Lady Drifters close out season in Regional playoffs

The varsity Lady Drifters (6-4, 15-9) basketball season ended last Thursday, with a 45-39 loss to Appomattox Governor’s School (8-2, 13-13). Ja’Kara White led Appomattox with 22 points, 13 rebounds, seven steals, and two blocks. Caneishia Fulcher posted 24 points for the Drifters.

Although Appomattox lost to the Rappahannock Raiders, 41-40 on the following Saturday, they earned a bid to play East Rockingham in the VHSL State Quarterfinals, at

James Madison University.

As for the Drifters, the 2011-2012 season will be remembered as  glorious. Their two-year run included a record of 32-15, including two berths to the Regional playoffs. During the regular season, the Drifters finished fourth in the Northern Neck.

Although the loss of five key members to graduation could arguably affect the team’s destiny next season, they Lady Drifters will inherit a junior varsity team with an appetite for winning regular season championships.

While some programs are rebuilding, the Drifters will simply be reloading with a different set of core players leading them into action.

Prior to the Regional semi-final game, the quarterfinal game featuring Charles City demonstrated a dominate Drifter offense that out-worked the Lady Panthers for four straight quarters.

In the first quarter, Jennay Shanklin rang up a three-pointer to start the scoring 48 seconds into the game. Minutes later, the Drifters posted a 14-8 run, that included two 3-pointers, and a jumper from Shanklin. Panthers forward, Hailey Holmes managed to score two baskets just before the buzzer, cutting the Drifter lead to 14-8.

As in the first quarter, the Drifters defense continued to suffocate the Panthers with mid-court turnovers in the second quarter. As the Panthers struggled to sustain a consistent transition pattern of scoring points, the Drifters accelerated the tempo of the game to a full-court, all or nothing paced game. The end result featured a 12-4 run, with the Panthers failing to score on two occasions at the foul line in the final seconds the quarter.

Caneishia Fulcher led the charge for the Drifters in the third quarter, as she scored 12 of the Drifters’ 16 points. By end of the quarter, the Drifters had built up an insurmountable 46-19 lead. The pace of the game had overpowered the visiting Panthers, who could only manage a half-court offense.

In the final quarter, the Drifters defense limited the Panthers to five foul shot opportunities, where they managed to score 50% from the free throw line. The game ended with scores from Daizha Turner, and Emily Parks.
