Seventh-day Adventist faith forces Amber Morman to sit out

"Cleveland freshman post Amber Morman might have played her last basketball game of the season Monday evening, when the Lady Raiders lost to Walker Valley in the District 5-AAA consolation game. She hopes she hasn't, but unfortunately she won't be able to influence the outcome when her team plays tonight at White County at 8 EST.

Morman is a Seventh-day Adventist and observes a no-activity Sabbath from sundown Friday until sundown Saturday. That means missing a lot of varsity basketball games.

Of the 27 games the team has played this season, Morman has played in 15. And she had to miss the first two weeks of practice due to a death in the family, which set her behind. At this point, she can only hope the Lady Raiders can pull out a win tonight. If so, she would be able to play Monday in the Region 3-AAA semifinals and, potentially, Wednesday in the championship game."
