The Wallace Prather Celtics have a long, successful history, and the Atlanta based club also has a very bright future. The Celtics have recently added several key players, bolstering an already impressive roster.
“We had a fantastic spring, and we’re really excited about what we can do in July,” said Coach Renardo “Nard” Hudson. “We have really been working hard to get ready for the July tournaments. We’ve had a lot of two-a-days, and individual workouts. We’ve also added a couple of pieces, and they seem to be fitting into place.
“We’re going to be a tough team to beat this summer, and we feel really good about our future. We have so much great young talent in our program. We are definitely looking forward to the next four or five years.”
Those talented athletes will be competing in Las Vegas at the Lake Las Vegas Classic, which will be played at the Westin Lake Las Vegas complex on July 10. The field in Nevada will be loaded with outstanding programs from around the country.
The Celtics roster is filled with talented veteran prospects such as Courtney Meadows (2018, 5-5, PG), a recent West Virginia commitment who is rated as the ninth-best player in her class nationally by the All Star Girls Report, and Taylor Mason (2017, 5-9, SG, No. 44). Hudson, however, is equally excited about a number of new players, including Lyndsey Whilby (2017, 6-0, G) and Chioma Joy Nnamani (2019, 5-10, G).
