14-2 Run not Enough to Overcome Senior Night Lost

I could see in their faces that our seniors wanted this win. The eyes told the story of years of determination, dedication, hard work, and let downs. Senior night is the time for fans, parents, and coaches to bid farewell to their student athletes. A time for a final applause, one final pat on the

Mavericks Gives Christmas Joy to Veterans

During the holidays, it is an exciting time to see family and the opportunity to provide joy to others that are often forgotten.

They do not beat themselves and have an excellent rotation on defense. I advise my team we would have to be smart

Defensive Pressure Leads Mavericks to 1st Win

I was nervous about the response we would have after the beating we received from Shadow Creek High School. As a coach, you worry about your players coming out too aggressive or having a hangover of the last game. It was our senior leader, Aaron Hawthorne that brought the players together and discussed his vision

The Triumph Of Defeat

Losing can reveal a person character in a humbling, and vulnerable moment. Michael Jordan once mentioned that his greatest disappointment was not making the varsity basketball team. There were 15 roster spots and he was not a part of it. Jordan locked himself in the room and cried the night away. Then he picked himself
