HIGH SCHOOL 1976-1980
In 1976 a rule was passed that freshman could play varsity sports. Cheryl was the first freshman to make a varsity team at Hamilton High School. During her freshman year she made a commitment to develop her skills. After the season she would work out every day after school in her driveway. This paid off. As time past she continue to take her game to another level and would eventually play college basketball at Arkansas and professionally with the Columbus Minks.
During Cheryl’s senior year (1979 -1980) Hamilton High School went 12 – 0 to win the City Conference Title. They went on to win regionals and sectionals and make it back to state. Cheryl is holding the basketball on the ladder.
