In this postseason, the chargers have had a very remarkable impression, but they are now looking more energetic to start on the right foot. Last year the team was bounced out at the very first round. On February 8, Westside Seminoles were lost by 59-49 in the region title game at Rutland High School. In the Playoffs, they will now be the no.2 seed instead of No.1, which eventually dig them into the gameplay to play more games on the road to success.
Even though now the chargers are 7-2 while they play away from their home. Appling county high school baseball team is becoming more powerful and energetic. There were some statements declared by the basketball coach Andre Taylor on losing to Westside.
The Coach Speaks:
The Coach of Appling High school Basketball team said “We learned a lot from the loss,” In addition to his earlier statement he also said: “We went into a game after we scored 101 and then 90 in a game, and then couldn’t score but 49 points, so they did a great job on us defensively. We must figure out how to match that in other games and we have to get the intensity they had. They played very intensely, and we couldn’t match it.”
Now the game is officially rolled over to the next round. The chargers will be hosting an 8-17 Appling County Team and this team will not be taking this game lightly.
Coach Taylor discussed many critical factors for victories.
Coach Taylor Stated “Defense”
“We have to be able to stop them. I think playing at home, we’ll be able to shoot the ball a little better than we did over in the championship at Rutland. So, it’s just defense, keep them from scoring, and keep them from getting second-chance shots and just trying to play at a faster pace.”
Rick Tomberline is back:
Also, Rick Tomberlin is back as the head coach in 2018, and now this time, he is back in Baxley at Appling County High School. In 2016 he took a year’s leave after taking Calvary Day to the playoffs. The time he passed by staying away helped him rejuvenate his passion and his dreams. As Tomberline says:
“I think there’s some restoration and renewed focus and enthusiasm there. I’m back coaching and that’s what I’m supposed to do and I’m doing it in my hometown. It’s good to be back and good to be doing it.”
