Southmoore Sabercats


Coach: Tim Stogsdill

18-19 Record: 20-9

The Southmoore Sabercats enter this season poised and ready to make another run at a gold ball. They return all five starters from a team that went 20-9 last year and ended their season in the semifinals of the Class 6A state tournament. Fourth year head coach, Tim Stogsdill, says that his team is ready to go further than they did last season. “We are a senior ball club focused on returning to the state tournament and taking it one step further than we did last year,” he said. “Our goal is to be playing our best basketball at the end of February and March and get back to the state tournament.” Jordan Thompson (6-1, Sr.) averaged 22 points and 5.4 assists per game last season. Combo player Sam Godwin (6-9, Sr.) scored 16 points per game and pulled down 12 rebounds per contest. Looking to make a big impact this season, Steve Jackson (6-2, Sr.) returns after averaging 8.3 points per game a year ago. As a high powered guard, Darrin Ryan will look to increase his impact this season. Other players to keep an eye on this season, players like Ryan Nealy (6-3, Sr.), Damion Kline (5-10, Jr.), and Ondray Canady (5-10, Sr.). There are also a few transfers on the team. Jaylin Counters (6-2, Sr.) moved in from Southeast High School and has a very high basketball IQ. Moving in from Texas, Brody Urquhart (6-6, Sr.) is a tremendous rebounder. Joe Roane (6-5, Sr.) is new from Moore High School and can play both inside and outside. 



Coach: Shawn Clark

18-19 Record: 2-21

Last season was a rough time for the Southmoore Lady Sabercats, only notching two wins. This upcoming season has a bright spot, as the team is returning four starters from a year ago. That is another year of experience and chemistry. Erin Bean (Sr.) returns for her final year of high school basketball after averaging 12.7 points, six rebounds, and two blocks per game last season. Also back to help the team, Torie Simon (Jr.) looks to be a key contributor this season. Jada Atkinson (So.) averaged six points per game while also stealing the ball 2.2 times per game. Freshman Madison Crandall looks to be a key addition to the team this season. She scored over 1,000 points during her junior high career. Other players to watch this season are Jordan Pennon (Jr.) and Brooklyn Haywood (Fr.). Second year Lady Sabercats head coach, Shawn Clark, has all of his assistant coaches returning this season, including Skip Ashworth, Holly Hackett, and Larry Littlejohn.
