Captain Shreve makes school history with win

Capt. Shreve’s Aaliyah Stevenson drives to the basket during a game against Evangel at Evangel Christian Academy Tuesday night.

Shout it from the rooftops, break out the bubbly. The Captain Shreve Lady Gators are your District 1-5A champions for the first time in 50 years – the first since the school began, heck, maybe since time began.

Not even when the great Danielle Butler was roaming the Gator pen under the late Carolyn Boydstun did the team enjoy this success.

The renaissance in the girls’ basketball program was capped with a relatively easy 65-46 victory over injury riddled Evangel Tuesday night in the Lady Eagles’ gym. The Lady Gators clinched at least a share of the title that has been mostly owned by Southwood over the years. If Keith Green’s club can defeat Byrd Friday night, they have the title all alone.

Captain Shreve showed signs this summer of catching up with the top teams in the state’s best district.

An unlikely run to a 7on7 title featured wins over fellow District 1-5A Parkway and Haughton, not to mention three over host and District 1-4A defending champs Benton. While many of those schools sought to fill plenty of holes left by departed seniors, the Gators’ 12 returning starters continued to build confidence while becoming stronger and faster.

“They’re moving with a purpose,” coach Bryant Sepulvado said. “Last year they were trying not to make a mistake and this year they’re trying to make a play.” Continue reading
