Ever since sports started to reemerge, everyone was excited for their favorite sport to return to the limelight. And, as you might expect, the return of Basketball has been a much anticipated one. The season began with all of the Boys Teams their first games on November 13.

MVHS Basketball fans will be happy to know that the team is as ready as ever for this season with many of the coaches reaffirming this.

“The team this year is very excited to finally get our season started,” Coach Galyon said. “They have some normalcy in this crazy year of 2020. The team’s morale is high and our expectations are even higher.“

The boy’s teams are currently 1-1 in wins and loses.

The Girl’s Basketball team is also doing quite well for themselves starting earlier on, currently standing at 3 wins and 2 losses so far this season. As expected with the start of the season, there were some bumps but overall they are keeping a steady course ahead, with Coach Russell believing so as well remarking on teams plans and the all around mood of the season so far.

“Right now I think the girls are just happy to be playing. Morale is extremely high and we have gotten off to a great start.” Coach Russell said. “Our main goals right now are to win district and get past the 1st round of the playoffs. I think the sky’s the limit for this team and if we continue to improve it could be a very special season.”

Both teams have done pretty well so far, each having more wins than losses, proving that, even though there may be some bumps along the way, the teams are ready to win.
