Abbeville Basketball · Basketball Season Begins

Still basking in the glow of a third straight AA football state championship, the AHS staff, student athletes and fans alike are now turning the page to basketball season. As you can see, the site has undergone some changes and that is why there has been a delay in reporting on the beginning of basketball season.

Congrats to the Varsity Boys basketball team for defeating AAA Emerald High by a 57-52 score on Dec. 19th. It was the 2nd consecutive win for the Panther basketball team. Nine student athletes finished their football season on Dec. 2nd and then had their first basketball game of the season just six days later, a 69-39 loss at Elbert Co. The Panthers have dropped games versus Westside (63-57) and lost at home against Elbert Co (42-38). Their season record is 2-3 as of today. Also, tonight at 7:30 the Panthers will face McCormick, again, but this time in the Emerald City Classic. A tournament that spans three days. The winner will play Thursday at 7:30 while the loser will play Thursday at 4:30. Updates and details to follow. Here is a roster and a schedule for the 2017 AHS Varsity Boys Basketball.

The Varsity Lady Panthers are led by Head Coach Sonya Turman. The Lady Panthers are looking for their first win on the season (0-3), and their next game will be on Jan. 3rd. The Lady Panthers have a very young team and this season could be considered a rebuilding year. 11 of the 14 players on this year’s Lady Panthers team are Freshmen, and Sophomores. With only 3 seniors on the team, Coach Turman will be leaning on them heavily for some leadership and teachable moments. Here is the Lady Panthers Roster for 2017.

Da’Maya Ashmore Sr. – Kionna Agnew Sr. – Quashayla Elmore Sr. – Kahlyn Shuler So. – Maya Smith So. – Delilah Tillman So. – Aniya Belcher Fr. – C’Ariyah Brown Fr. – I’yanlah Marshall Fr. – Yosheria Martin Fr. – Hakeria Patterson Fr. – Jalisa Paul Fr. – Ty’Faberia Reid Fr. – Shauntavia Starks Fr.

The girls games, starting January 3rd will be played directly before the boys varsity games. Bookmark for more updates throughout the season, as well as wrestling updates and a baseball preview will be on the way asap.

God Bless and Go Panthers!
