On Friday, December 4, the Girls Varsity Basketball team traveled to Valley View. Due to Covid-19, fans were required to wear masks when not socially distanced. The team has been working hard in the gym everyday and grown closer as a team. Sophomore Georgia Haggard said, “My favorite part of this season so far is getting to know the team, there have been some ups and downs, but we are adjusting and working together better and better every day. Our coaches are new this year and I can already see how big of an impact they will have on our team, they have helped us improve our skills on the court and off the court with our teamwork and lifting each other up like Christ-like athletes. Mustang basketball has always been an amazing experience for me. I cannot wait for the rest of the season to see our team improve and grow closer.” The girls fought hard through the entire game but fell short in the end. The final score was 33-42. When Coach Ashlan Miles was asked how she stays motivated and prepares for the next game after a loss she said, “Lose the game, but never lose the lesson.” The Lady Mustangs’ next game is December 11 against Cornerstone Christian.
