Indians aim for more girls hardwood titles

Since Chad Cook took over as the Anderson girls varsity basketball coach four years ago, playing for titles has been a common experience.

In the past two seasons the Indians have only lost to Logansport in the North Central Conference, making them title contenders each season. The team has been one of the favorites each of the past three years in the Madison County Tournament.

Plus the Tribe has played for the sectional championship in each of the past three seasons, winning once, in 2012.

Anderson graduated six last spring including two of the top four scorers, Taylor Potts and Darien Thompson. But that means two of the top four scorers are back in Chelsea Bentley and Da’Sha Boyd. Bentley is one of the most talented players in the area and certainly the most versatile.

This year’s roster, submitted to, shows five returning seniors. Besides Boyd and Bentley, the list includes three other key players, Samia Carter, Kezanique Gosha and Donjanae Chamberlain. Cook’s penchant for using a lot of players will serve the team well in terms of depth and experience.

The Indians will get underway this Saturday, going on the road to play Bishop Chatard.

The Lions were just under .500 at 10-11 a year ago and this season will operate under new coach Jim Clark.

“This year we have six seniors, two juniors, three sophomores, and six freshmen,” said Clark. “With a good balance of upperclassmen and talented freshmen we anticipate a good season. We should be competitive in most of our games, with good players at the point guard position, good size at the forwards, and a 6-foot-1 post player who should anchor our offense in the post.”

The seniors are Michaela Levell, Katie Maidlow, Morgan Vance, Kelsey Flowers, Savanna Aikin and Baylee Oren. There is a lot of ground to cover.

It started off as a record-setting meet and finished with a bang as Pendleton was able to wrap up both titles. The girls held off a stiff challenge from Lapel to win 167.5-147, and the boys took the final event of the night to squeak out a 156.5-148.5 win over Lapel.
