Basketball Looking for a Fast Break


As the basketball season begins hopes are high for coaches and players. “We’re excited about the season. We have a group of young men that are excited to compete and that play hard all the time. As far as expectations, they are the same as always. We expect to play hard and at the end of the day we expect to be district champs,” said Coach Adam Cline.

Coach Karon Martinson also expects great things from her JV team. “My expectations for this years team are to win more games, learn how to score and be aggressive on both sides of the ball. It may take a few games and even a few losses. The Lady Devils that are coach-able, pay attention to detail and show a willingness to learn from their mistakes will determine my starting five.”

In the first game of the season the JV girls beat Crane 38-19.  The Varsity girls were defeated in an intense neck-to-neck game. With a little over two minutes to go they were down sixteen points and came back to within three points by the end.

“I feel like we need improvement, but every mistake we made is fixable. As the season comes, we will be ready. Personally, I feel ready, I feel we are going to do great things,” said Senior Bryleigh Macgregor.

Coach Tiffany Potts was not disappointed with the first game. “I think every time we step on the floor we become a better team, so obviously I expect to win. My expectations are always to win that district title and play long into February. It will take dedication, but it can be done.”
