Although the end of the basketball season is approaching, all students can already look back and see the amount of effort and change that has occurred with each team. As the teams prepare for potential playoff games, it’s time to really check in on how the teams are doing and what they are doing to make them work their magic on the court.

“Over the season so far, my team has come a long way. When I started tryouts, I knew we had a lot of talent and potential, but as a new coach I was apprehensive about how I was going to unlock that potential in my athletes. While fundamentals are a big part of practice still, the majority of the team has been training at the next level . They are learning new plays on offense and defense, how to create scoring opportunities and how to set each other up for success as a team. I’m not training boys on this team anymore, at this point in the season, they are becoming young men,” say Junior Varsity Basketball Coach Jordan Greskamp.

The guys and girls of each team both bond throughout practice and outside of the school. Each practice consists of team stretching, conditioning, fundamental work, learning and reviewing plays, goal setting, and more conditioning to conclude their practice. Outside of school, teammates go play and practice basketball.

“My favorite part/moment would be during the games or just messing around when we scrimmage during practice. My favorite game so far is the Greenville Tech game because it was our first win and their first loss,”  says Junior Varsity Basketball Player Matthew Harper.

The Girls’ Basketball team is having a great season so far, holding a great 7-5 record. This is a huge improvement from last year, and the girls have really made a name for themselves this season.

“I really enjoyed seeing the team’s progression this year, especially from the years past. My job is to give the team the absolute best chance of winning. The goal this year is to improve each game and hopefully will we make the playoffs,” say Girls Basketball Coach Brooke Godwin.

As the season comes to a close, many players reflect on the high points, the low points, and the moments they will never forget.

“We have succeeded a lot this season. We’ve also created a more profound love for the team,” says Varsity Basketball Player Justice Collins.

The Boy’s Varsity is doing an amazing job on the court, with  each player has contributing a lot of talent to the team and  bonding throughout the season.

“I think that over the season our team has improved a lot. We plan to finish the season out strong with some wins,”  says Varsity Senior Zavier Mattison.

When the gym sold out for this year’s homecoming game, everyone there really got to experience the talent  that the Varsity Coach Gordon Stallard has put together. The team shows strong communication, and they all seem to work very well together.

“If we bring out those wins, I think this will bring the team even closer together by the end of the season,” says Mattison.
