The Skipjacks women’s basketball team recently took their talents from the court to the construction site to help Habitat for Humanity Choptank with a home building project on Port Street in Easton.
Student athletes who participated in the build are: Toni Chiarella, Joneisha Cain, Chantelle Gross, Reeya Jackson, Destiny Johnson, Amunique Newell, Natori Nesbit, Claire Pritchett, Cahndri Taylor and Emily Truitt.
.“This project helps the players to give back to the community. They also get an opportunity to build stronger relationships with each other,” said Head Coach Gwen Barnes.
This is the second time Construction Supervisor Jim Thomas of Habitat for Humanity Choptank has worked with the team
“It's been a pleasure working with the Chesapeake College Women's Basketball team again this year,” Mr. Thomas said. “They are always very helpful and eager to get involved. I'm especially impressed by how close they are to each other and with their coach. I look forward to working together again next year."
