Letter: Salisbury High girls deserve fan support

Congratulations to the Salisbury High School girls basketball team for their win over North Davidson on Tuesday and capturing the Central Carolina Conference regular season championship.

The Hornets were victorious against South Rowan, and have accumulated 20 victories this season.

I have been impressed with the character, talent, attitude and cohesiveness of these student-athletes. Coaches Lakai Brice and Robert Harrison deserve credit for the remarkable job they have done to mold a relatively young team to one that currently ranks 26th in the state and 3rd among all 2A girls teams.

Attendance at both home and away games has been encouraging. Relatives, friends, community supporters as well as SHS staff have been supportive by their presence.

As the Hornets prepare for post season play and as a contender for the state 2A championship, I am hopeful there will be even greater support. This team certainly deserves it.

—Quentin Woodward Jr.
