Going into Saturday’s game against Stephens County, Chestatee girls basketball player Peyton Robertson had a feeling.
The senior believed she was going to have a good game, the Lady War Eagles would win and that she would score 25 points.
That’s exactly what happened.
Chestatee defeated its second straight subregion opponent, 47-23, with Robertson pouring in 25 points and pulling down seven rebounds.
For her efforts, Robertson is The Times Athlete of the Week.
“I just had a feeling that I would score 25,” Robertson said. “I told a few people, and it ended up happening.
“It was kind of crazy.”
What could also be called crazy is the tear that Class AAA’s eighth-ranked Lady War Eagles have been on so far this year. Chestatee is 14-2 overall after a Monday-evening victory over Union County, and is 2-0 in subregion 8A-AAA.
After starting the season 8-0, Chestatee suffered its first loss in a double-overtime thriller to East Hall in the Lanierland title game on Dec. 23.
Five days later, in their own Christmas tournament at Chestatee, the Lady War Eagles’ anger over their loss to East Hall was apparent; they defeated Class AAAA’s Alexander, 45-13.
“We felt we should have had that game,” Robertson said of the loss to East Hall. “We should have won and we weren’t happy about it.”
Chestatee suffered its second loss of the season the next day, losing 64-39 to Hillgrove, the No. 2 team in Class AAAAA.
Robertson believes that the loss to Hillgrove is what sparked the Lady War Eagles’ current four-game winning streak.
“We got a taste of losing and we didn’t like it,” Robertson said. “We don’t want to feel that anymore.”
After the loss, Chestatee defeated South Atlanta easily, 63-28, and then won a close contest with Pickens, 45-44, before opening subregion play on Jan. 7 against North Hall.
In that game, Robertson scored 19 points and the Lady War Eagles rolled to the 12-point win, 55-43.
And then came Saturday’s game.
“I just took advantage of my size,” Robertson, who is committed to play for Young Harris next season, said. “(Stephens County) has a pretty small team, so I just used my height and took control in the post.”
Although Chestatee occasionally runs a four-out, one-in offense, requiring Robertson to step out to the 3-point line where she is able to take a jump shot, the 6-foot-2 center feels more comfortable under the basket.
“I can take the jump shot, but I feel a lot better about a two-foot shot than a 15-foot shot,” Robertson said. “But I, and the rest of my teammates, just do whatever we need to win.”
Chestatee will continue subregion play at 6 p.m. Tuesday against Lumpkin County in Gainesville.
