TCHS Lady Braves’ Arlei and Kalei Cummings
I have written about the two sets of sisters that will be playing for TCHS Lady Braves Basketball this upcoming season but, in my old age, I forgot there is a 3rd set of sisters that will be taking the floor for the Lady Braves.
Arlei and Kalei Cummings (Parents, Peyton and Candace Cummings) are excited to be a part of Lady Braves Basketball and will be looking to contribute to the team’s success. Arlei and Kalei have been playing basketball since they were old enough to dribble a ball, their mom told me. They did competition cheer for 3 years, but decided that they wanted to focus more on basketball.
Arlei and Kalei really started getting serious about basketball their 6th grade year, their dad, Payton Cummings, has coached them all through their younger years. Good luck to these young ladies, as their season officially gets started on Nov. 7th at Alcorn Central, and to all our Braves, Lady Braves and their coaches.
