Chloe Kernan loves basketball. She began playing in second grade and immediately fell in love with the sport. Playing on travel teams has helped her gain more confidence and it’s paying off nicely now. As an eighth grader on the Cape Fear Academy varsity team, Kernan is the unquestioned floor leader. Her play last week at the CFA Holiday Classic made her an easy choice for player of the week. Despite playing with a high ankle sprain, Kernan averaged 20.7 points in three games.
