High schools: Carter Cloud has one more chance at Class 5A state title

The Heritage Hall senior is coming to grips that prep career is almost done. And there would be no sweeter way to go out than winning the state championship.

Former Heritage Hall player Dana Dobson filled in during his absence, but the team never seemed to be bothered by the transitions, compiling a 24-2 record against some of the state's top teams.

“We knew it would be hectic, so we just had to plan for it, and Dana has done a great job,” Hamiter said. “In spite of everything that has gone on, things have been pretty stable.

“There has been some good leadership, and this team, as much as any team I've coached, has remained emotionally stable. There are no big highs or big lows.”

As the team's lone senior, Cloud deserves some of that credit, and she enjoyed watching the team come together so quickly. Only two other starters returned in juniors Bradi Ryan and Lindsey Grace, with primarily sophomores and freshmen filling other roles.

Now, Cloud is ready to finish what the Chargers couldn't last year, when they lost in the title game to Cascia Hall.

“Losing last year gave us the will to come back and try and get one,” she said. “When we beat Cascia Hall early in the season, it fired us up and gave us confidence and that boost we needed to get going.”
