VALDOSTA, Ga. (WTXL) — Their previous weekend series may have ended as a split with Montevallo, but the fifth-ranked Valdosta State Lady Blazers have a lot to be excited about sitting 14-2 overall, with a national championship in mind.

The key behind this team’s success? A perfect blend of chemistry and talent from the starting five to the last girl off the bench. And from the very first practice of the season, this team believed that this level of play was more than achievable. What it all came down to was execution and head coach Deandra Schirmer has seen her team give nothing but their very best so far.

“Knowing the players that we brought in and the recruiting class that we had and just the talent and seeing us in practice we compete. I’ve been very proud of these girls, not only do we have the talent but we have the chemistry and we’ve played together," said Schirmer. "So I’m very proud of this group so far and we're not done yet.

“We came in wanting to be the best team that we could be. I think that by doing all of that we’ve gotten to where we’re going and I love the fact that we’re going in a good direction and that we’re continuing to go in a good direction," adds Lady Blazers center Kwajelin Farrar.

The Lady Blazers are back in action Friday night at 7 p.m. as they hit the road for a weekend doubleheader against Auburn-Montgomery.
