Multiple Teams · Chieftains struggle in 0-3 start


With one returning starter and two total players from last year’s team, the expected struggle to start the 2015-16 season has been eminent. Though a young team with very limited experience has struggled, it has been the free throw line that has become its achilles. With losses against ASMS, Williamson, and St. Luke’s, free throw concersion had hurt this team the most. The Chieftains missed, 17, 14, and 10, perspectively against each of its first three opponents. The team lost by 4, 7, and 13 in each of its contests. The Chieftains look to get its first win in a tough contest against Monroe County tonight in Monroeville. If it can convert free throws, it just might have a chance to knowck off the 4A Tigers.basketball10b
