JV Lady Rebels
After falling to LaGrange Academy in the season opener, the JV Lady Rebels opened up at home hosting 3A Lee-Scott Academy. Aubie McManus struck first putting the Lady Rebels on the board, but Lee-Scott put up 5 unanswered points.
Emmalyn McManus added another basket to cut the Warrior lead 4-7, but Lee-Scott got hot near the end of the second making the score 4-15 at the half.
The JV Lady Rebels were finally able to put some points on the board in the second half, but the Lee-Scott lead was too much for them to overcome, and they fell 15-31.

Varsity Lady Rebels
The Chambers Academy Varsity Lady Rebels fields a very young team this year as no seniors appear on the roster. The Lady Rebels currently sit at 0-4 on the season; however, improvements are seen each game.
After struggling against both LaGrange Academy and Sparta Academy, Chambers dropped the third game of the season to Hooper in a close match 33-36.
Most recently, the Lady Rebels took on the Lee-Scott Lady Warriors at home. Chambers was able to completely shut down the Warriors’ inside game dominantly controlling the boards, but the outside shooting of Lee-Scott proved to be too much for Chambers as they fell 29-51.
