The Midlands is loaded with talented players. Hammond’s Seventh Woods is the player many people want to see, and will sell out the 800-seat arena at Hammond weekly. Keenan’s Marcus Stroman, Irmo’s Javis Howard and Dreher’s Tevin Mack are the top senior prospects in the Midlands. C.A. Johnson’s Peter Goodman will be a force at the Class A level.
On the girl’s side, Debbie Stroman’s Lower Richland team will be the best ticket in the Midlands, followed by Dreher, Spring Valley and Dutch Fork. The top girls players are Spring Valley’s Cierra Carter, LR’s Breshay Johnson, Dreher’s Kaydra Duckett and Columbia’s Alexis Foulks.
