Coach Michael Prichard and the Charlestown High School Lady Basketball Coaching Staff presented a Basketball Shooting Challenge for any player 3rd-12th grade over the last several months. The challenge ran from the middle of March 2014 until the end of July 2014. The goal was to take at least 10,000 shots or more in that time frame. The Challenge ended a couple of weeks ago with two players emerging as hard-working Lady Pirate Shooting Champions. Those shooting champions are Karston Watson and Gabby Hooker, shown below left to right.
Karston Watson is a 7th Grader at Charlestown Middle School, said “I really like playing basketball and thought completing this shooting challenge make me a better player and it would help me improve my shot.” Karston was asked what she thought the accomplishment would do for her personal goals; of which she stated “it feels like doing this challenge will help me improve my shot” Karston finished with 11,000 shots
Gabby Hooker, a 4th Grader at Jonathan Jennings Elementary School, was asked what helped her complete the Challenge. Gabby stated “because I wanted to work on my shooting and this gave me something to aim for”. She also stated that the “shooting accomplishment helped correct the way I shoot the ball at times and as well as my range”. Gabby hopes that she will continue to improve her basketball game. Gabby finished the Challenge with 10,433 Shots.
Coach Prichard is very pleased with the hard-work and dedication that these two young ladies put forth, while doing this challenge. Both Karston and Gabby have been invited to be special halftime guests of Charlestown Pirate Pride Sports Broadcasting during one of the upcoming Lady Pirate Basketball games.
