Southeast girls ranked 8th, but injuries mounting up

Southeast is the only Manatee County school to be ranked in the Florida Association of Basketball Coaches (FACA) girls basketball state poll that was released on Tuesday.

Coming off a week where they defeated two defending state champions in St. Petersburg Lakewood and Tampa Catholic, the Seminoles (16-3) are eighth in the Class 5A Poll.

The voters still have Lakewood (11-5) ranked ahead of Southeast in the fifth spot. Gulfport Boca Ciega (13-7), which defeated Southeast earlier in the season, is ranked seventh.

It wasn’t all that good for Southeast last week. The already thin Lady Seminoles lost sophomore guard and sixth man Daisha Kelly to an ACL injury she suffered during the team’s victory over Palmetto. She is out for the season.

Deangela Mathis continues to look like an emerging star for Southeast. The sophomore is averaging 19.5 points per game to leads the team in scoring and is shooting 60 percent from the field. Bevin Mays had a career high 25 points in win over Tampa Catholic.
