  1. Congrats Miranda!
    But Samantha Coffer is well over 1600 career points. Like Miranda, she is a 4yr varsity player. Awesome players who will go far in their collegiate careers

  2. Miranda is a great player and so is Samantha Coffer BUT Miranda is undefeted in confrence and will win Player of the Year in that confrence!

    Dont try to steal the young lady’s spot light come on people….

  3. Both young ladies are outstanding players/talents and it is good to leave it at that….Two of our very best in Guilford County in Miranda and Sam….

    Watch for a special sports feature on Miranda coming to FOX 8 Sports this week and it looks to be airing on Tuesday on each sports segment at 5, 6 and 11…..Check them all out and way to go Miranda……..

    We are all still looking forward to the next EG-NG meeting….

  4. EG,

    No way am I taking anything from Miranda, only correcting what was reported in the story. Calm down.

  5. Tashelle,
    The story is correct… Miranda did not start until the very end of of her freshman year at Eastern while Sam started the first game she played in there…..

    there is nothing to be corrected
