Bowling Green School’s Callie Seal

Bowling Green junior Callie Seal plays basketball for the Lady Buccaneers and is beginning her second year as a starter. She has played for the team since her freshman year. Seal plays point guard and shooting guard.
Last year, Seal was a first-team all-district player and she made the South State All-Tournament Team.
Seal is also a member of Bowling Green’s dance team.
“Callie is a big part of our team,” Bowling Green coach Barry Seal said. “She hit some big shots for us last year, and really tremendously over this summer, I’ve seen (her) mature and grow up to be a leader for us. Leading by example this year compared to in the past. Really taking the game serious and trying to elevate herself, which is elevating us as a team.”
