Head Coach Roddy Brown Jr. noted, “We are beginning to retain concepts and habits that are conducive to building a winning program. Our kids are extremely young with 5 freshmen and 2 middle school students, but thanks to Coach Neil they have come into our program ready to work hard and give maximum effort. We are now in a position to compete with anyone on any given night and it’s time for us to focus on our attention to detail and individual skill development."
Coach Neil Stough and Chris Oman helped lead our Middle School team to 29-17 victory over Out-of-Door on Monday afternoon! He was impressed their effort and relentlessness over the course of a hard fought game and believes that this bunch (that has no eighth graders) has an extremely high ceiling as long as they make layups, remain focused and coachable, and have fun.
Up Next: Middle School plays Friday afternoon on the road vs. Northside Christian at 4pm, while the Varsity girls open the curtain at the Crisp vs. Calvary Christian on Friday, December 7, at 6pm.
