The FCCAA #8 Santa Fe Saints (2-3) led the #4 Tallahassee CC Eagles at the half, but failed to hold on, shooting only 25% (16-of-64) from the field in a 59-47 loss.  TCC outscored the Saints 14-7 at the foul line.

 “Our effort was good, but our execution has to get better,” said SF Coach Chanda Stebbins.  “We will see Tallahassee again on Tuesday and will be able to measure our improvement right away.”

 Kindsay Brandt led SF in scoring with 14 points, Stephenie Coney had 11 and Leandra King scored seven points to go with a game high 15 rebounds.

 “We did a great job on the glass,” Stebbins said.  “Leandra set a great tone for us early and played hard all game, helping us outrebound them 51-42.”

 Tallahassee visits Gainesville on Tuesday for a game with the Saints at 6:00pm.  The Santa Fe men follow against TAAG Academy at 8:00 p.m.

 “A tournament like the one this weekend is a great experience for our players,” said Stebbins.  “To be able to play two Panhandle teams gives us a good idea of what it takes to beat the best teams in the country.”

Chas Henry Selected as 2010 Ray Guy Award Semifinalist for Third-Consecutive Year

 

University of Florida senior punter Chas Henry (Dallas, Ga.) is one of 10 semifinalists for the 2010 Ray Guy Award, as announced by the Augusta Sports Council on Friday. The Ray Guy Award identifies the nation’s top collegiate punter. This marks the third-consecutive year Henry has been a semifinalist for the award. 

 

Henry has punted 33 times for 1,590 yards (48.18 average) through nine games in 2010. Twelve of his punts have landed inside the 20-yard line and only 10 have been returned.

 

Henry has also taken over kicking duties for the Gators and was named the SEC Co-Special Teams Player of the Week for his performance in Florida’s 34-31 overtime win against Georgia after he kicked the team’s winning field goal.

 

The candidates were evaluated on their overall statistics and contribution to the team. Particular emphasis was placed on the punter’s net average, percentage of total punts inside the 20-yard line, and percentage of punts not returned. A national voting body of Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) coaches, sports information directors, national media, and former Ray Guy Award winners will decide the three award finalists, who will be named on Monday, Nov. 22. Voters will then cast a second round of ballots to decide the winner.

The Saints (2-2) hung with the defending National Champion Gulf Coast CC Commodores (2-0) on Friday night, falling in a closely contested game, 83-71.

 

Santa Fe played shot for shot in the first half, trailing by only four at the break 43-39, despite shooting only 1-for-8 from the free throw line.  In the second half, GCCC was able to keep it at an 8-10 point deficit behind strong play from Kyra Crosby who finished with 28 points.

 

“This was a good learning experience for us,” said SF Coach Chanda Stebbins.  “We played well most of the game, we just didn’t have an answer for Crosby.”

 

Four SF players scored in double figures, led by freshman guard Kindsay Brandt’s 15.  Stephanie Edwards scored 14 with four assists, Leandra King 10 points and nine rebounds and Jasmine Blakemore had 10 points.  Jasmine Richardson scored seven points off the bench to spark the Saints.

 

“Jasmine Blakemore, Jasmine Richards and Edwards did some good things off the bench for us today,” said Stebbins.  “As a team, we just have to start doing the little things better.  One thing that was exciting to see is how deep and balanced we are. A lot of different players can contribute for us and that is important going forward.”

 

The state ranked #8 Saints continue in the Collegiate Girls Basketball Report Classic on Saturday at 3:00pm EDT against another Panhandle Conference opponent, #4 Tallahassee CC.  The game can be watched live at http://www.chipola.edu/tv/.
