Football and volley ball seasons have come to a close for both CCHS and CCMS. The Lady Panther volleyball team had a good final run for the gold but came up short. CCHS football had a rough road but finished the season with wins. The CCMS Lady Mustang volleyball team became the CWVAC champions, and the Mustang football team had a good year, almost undefeated but losing the last game of the season to Spencer Middle. Not bad for the fall ball teams, but it’s now time for winter sports once again.
So, break out the field jackets, mukluks and hand warmers, it’s time for some hard court basketball action. The Lady Panthers will return to the courts with some speed and strength under the glass and will try once again to make it to the big dance at the state championships. With the talent that is on the court this year they should be on track to put the pressure on.
The Panther basketball team will return with some good talent on the boards and some good shooting from outside the perimeter. It is still too early to tell how their strength will be under the net on rebounds so only time will tell. The Lady Mustangs will return with a strong team to try and take back the CWVAC Championship trophy.
Coach Krechella Evans returns at the helm of the Lady Mustangs and will have some good talent returning from last year’s team as well as some new that will give some good depth off the bench. The girls have some big spots to be filled after some of last year’s team moved up to the Lady Panthers, but they have the talent to do so. The CCMS Mustangs may not have the height of previous years, but what they lack in height will be made up with speed so it could possibly be the year for a double championship from the CCMS basketball team. They’re due; it’s time. The basketball fans from all over the county will be there to root on CCHS and CCMS in their bids for championship glory.
