Message from the Coaches

Basketball is a sport that uses observation, determination, and the willingness to be coachable and trusted. The athletes encompassed all these traits throughout every game and practice. To be successful and a winner at basketball is not always counted by the scoreboard at the end of the game but by the effort and the willingness to give it your all on the court and in the classroom. We're proud to say that I’ve coached the best group of athletes in the 2019 – 2020 season. 

Let’s Go, Hawks!

Girls Basketball Coach: Coach Bailey

Boys Basketball Coach: Coach Shepard
