Among those players were: Brynae Laxton, Brandon Boyatt, Jamie Payne, Stacie Love, Dara Smith, Leslie Sexton, Dee Butler, Denise King, Jessi Seals, and Ginger West.

They set out to win a state championship and that's exactly what they did. Today, most of them are very succesful or are residents here in Scott County. Brynae Laxton who was and is a very good ball player went on to play for the Lady Vols after high school, where she won several national championships.
