Fulcher sisters: the pride of Colonial Beach

Throughout their athletic careers, Jomeishia and Caneishia Fulcher have played a huge role in the success of Drifter sports. From playing recreation to varsity basketball, the position of court general (point guard/shooting guard) has always been a part of their repertoire of skills.

Caneishia currently leads the team in points with 65, while averaging 9.3 points per game. She also averages 7.3 assists, 3.4 steals, 1.1 blocks, and 9.9 rebounds per game. Jomeisha has scored a total of 26 points, while averaging

4.3 points per game. Jomeisha also averages 2.5 rebounds, 2.7 steals, and 1.2 assists per game.

On and off the court, their sisterly bond is evident; however, their desire to win has no boundaries. Whether the Drifters are leading or behind, for four straight quarters, Drifter girls’ head coach Keith Dickerson can always depend on the Fulcher sisters to give 100%. “They have a sisterly bond—when one of them is down, the other picks the other up,” Dickerson said. “The love each other to death. They are almost like twins, and it will be tough losing Jomeisha to graduation.”

Although Jomeishia is a senior, and Caneishia is a junior, the sisters have been a part of the varsity team for the last three years. In light of her size, and long range for rebounds, and playing solid defense Caneishia was able to fit in the starting lineup during her freshman year. “They are both highly skilled, with the ability to play any sport,” Dickerson said. During their younger years, the Fulcher sisters were accomplished softball players on a travel team.
Evidence of the team’s ability to feed off the Fulchers’ all-or-nothing approach is the 2010-2011 season record of 8-2, 17-6, and their post season berth in the Northern Neck semi-finals.

It is crucial to the Drifters’ efforts to have both sisters in the game. Most recently during the loss to Washington & Lee (50-46), during a late Drifter rally, Caneishia fouled out in the latter minutes of the game, and the Eagles were able to sustain their lead and eventually win. “It’s not necessarily the best five players on the floor that will win the game,” Dickerson said. “We try to put the best five that play together, and those two feed off of each other.”

Between the two sisters, there is no competition. However, when it comes to being fearless, Caneisha holds a slight edge over her talented sister. “The only thing that separates her (Caneishia) from her sister, is that she has ice water in her veins,” Dickerson said. “She is not afraid of anything, and if she makes a mistake, her approach is so what.”

The very idea of losing is unthinkable in the minds of the Fulcher sisters. “You would think after telling Caneishia that we had lost, that someone had robbed your house, and stolen all of your games,” Dickerson said. “After each game, on the bus, Caneisha frequently asks what can we do better.”

While Caneishia and Jomeishia’s superstar brother, Longwood Lancer basketball player T.T. Carey has left a legacy of heroics within the Drifter sports program, his greatest influence may be his beloved sisters. “Having T.T. as a big brother has been a big influence on their love of the game,” Dickerson said.
