The State Tournament this weekend…

March 12, 2009

Coach Matt is in Fresno for the weekend for the State Tournament. It’s a long, 5 day weekend, and the events start today.

The sophomores will be participating in the Sophomore Showcase there this weekend as well, where they will have another opportunity to play in front of 4-year coaches and try to get more interest.


End of Season Meeting…

March 4, 2009

Yesterday we had our End of Season Meeting.  We recapped the overall season, then talked about what’s ahead for all of us. 

To the sophomores, we went over what they need to do to prepare themselves to move on to the next level. Although the season’s over, they’re not finished yet.  They’re still expected to keep up academically and continue to improve their basketball skills so that they can make an impact on their next team.  All three players, Leilanie, Scrappy, and Jana, are going to be playing on next year, which is an exciting thing.

To the freshman, we talked about upcoming academic deadlines, then scheduled their individual meetings with Coach Matt.  I used to love individual meetings as a player.  You are able to give your own feedback and talk about how the season went, and you find out what you need to work on for the upcoming season.  You leave those meetings with motivation, ready to put last season behind you and work to go on to bigger and bigger.

Our Season Banquet has been scheduled for Sunday, April 26th.  More details will follow as we get closer to the date.

End of the Season…

March 2, 2009

We meet for the last time as a team at our End of the Season Meeting this Tuesday.  We’ll be recapping the season, going over upcoming dates (End of the Season banquet, spring conditioning, Sophomore Showcase for the sophomores, etc…).  The girls will then get a few weeks off to relax, recoup, and rejuvenate.

As a coaching staff, we’re still going to be hitting it hard.  Besides organizing things for the end of the year (preparing for the banquet and the State Tournament), we have to already think ahead to next year.  We’re going to be devoting ourselves to recruiting and planning for next season.
