Thank You Lady Mambas 2018

Thank you to the Lady Mambas 2018.  It seems like only yesterday when we first saw these young ladies walk through the gym as bright eyed youngsters just happy to be on a team and now we have played our last tournament together. The great thing about coaching is you get to see people grow and mature into young adults on and off the court. This group has grown up in the Mambas family and won countless trophies and championships; they have exceeded team wins for any Mambas team and set the bar extremely high for every Mambas team in the future. Even more importantly, they truly bonded as a family on and off the court. The goal of the Mambas program is to get better every year; this 2018 team took the foundation laid for them and took the organization to new heights with their overwhelming success and dominance on the court. The Mambas organization is forever indebted to these young ladies and we will support you throughout the rest of your careers. Thank you!

Kiara McCollins  (Mitchell) Signs with Itawamba CC 

Congratulations to Kiara McCollins for continuing her playing career at Itawamba CC. Kiara came right into the Mambas organization and instantly became a member of the family. Her personality would always keep the team energized. She possess natural leadership qualities that will transition well on the next level. Never one to be shy, her willingness to be a vocal leader and her selflessness to make hustle plays on defense will get her consistent playing time in college. Kiara is a true testament to what believing in yourself can help you achieve; she consistently asked to get in the gym and worked; she accepted constructive criticism and she kept pushing to get better. Kiara never allowed doubters or detractors from letting her reach for her goals. The Mambas organization is proud to have been a part of her journey. Itawamba is getting a fun, energetic and personable player that will be an immediate contributor on the court. Kiara McCollins, keep proving the doubters wrong.

Lindsey Whiteside (Northpoint) signs with Rhodes College

Lindsey Whiteside signs with Rhodes College. Lindsey was only with us for one season but it feels like she was here from the beginning. She is the type of player that comes right in and does whatever is needed without compliants. Some games she would be leader scorer, the next leader rebounder or assists or guard the best player on the other team. Lindsey does it all, the ultimate glue player, so its no surprise that she helped lead her high school to back-to-back state rings and it will be no surprise the immediate impact she will have at Rhodes. She is a competitor, Rhodes will be a contender in the next four years due to her championship mindset. Lindsey Whiteside even though her time in a Mambas jersey was short she will forever be Mambas family.
