A Description of the Lady Jags

The lady jags are a team located at Carroll Academy in Tennessee. The academy is for young adults who have became lost in the world because of family or behavior issues.

The academy is known for their appearance on ESPN in 2013 for ESPN’s program about sport related inspiring stories usually about Michael Jordan, Shaquille O’neal, Michael Phelps and more. The story is, in 2013 Carroll Academy had they're normal girls basketball season but this year was different because the girls in it were more fussy and badly behaved then in the past and the coaches redirected them in the right direction. The appearance of A academy for delinquents was a drawback for ESPN but they couldn't pass off the total goldmine and possibility of changing a young person's behavior issues.

Most of the girls had at least one interaction with police in their lives, ¾ of them had experimented with drugs or alcohol or both and had anger issues. The root of most of these problems were either their parents or anger, and only 1 of them had a fine family life.

The girls were sent to Carroll because of their branding as bad children their whole life which I guess caused the anger and rage in them, they were described for years as having bad character.
