High School basketball practices begin for the boys and girls on Wednesday of of this week and they will be at it in earnest, with some big seasons possibly awaiting some of our teams….

The Page boys will return Ty Graves, Anthony Eaves, Xavier Hill-Mais and Jalen Gavin when he gets back from football and that will be a good group and Coach Abell has some other kids that are on the way in too….

The Wesleyan boys still have Theo Pinson, JaQuell Richmond, Donovan Gilmore, the Buckland kid,(Megan’s younger brother), but they will be without the services of Harry Giles(blown MCL, torn ACL) this season…

The Dudley girls bring back Essence Abraham, Makela Rouse and Kennedy Curry, but the big center Akela Maize will be at New Hope Christian Academy, with Delaney Rudd’s squad…

The Page girls will have senior Paris Kea, but they will be missing sophomore Bailey Kargo(ACL injury), but they will have her freshman sister, the younger Kargo…

Southeast Guilford has Kara Shutt to shoot the three’s and they have what Coach Shawn Newton calls the ‘Killer Bees’ to kick in the ‘D’ and run the outside-in offense….

*****Girls Metro 4-A will be among the best conferences in the state again this season with Page, Dudley, Southern Alamance and Southeast Guilford….*****

    Does anyone know if the big Morris girls is back at Southern Guilford?

    Kennedy Currie (High Point University)
    Makela (sp?) Rouse (Campbell University)

  • AnswerBo said,

    Kelena Morris is at New Garden Friends School according to sources and Arielle Ellis has transferred back to district School Northeast Guilford from Southern Guilford also.

  • Fan said,

    Southern girl transferred to New Garden Friends. They also lost the Ellis kid and a guard that was coming up from the JV squad that was decent.

    Can’t WAIT to see the Page boys play this year. If X can step his hand up as a center despite the lack in height, we could be real state title contenders.

    Don’t sleep on GDS either. Rebuilding year, but they recruited some real talent.

  • Dudley Fan said,

    Dudley Boys will be waiting for the Page Pirates…No Sam but much more balance and toughness this year!! Added some good pieces!

  • Fan said,

    Kristina King is headed to West Virginia.
    katherine Harris is headed to High point

  • Jack said,

    Isn’t Richmond going to U of Houston and not Baylor?

  • Andy Durham said,

    You may be right about that one, we will look and see for sure…..

    *****We adjusted to Houston…Deuce and Miller were at Baylor and it gets harder to keep up with all the kids once they start spreading out….*****
