about players like Alexandria Carter, Tameria Leevens, Patra Parris and Beonka Madge. They were all leaders on and off the court. Carter, Levens and Parris were our co captains. We had great senior leadership all season.”
