Coach Josh Reeves was hired on at our school several years ago and has proven his worth over that time span having by becoming star teacher and guided his team last season to a state championship. It was only the second in girls’ school history.
Reeves was given a series of questions, and did an excellent job of laying out his plans for the season answering them.
“Goals for the year are the same every year. compete for championships. We would love to be in contention every year for for a state championship, but we have to be able to compete in region before we can start looking ahead too far.
Bringing back Tatyana Davis (20ppg), Autumn Woodward, Salina Fortune, twins Sarah and Elizabeth Couch, Alisha Ellis, Cailee Anderson, Aris Hubbard, Morgan Walker, and Lou Reid from the team last year is a big plus for us. Our lineup will be strong and we will be continuing looking to establish a rotation going forward before we start region play. The coaches and players are excited to have so many girls who are comfortable in our system coming back.
We will probably play as much MCHS up-tempo as we ever have. We have some solid size in the middle but a lot of guards that will have to be interchangeable and full of energy off the bench. We may be a better top to bottom shooting team this year.
Replacing the seniors that left is hard so we are more focused on replacing the roles they played: their scoring, energy, and leadership. Those girls meant a lot to this program and that was a special team. We are looking to form our own team identity and form a championship team out of the girls still here. Having the championship pedigree from the years past will defiantly help. Our girls have been working very hard and are ready to see how good they can be this year.”
Thanks to coach Reeves for all his hard work and dedication as well as his unwavering love and support for the young ladies in one of our most successful programs.
