Queens of the Queen City. I’m sticking with that theme. The Lady Wildcats of Clarksville are a tough squad to deal with. Scrappy and fierce, they claw their way through people routinely. Last year, this squad finished in the Elite 8, posting a 27-5 overall record, and going 7-1 in the district. They had a hard fought battle with Green Hill at the state tournament, losing by 10 to finish off their season. With last year in the rearview, these girls are ready to turn the page and start a new chapter. They’re hungry and ready to take the next step towards rewriting a new outcome.
Led by Coach Rush and staff, these Lady Wildcats are solid as they come. They have a balanced attack, scoring both inside and out. They are aggressive on the defensive end, using their length, size, and quickness to their advantage. Their mission this offseason was all about preparing themselves to get back to the “Glass House.” They know the road will be tough, but they are ready. With a solid non-conference schedule and of course competing with 4A Region foes, look for the Lady Wildcats to come out of the gate fast. 2023-24 season loading, look for these Cats to come out on top.
Here are some prospects for the Clarksville Lady Wildcats
(5’10/Sr./CG)– Let the accolades roll. ESPN No. 7 player in the country. Top PGH TN player in the 2024 class. Miss Tennessee finalist. Clemson Commit. Enough said. Dynamic ball player who is a multi-level scoring threat. Blessed with size and length, she’s just a hooper who loves the game. She moves like Kevin Durant, silky and smooth on the floor, she makes the game look effortlessly. Super tough kid. Heady ball player. She has a great feel for the game. Known for her offensive prowess, she doesn’t rest on the defensive end. Steals, on the boards, transition buckets, you name it, she has some contribution in the success of that possession. She’s on a mission this upcoming year. Her main objective is to take the crown with her team and finish as the queen as the top Miss Tennessee finalist. If I had a vote, she definitely would be nominated. Great prospect with a bright future ahead of her.
(5’6/Jr./G)– Solid all around guard who just gets it done. Has great court vision and knows how to whip passes through defenses. Plays with poise, doesn’t get rattled. Consistent from the field, she can knock shots down from various spots. Anticipates well on the defensive end, she has a knack for jumping passes, stealing balls, and making the extra effort plays. She’s an energy giver and her effort is infectious. Great team player who competes until the final whistle.
(6’1/Sr./F)– Blessed with size, she anchors the middle for the Lady Wildcats. Offensively, she is a bucket in the paint, knocking down shots in and around the painted area. She is big on the boards, attacking the ball in the air, securing it with two hands. She runs the floor well, creating space, getting easy buckets at the rim. Good in the pick n’ roll and pick n’ pop game. Great team player who has great hands and is willing to do the little things to help her ball club be victorious.
