DC Future Will Be Making Seventh Trip To Deep South Classic

DC Future has announced that, for the seventh time, the program will play their first major competition of the summer at the Deep South Classic. The organization was founded in 2007 as Alana Beard Future, and then the club name was changed to DC Future three years ago.

“The No. 1 thing about going to the Deep South is that you know you will be facing really good competition, and you get to play against all types of teams from all across the country,” said DC Future president/coach Keith Chestnut. “The other thing is that the event is always smoothly run. It has just always been a very, very good experience.”

The 2017 Deep South Classic will be held in Raleigh, NC from April 20-23. The event, which will feature some of the finest travel teams in the nation, will be played at the Raleigh Convention Center. There will be 20 courts in the building, keeping the entire event under one roof in downtown Raleigh.

When the Deep South tips off, Chestnut believes his team will be ready to go.

“I know we will be able to compete at a high level this summer,” he said. “We have a lot of talent this year, especially at the guard spots.”

Among the standouts on the perimeter for DC Future will be Kiana Williams (5-7, PG, 2018), Amina Ra’uf (5-9, 2G, 2018), Makayla Adams (5-11, W, 2019) and Tasha Bender (5-9, PG, 2018).

“Kiana is a great passer, and she can score at will,” Chestnut said. “She is very good in the mid-range game, and she can attack the basket. Amina is a deadly three point shooter, and she is an athlete who works very hard on the defensive end.

“Makayla is a great all-around player who can flat out score the basketball. She is also a tremendous rebounder. Taysha is a crazy athlete who is an outside hitter in volleyball. She plays tremendous defense, she is effective scoring inside, and she has a good mid-range game.”
