Bradwell Institute girls basketball coach Faye Baker, assistant coach Dana King and the Lady Tigers are building their program quickly this season with nine wins and only one loss so far.
Throw in the squad’s back-to-back post-season state title runs and it’s no wonder Bradwell ranks among the top schools in the Georgia High School Association coaches poll. Maxpreps.com, a CBS affiliate dedicated to high school sports, also puts the Lady Tigers near the top of the list.
Many of the team’s players are individually ranked in the top 50 in the state and in their region, according to stats posted online last Wednesday.
Maxpreps.com broke the statistics down by category and here is where most of the Lady Tigers fell:
