Lady Rain prep for Nike Jr. Nationals


The Nike Junior National 16-and-under girls basketball tournament will feature a team from East Tennessee that call themselves the Rain. The objective for the Rain is to “reign” supreme in Washington D.C., when they will face competition from as far away as Colorado, from July 24-27.
The eight-player team consists of Alexis Bowers, Kayla and Kelci Marosites, Melenda Perry, Kasey Gordon, Leann Scharberg, Kalee Johnson and Shy Bowers. Also on the squad but injured is Unicoi County’s Chelsey Harness.
Bowers suffered a concussion in a game this past week and will travel with the team — but may not play.
