Lady Green Wave out to strong start
The Lady Green Wave basketball team is out to a 2-0 start after scoring more than 60 points in both of its first two games.
Summerville opened the season Dec. 3 with a 61-36 win at Wando. The Lady Green Wave then won its home opener Friday, topping Berkeley 65-36.
“At Wando everyone played well,” Summerville coach Matt Legare said. “We were dialed in and focused. We played good defense and moved the ball around.”
Senior Heather Chapman scored 18 points for Summerville while senior Zuri Green scored 14 and junior Ashley Green scored 9.
Chapman again led the Lady Green Wave scorers Friday, putting up 25 points on Berkeley. Both Zuri Green and Ashley Green hit a three-pointer in the game and finished with 12 points each.
Alyayah Jones led the Lady Stags with 8 points and Tori Ishmael added 7 for Berkeley.
“Tonight we struggled with our focus,” Legare said after the Berkeley game. “Everyone played hard, but they didn’t all play their best. Heather really helped push us through some rough spots.”
Summerville has two road games this week, at West Ashley Wednesday and at Hanahan Saturday. The team returns home Dec. 17 for a rematch with Wando.
