FEARGHAIL NIECES -- BASKETBALL PROUD! (published 12-19-2021)


On Sunday afternoon, 12/19/2021, the sun is starting to shine a little. The summer-in-winter, which has been cloudy, too warm, and rainy, may be ending. I have had this article in working draft form, since before my article of Saturday, December 11, 2021 – in which I mentioned the 11/30/2021 basketball game. I would rather write and/or edit for a living. I'm working on it. Y'all help me, if you can!

The two daughters of my youngest brother and his wife are following their mother's basketball heritage. We are proud of our Fearghail nieces – not just in basketball.

Lilliana Ferrell

I will start with our youngest niece. She is following the heritage of both her mother and her older sister.

The Rogersville Review, Weekend Edition (12/4-5/2021), listed the local area girls and boys grade school and middle school basketball teams. The image, below, is from The Rogersville Review, 2021-22 Bulls Gap Lady Bulldogs photograph and remarks. The photo is by Jim Bell.


I see a Ferrell! She is number 45, kneeling in the center! Lilliana Ferrell is a member of the 2021-22 Bulls Gap Middle School Lady Bulldogs. Her older sister was a member of the 2019-2020 basketball team that made history. I honored her older sister, in my Sunday, February 9, 2020, article “BULLS GAP MIDDLE SCHOOL LADY BULLDOGS: STATE FINAL FOUR!!”

In the same The Rogersville Review, Weekend Edition (12/4-5/2021), a 12/2/2021 article and photographs by Randy Ball recorded “Byington leads Lady Eagles over Lady Bulldogs.”

Lilliana Ferrell was one of two Lady Bulldogs, who each lead the team, by each scoring five points!


The Randy Ball photograph caption reads “Lady Bulldog Lilliana Ferrell pressures” (name mentioned).

Ariel Ferrell

If you read my article of Saturday, December 11, 2021, mentioned previously, you will know my frustration, on 11/30/2021. Once again, my work life had forestalled my personal life. Let's move on!


The above photograph, by Dawn Lambert, is from The Rogersville Review, Weekend Edition (Saturday-Sunday, November 27-28, 2021), page 1B article, by Jim Beller, Sports Editor, “Cherokee Opens Hardee's with Rout of Lady Vikings.”

Way to go, Ariel Ferrell (#32)! Enemies of any type need to be harassed! I have a deep and spiritual point in my mind, as I write, but I will not delve into that deeper subject, in this article.

The Rogersville Review, 12/1/2021, Midweek Edition, page 2B, by Staff Report, article is “Lady Chiefs Finishes Hardee’s Classic with 4th Place.” (Would “Finish” not be correct?) Good work, Lady Chiefs!


My youngest brother and his wife keep us informed, on the various basketball games, for their two daughters. Additional The Rogersville Review articles, by subscription only, are known to Mrs. Appalachian Irishman and me. We have both the postal delivery and online copies. This article does not update the most recent Fearghail clan basketball news, in Hawkins County.

We are proud of our Fearghail clan nieces – not just in basketball. They are being raised by their godly parents. The tradition of biblical faith and family is continuing to the next generation. We are proud of our nieces, win or lose in basketball, since they are continuing the biblical heritage of their godly ancestors.
