“Ending my senior year basketball season came sooner than I had hoped for, but it was truly a blessing to make it back to the tournament. I owe Coach Glover a huge thank you for providing me with this opportunity, and I give thanks to my teammates for working hard each day. I wish them well in their upcoming season,” said Davis.
In addition, D'Ariel Walker, a 5'7 senior guard, from Augusta Ga., who also serves as Miss Voorhees College 2018-2019, was also recognized as the Voorhees College Women's Basketball Team’s “Champion of Character.”
