RCHS Basketball Senior Profile: Lindsay Ramage
In Feb. 19 Issue

Senior Lindsay Ramage has been a double-double machine on the hardwood for Coach Craig Pippen's Lady Lakers this season. With her play and leadership on the court and a likeable personality off the court, it is understandable why she is beloved by her teammates and coaching staff.

"Honestly, as a senior, it has gone by way too fast," Ramage said as she geared up for 16th district tournament play, which begins next Monday night in Metcalfe County. "I'm pleased with our performance this year and I just hope, come district time, we will continue to do well."

As of midweek, the Lady Lakers' record stands at 16-7 overall with a 6-0 mark in regular season district play.

"Our goal is to definitely win the district tournament and beyond that, the past two years we've gone to region we've got beaten in the first round, so our goal is to go for three games in the region tournament instead of just one."

Once her basketball career at Russell County High School does end in several weeks, Ramage said she would miss coming in to practice each day.

"That's something we take for granted and dread right now but I will definitely miss it and the girls," she said. "We're together all the time so that is going to be a big change."

Ramage, who began playing in the Russell County youth leagues when she was just a second grader, went on to say that it is her hope to attend Campbellsville University and play for the Lady Tigers once her senior year at RCHS is over.

"It is not for certain yet so this could be it for me so I'm definitely going to play these last games of the season like they're my last to play," she said.

Ramage said her parents had been a huge influence on her student-athlete life as well and attributed her father, Bill, as being instrumental in introducing the game to her at a young age.

"They both have been awesome and I love them very much," she said. "My dad has really been a role model for me and I've always been able to talk to him about things."

She also said that when coach Pippen came in her freshman year he instilled a Christian influence around the Lady Laker basketball program.

"I look up to him as well," she said. Ramage said her most rapid improvements on the court have been both her post moves on the offensive end and her post defense on the defensive end.

That is evident by her double figure scoring and rebounding this season, something Pippen will have to look to replace with younger, less-experienced players a year from now.
