Holt leads Darton into region play

By Robert Hydrick - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Darton gets a chance to shake off the holiday food with two games this weekend.




The Lady Cavs are going to play the annual South Georgia Tech Holiday Classic this weekend in Americus.

With their last game three weeks ago, Coach Laura Blackwell knows her team needs back to back games to get ready for region play starting next week.

Darton entered the Christmas break with a 7-6 record.

Coach Blackwell says a big reason has been the play of sophomore Ashley Holt.

Coach Blackwell knows the former Cairo High Syrupmaid will continue to lead the Lady Cavs on and off the court.

Laura Blackwell said. "A starter for us at the point position, at the two position and she has even played down low. She is the type of player that just knows the game. At the time we need a turnover, we need a stop or we need a good basket, she has been able to produce for us."

 Darton plays Shelton State at 4:00 p.m. Saturday and Southern Union at 4:00 p.m. on Sunday at South Georgia Tech.

Lady Cavs open region play next Friday at Atlanta Metro.
