Both GHC basketball teams displayed their talents on Feb. 8, as the women’s team took on the top-ranked team in the NJCAA, South Georgia Technical College.

The Lady Chargers were able to keep the score close early, even going into the second quarter tied 9-9. However, they ultimately fell to the Lady Jets by a score of 62-49.

Cheyenne Holloman led the Lady Chargers with 16 points, while Jamariah Turner scored 12.

The Chargers would then take the court in a battle with the Central Georgia Technical College Titans.

It was a tale of two halves for the Chargers, as they took a commanding 47-31 lead into halftime with no signs of slowing down.

However, the Titans would outscore them 43-30 in the second half, resulting in a chance for the Titans to tie the game up at the buzzer, trailing 77-74.

The three-point attempt didn’t fall, and the Chargers remained undefeated against GCAA opponents this season.

PJ Carter led the Chargers in scoring with 16 points while Julian Dozier finished with 13.

The Chargers’ next home game will be Wednesday night at 6 p.m. against South Georgia State College.

The Lady Chargers will be in action again on Saturday at 2 p.m. against Central Georgia Technical College in their final home.
