Lady Blaze Basketball Senior Night

Demaiia King

   The Lady Blaze basketball team are known for their historic and award-winning program: two All District titles, three All District Tournament titles, two All Region titles, District 7AAA/7AAAA 2020-2021 Tournament Champions, District 7AAA/7AAAA 2021-2022 Regular Season Champions, District 7AAA/7AAAA 2021-2022 District Tournament Runner-ups, District 7AAA/7AAAA 2022-2023 Regular Season Champions, District 7AAA/7AAAA 2022-2023 District Tournament Champions, three time Region 4AAA/4AAAA Champions, three Sectional wins, three TSSAA State Tournament Final Eight appearances, and one State Championship title. 

   This season they defended their title as they were named 2023-2024 District 7AAA/7AAAA Tournament Champions. 

   It is safe to say that the senior class has made quite an impact on the Lady Blaze basketball program. They hope to continue to do so as they continue through the postseason. 

   The Lady Blaze senior class celebrated senior night on Feb. 6 against their district opponents Rockvale High School. 

   “Senior night was so memorable. My teammates showered me with gifts, and it just reminded me that I have the most amazing teammates. Being able to go out there and play alongside my fellow seniors was so special,” said senior basketball player and Florida Gulf Coast commit Kaelyn Flowers. 

   After being tied at halftime, Blackman outscored Rockvale by ten points in the third quarter, and the senior class left the Furnace for the final time victorious as they got the 49-38 win.  

   “One way I would describe senior night is that it was very ecstatic,” stated Tishana Moore, senior basketball player.  

   Naturally, the four senior Lady Blaze basketball players reflected on their past and current seasons as a part of the historic team given what could have been their last time playing on their home court. 

   “I am going to miss all of the personalities in the locker room. All my teammates never fail to put a smile on my face. I will cherish every memory I have made the last four years being a Lady Blaze,” Flowers said. 

   The Lady Blaze will return to the court Saturday, March 2 at 7 p.m. at Blackman High School as they enter the final round of Regionals. Come out and support your Lady Blaze.
