If the Lady Lions were the most successful girls program in the County, it would be hard to argue that the Calvert Lady Trojans were next. Though they failed to make the playoffs in Volleyball, they still managed to win more games and become more competitive than the program has ever been. The addition of senior Raquel Wortham from Bremond gave the team a true volleyball player. That success led into one of the most outstanding basketball seasons in girl’s basketball history in the County. Led by, what I called the “Iron Five” (they averaged more than 30 minutes a game each), Diesha Clark, Jaylonn Walker, Tiffany Williams, Lakeydra Mosley, and Raquel Wortham, they pushed the sport to a new level of performance not seen before. They finished the season at 30-2, suffering losses only to 2A Franklin, which made the State Semi-finals in Class 2A and in the Championship game to Nazareth. It was the most wins in school history and the school’s first Finals appearance. Sophomore Jaylonn Walker was named to the All-State team and the team finished as State Runner Up.
Then came Track season where the two-girl team of seniors Lakeydra Mosley, and Tiffany Williams, finished third as a team in the State Championship. Individually, Mosley would repeat as State Champion in the 100 meters and Williams would repeat as Champion in the 400 meters, win another Championship in the 800 meters, and finish second in the 200 meters. It was a very successful 2013-14 for the Lady Trojan program and they thrived in the spotlight. Congratulations to the Calvert Lady Trojans on a great season.
Next season, Diesha Clark and Jaylonn Walker succeed as the two leaders of the program. Here’s hoping they maintain that degree of excellence shown by the Mosley and Williams duo. If so, then the Calvert Lady Trojans are in good hands for 2014-15.
