Lady Chargers Shake off Slow Start, Defeat Aviation


Junior Aubrey Slocum has had an up and down season for the Creative Technologies Academy Lady Chargers. She has had multiple games where she has scored double digit points, but has also had to sit out a few games due to two separate ankle injuries. Slocum’s ankle seemed to be good to go Monday night though, as she led CTA with a career high 22 points in a 32-25 victory.

The Chargers trailed by 3 at halftime, but tightened up on both the offensive and defensive ends to outscore West Michigan Aviation Academy by ten points in the second half. Coach Gerry Verwey has been preaching eliminating mental mistakes, communicating, and listening to his team, and they responded in a great way Monday night.

The Chargers were led by Slocum’s 22 points, but many other ladies contributed asa well. Senior Olivia Wortz chipped in four points, Senior Hannah Hubbared scored two, and Faith Watson and Hannah Hostra scored two each as well. They were Hofstra’s first two career varsity basketball points.

The Chargers have two more games this week, setting a pre-week goal of going 3-0 for the week. With a victory on Monday, all of their goals are still within reach.
