The Southern Standard wants to take the opportunity to highlight the standout Boyd athletes. Partnering with Kevin Rhoton, we will be honoring a Bronco of the Month throughout the 2022-23 school year. Our January Bronco of the Month is Lady Bronco junior Miranda Medley.
Miranda Medley didn’t need long to make a splash at Boyd. She started shooting the lights out the moment she put on a Lady Bronco jersey.
Medley was a very welcome midseason addition for Boyd, transferring from WCHS in December and immediately becoming one of the team’s top go-to scorers. In January, she took her game to new heights, averaging 15.1 points per game as the Lady Broncos went 9-2, including winning their last seven games.
“Miranda fit in seamlessly almost instantly. Her shooting helped our offense reach another level,” said coach Tim Page. “She’s a good kid who works hard and is always trying to get better. It’s been great having her at Boyd.”
Medley seems to have found a home at Boyd, where she loves to shoot from deep. Medley hit 20 triples in January’s full slate of games, showing great comfort in JK Stanley Gymnasium. She’s also money at the line, hitting 70 percent at the charity stripe, and has 30 steals while building Boyd’s TSIAA record to 9-2.
Her scoring has only increased with more comfort in the offense. She finished the month by scoring 20 or more points in four of the team’s final games – all blowout wins. She hit her season high twice, scoring 22 points against Zion Christian and Riverside Christian. Medley is coming off a 20-point, six-rebound performance Monday where she knocked down a season-best five 3-pointers.
“Her game is getting more well-rounded. She’s been finishing the paint more as teams close out on her and she’s working on facilitating for others too,” said Page.
Medley could be marching her way to 1,000 points at Boyd if she continues her current scoring pace and stars even more as a senior. She’s already turning into the latest in a long line of great Lady Bronco scorers with teammate Laney Copeland (who hit the 1,000-point mark Monday).
Fans can catch Medley and the Lady Broncos at home Friday night against St. Andrews Sewanee. Tip-off for the girls game is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
