CSM women’s basketball Northern Neck connection

College of Southern Maryland 2010 Women’s basketball team (Back row, l-r)  Asst Coach Amy Gritzmacher, Shellby Matullo, Breanna Barnes, Tianna Payton, Amber Ferguson, Adrienne Lockett, Teshaun Greene, Head Coach Phil Hempfield, Asst. Coach Nick Owens. (Front row, l-r) Brittany Amaker, Tiara Greene, Ashley Warren, Ashley Farmer, Kichelle Winborne. Not shown: Kelly Fagan, Tyler Black

The Northern Neck has spread to Southern Maryland. College of Southern Maryland (CSM) women’s basketball is back and potentially better than ever. With Colonial Beach basketball legend Tianna Payton returning to the team, and the new addition of Adrienne Lockett added to the mix of playing with her former Washington & Lee teammate Ashley Farmer, life in the fast lane of collegiate basketball is about to become more competitive.

With King George resident and second year head coach Phil Hempfield building a foundation around the trio of Payton, Farmer and Lockett, the sky is the limit for the CSM team.
“They may not come from a winning program, but with the intensity that the Virginia players bring to the team will make the everybody else play harder,” Hempfield said during a recent basketball practice. “With Tiana coming back and Ashley leading the way, there is no limit to what our team can do.”
Hempfield’s coaching relationship with the trio dates back to their high school years while playing with the Swish AAU basketball team.
After missing the 2009 season due to medical issues, Payton is elated to be back and playing with team loaded with talent. Having Lockett and Farmer on the team has given Payton and added incentive to take the Hawks to the top of the conference.
“We’re all from the same area, and brought up the same way with basketball,” Payton said. “When I played here before, a lot of players didn’t have the same heart that I did — it was like a hobby to them — but to me basketball is another way of life.”
During her first year at CSM, Payton average 15 points and 15 rebounds a game. She aspires to attend a four-year school to pursue a nursing career after she graduates from CSM in the spring.
After playing (middle school, junior varsity, varsity) basketball in Montross, Lockett transferred to Stafford County to attend Brooke Point High School in her junior year. During her first year with Brooke Point, she had the dubious honor of subbing for Chay Shegog. Currently Shegog is a standout center for the University of North Carolina. While recognition for her talents eluded Lockett in her junior year, she quickly adapted to her new triple-A environment in her senior year to average 12 points a game. Lockett is a physical therapy major, with a focus on continuing her education at a four-year college.
After a tumultuous 2009 season, Farmer is confident that the entire cast of current CSM players will finally take basketball to an entirely different level than what it has been accustomed too. In a nutshell, at point guard, Farmer is the fuel that will keep the Hawk basketball machine competitive.


“This year’s team is more dedicated to the game of basketball,” Farmer said.
After losing six players during the start regular season, Farmer had to switch from passing the ball to scoring on a regular basis. Although she average 19 points a game during the second half of the season, her team struggled in the win column.
Other players who will give Hawk fans reasons to cheer are: Kichelle Winborne, Tiera and Teshawn Greene, and Kelly Fagan. The aforementioned players are unique with speed, shooting abilities and the intangible of blending their talents together to make the Hawks a force in the Maryland Junior College Athletic Conference.
Now that the team has experienced two scrimmages (Washington Adventist, Tidewater), they will be tested against Tidewater on Nov. 10 for their first regular season game of the year. The game will take place at CSM’s gymnasium; game-time is 6 p.m.
