Jr. Pro Girls Have Good Season

Southwest Georgia Academy’s Jr. Pro Girls Southwest Georgia Academy’s Jr. Pro Girls The SGA Warriors have had a great year again in Jr. Pro sports. This year the Jr. Pro girls, led by Coach Danny Doster, won the Jr. Pro Tournament bringing the trophy back to SGA.

The Junior Pro girls put in a lot of hard work during school and after school. “I have been blessed with a good group of girls that were willing to work hard during practice and also on their own time and that makes the difference,” said Coach Danny.

The Lady Warriors played six regular season games completing them with a 6-0 record. Then came the tournament in which the girls had to play two rounds, the first round being an elimination round where the girls had to face the Westwood Wildcats. The Lady Warriors came out successful with a 23-12 victory.

Next was the championship game, where the Lady Warriors faced the Terrell Academy Eagles. It started as a close game until the Lady Warriors came out after half-time and put the Eagles away with a 30- 17 victory, leaving the Lady Warriors with an 8-0 undefeated season.

“Our goal all year was not to win every game, but be successful in our definition, and if we can be successful in what we do winning becomes a by-product,” said Coach Danny.

The players that made up the championship team are the following. Starting with sixth graders are Emma Holloman, Grace Morgan, Annabell Adams and Emma Chapman.

The fifth graders are Ella Ashley, Rose Fain, Ashlyn Durden, Anna Grace Ginn, Sadie Sasser, Maggie Joiner and Emmalee Johnson. Coached by Danny Doster. The star of the team is simply “the team.”

Coach Danny would like to thank the parents, Coach Matt Dalrymple, the SGA Athletic Department and God for having this opportunity.
