Coaches Season Summary

Coming into the 2015-2016 basketball season there was definitely a buzz and excitement surrounding this girls' basketball team. They had a very successful summer league and were flying high after winning a second consecutive volleyball state title. This team was unique because not only did they know they had the pieces to make a run for a basketball state title, they expected to win it. For me the feeling was weird but very satisfying. I've never coached a team that there was such high expectations around and I loved it. This team needed up not only winning the state title but doing it in going away fashion, beating every 1A opponent by double digits even in the state tournament. It felt like to Lord's hand of favor was on this group and they, the girls knew it. This team relied heavily on strong senior leadership and experience mixed with a powerful sophomore class who's done nothing but win since they came into high school. It is going to be hard to say good bye to this group of seniors who were not only elite players for our team, but they meant so much to our school and to us. That being said I believe they've helped instill a winning tradition and expectation around Country Christian basketball that will carry on going forward. That combined with lots of quality players in our youth programs ultimately means our teams will keep on winning, which is a lot of fun and a testament to our school.
