MINT HILL, NC – The Mint Hill sportswriters want to highlight an under the radar player Chloe Moss, who has earned and deserves recognition for her continued development and growth as an athlete and leader on the Lady Patriots basketball team this season.

Moss has been a pleasure to watch, she has consistently improved her game each week and her hard work and dedication paid off this past week in the Southwestern 4A Conference Tournament.

Along with the teams top player Kaylee Carson, and senior Tamia Burgess who really stepped up in the second half of the season, including during the tournament, Moss stands out as a difference maker.

The sophomore who plays with abandon, scored a total of 41 points, grabbed 19 rebounds, and played solid defense in the 3 games contested this week for the Lady Patriots. They were defeated in the Conference Championship game by Charlotte Catholic 53-40. But the loss does fall on her shoulders, there are a variety of reasons for the loss, including Catholic is a deeper team with one outstanding dominating 6’5″ athlete in Blanca Thomas.

In the game against Providence she played a major role, she scored a team high 15 points, and hauled down 5 rebounds in the semi-final game. She literally led the Patriots in a comeback victory down by 11 scoring 8 straight points. The big play came when Kamryn Kitchen blocked a Providence 3-point shot, Moss picked up the loose ball was fouled and drilled both foul shots under pressure with the game on the line to secure the victory.

In 22 games prior to the championship, Moss averaged 9.3 points per game, had 131 rebounds, 22 three pointers, 28 steals, 28 assists, 9 blocks, AFG% at 54%, and 2 double-doubles. Against Rocky River in the opening round she tallied 13 points, and 9 rebounds. While in the conference championship game Friday night she scored 13 points, and pulled down multiple rebounds in a solid effort.

The Mint Hill Times sports writers want to congratulate Chloe Moss for being selected our Player of the Week.
