HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - If you check out a Lamar Christian girls basketball practice, you may think some players are missing. You would be wrong. Rachael Pitts, Becca Chatham, Chatherine Hannabass, Rebekah Engle, Abbey Anderson and Kalie Blackmon make up the entire Lady Lions roster.
Coaching at a small private school, limited numbers isn't new for George Coll. But there's something different about this group.
"I've coached six players but never six players like this," Coll said. "Real special group. Real special group of ladies that we have right here."
This group has come together to form one of the state's top private schools. The Lady Lions have won 26 games with a schedule that has included tough public school competition. Remember, this is with only one player on the bench.
These Lady Lions have surely trusted the process.
Witnessing this group perform through all challenges has inspired Coll.
