Strong start for Lady Bulldogs

THOMASVILLE — What a difference a year makes for the Thomasville Lady Bulldogs.

Nine games into the ’11-’12 season, Thomasville was winless. This year the Lady Bulldogs have won eight of their first nine heading into a showdown with rival Thomas County Central Friday night.

Thomasville coach Thomas McAboy attributes his team’s turnaround to commitment and leadership.

“I tell them every day that I think they are better than what they think they are,” McAboy said. “I sincerely believe that. I think we have so much more room for improvement that it’s going to be exciting to see how the year unfolds. They are taking the criticisms. They are accepting the coaching. They are accepting being pushed harder in practice.

“Of course, when you win, I think that makes things a lot easier.”

Thomasville started the season 8-0, highlighted by wins over Thomas County Central and Brooks County. It was a much different beginning to the season than last year when the Lady Bulldogs began 0-12 and didn’t win their first game until Jan. 17.

Factoring into Thomasville’s success is its veteran leadership. After not graduating the first senior last year, the Lady Bulldogs returned all of their players, led by four seniors; Jacqueria Dunbar, Laneisha Douglass, Teena Lundy and Khabriyah Brown. The quartet symbolizes what this year’s squad is all about.
