The #2 GCAA ranked Lady Chargers fell 60-53 to South Georgia Tech, who is ranked #1 in the GCAA and #14 in the NJCAA Division I women’s basketball rankings, on Jan. 10 at home.

At the half, GHC was down 23-17. The score stayed relatively close the entire game.

Anna Stewart and Kateryna Khomenko led the way for GHC the entire game. Stewart scored 16 points while Khomenko had 14 points and eight rebounds.

Brandan Harrell, head women’s basketball coach, said that he thought his team competed well. He said, “The effort was there. The competing was there. The playing with the physicality we want them to play was there.”

Harrell then said, “We’re just missing a little bit of composure and a little bit of execution on offense. Those are things we’ve got to get back and work on.”

Stewart said, “I feel like we’re actually better than South Georgia Tech. We just had some issues with the refs tonight. We came out better than when we played them last time and I feel like next time we play them, we’ll definitely win.”

This game made the Lady Chargers’ overall record 9-10 and their GCAA conference play record 5-3.

The Lady Chargers return to action on Jan. 13 at 2 p.m. at Central Georgia Tech. GHC returns to action at home on Jan. 17 against Albany Tech. Tip-off is at 5:30 p.m. Follow the Six Mile Post on Twitter @6MilePost for updates.
