Chapin, SC (WLTX) --- When your basketball region consists of the likes of Lower Richland and A.C. Flora, finishing third is no small accomplishment.
Such was the case for the Chapin basketball team whose success is due in part to senior Jake Lass.
Jake missed all of last season with a knee injury, but worked his way back and was a major contributor to the Eagles' this year. In a pair of playoff-clinching wins over Dreher and Camden, Jake led the team in scoring.
A senior captain, Jake is a member of the National Honor Society, the Beta Club and is ranked ninth in the senior class.
Jake says he will attend either Clemson or Georgia Tech and major in engineering.
