Flight 22 Tennessee might be a team not many of you are familiar with?
Made up of players from the Eastern side of the state this group has become a part of the Flight 22 organization and will be looking to turn some heads in the 17 and under division.
This weekend they participated in the Big Shots Myrtle Beach event and had a nice showing finishing 2-1 and proving they could play with some of the better teams in the Southeast.
They opened up action at Big Shots with an 89-69 victory over the Big Shots Elite behind 22 markers from Dalton Conn (Grainger).
Camon Cody (Jefferson County) added 16 while Trevor Hensley (Unicoi County) pitched in with 14 markers. Michael Cody (Monterey) also finished with 10 markers for Flight.
Coaches were quick to praise the contributions of Jordan Self (Sullivan Central), Alex Norwood (Elizabethton) and Joseph Fluker (Knoxville Catholic).
Conn again led the scoring brigade with 17 but the Flight fell to the North Carolina Running Rebels 71-59 to even their record at 1-1. Hensley added 12 while the Cody boys each finished with 10.
Conn had a monster weekend and his 18 got the Flight back on the winning track as they blasted Big Shots Elite SC 73-48. Hensley added 12 and the Cody kids each garnered 10 apiece.
Marquice Fifield (Grainger) didn't score as much as usual but his steady play at the lead guard spot kept the Flight in every game. He averaged in the neighborhood of 8 to 10 assists per contest and usually gathered the assignment of guarding the top scorer whomever they played.
