As a player and a teammate, starting varsity girls basketball player Keziah Brantley is always looking to conquer the next challenge ahead of her.
As an 8th grader at Lower Macungie Middle School, she played for the high school freshman team, coached by Emmaus social studies teacher Mr. Carolla. This year, she reached her goal of making the varsity team as a 9th grader. She scored a team-high 17 points in her second varsity game, a 51 to 46 victory on the road over Northwestern on Saturday, December 7.
But it is her team-first, humble attitude that really stands out about Keziah. She spoke of team goals - strong defensive effort, getting her teammates involved, and winning enough games to get the Hornets back into the playoffs - as real motivators for her upcoming season.
So it’s time to lace up those sneaks and hit the hardwood and meet Keziah Brantley.
