Ramsey looks forward to next level

Hunter Elementary’s Lyndie Ramsey ended her middle school basketball career with a game-high, 24-point performance as the Lady Tiger’s fell to Bulls Gap in the Sectional Tournament opener.

Ramsey’s 24 points in that game would push her past the 1,000-point mark, and the future Unaka Lady Ranger is proud of that accomplishment.

“It felt great,” said Ramsey. “It was good to score all of those points.”

Just like in middle school ball, Ramsey has a lot of high hopes for her high school hoops career at Unaka High School.

“I want to play hard and represent my school just like my big brother does,” said Ramsey. “I want to continue the success he (John “Boy” Ramsey) has here for the Rangers.”

During her time at Hunter, Ramsey has developed a close relationship with her fellow Lady Tigers, and she said she will miss some of the fun times she has had at Hunter.

“We always laughed at practice and had fun,” said Ramsey. “We were always together and were never far apart from one another.”

When Ramsey, who was selected as conference MVP for 2018-19 while being an all-tournament selection, wasn’t competing for Hunter Elementary, she was playing ball for the Lady Prime Marissa Coleman (LMPC) basketball team which is coached by Russ Lyon and John Lee. While on the LMPC, Ramsey and her teammates won the AAU National Championships in Kingsport last July.

During the 2018 US Amateur Nationals, Ramsey won the Hot Shot Champion shooting contest.

Ramsey attends Valley Forge Christian Church and is a straight-A student at Hunter.
