Wildcats claw toward winning season

By Asante Jones and Robert Redfern

The Garinger Wildcats will make their first claw tonight at a winning season.

The starter team full of seniors Kemmi Pettway, Jamarkus Eison, Keith Davis, and Paul Coleman, and of course, the 7 foot, 225-pound freshman Raekwan Long hopefully will bring Garinger a winning season as they face North Mecklenburg. This team has only won 10 games in the last 4 seasons, but this season they hope to overcome the mishaps of the past.

The Wildcats  have been invited to several upscale, talented tournaments throughout North Carolina. They also have a new coach, Joshua Coley, who is a former Johnson C Smith University guard; he also played semi pro and had an assistant coaching  job at Durham Hillside High School and N.C. Central University.

The team has a lot of confidence in their big man standing, hoping the 7 feet tall Long can get the job done and give Garinger its first winning season in 4 years.

The home-opening game begins at  7 p.m.  today (Nov. 19 ) in the Garinger auditorium. Tickets are $6 at the door.
