Coaches Season Summary

   Country Christian girls’ basketball has been on quit a run, going to the top eight-site six out of the last nine years, finishing 2nd in state in 2014-15 and then winning the title last year in 2015-16. Coming into 2016-17 I wasn’t sure what to expect, we graduated an incredible group of five senior guards, three of which went on to play sports in college.

   As a coach coming into this season there were lots of unanswered questions: how we were going to replace those guards, with no seniors where was our leadership going to come from, what is our depth going to be and what positions will each player play…. With a really REALLY tough schedule early on and a decent amount of losses, it was hard to tell exactly how good this team was, but what was evident was they were all very coachable and had a strong will and desire to win/be successful. I will say we had some bumps along the way figuring out each person’s roll, teaching our leaders how to lead and blending a big, strong & competitive sophomore group with an athletic, skilled & experienced junior group. That being said I couldn’t be more proud of how it all came together. As a coach I can say that this year was one of the most satisfying groups I’ve ever coached. They battled and we coached every second of every game until the final buzzer and these girls found a way to battle through fatigue, injuries, inconsistency and all sorts of other obstacles and still managed to find themselves in the title game again for the third year in a row. I felt like this team forged their own identity…….no longer being a part of those graduated kids story, but being their own story. I’m beyond proud of this group and their accomplishment…...and Lord willing, everyone is back again next year!!!
