On November 14, the Morton Mustang girls basketball team had their first home game and brought home a win.

“This is my first season as head coach. I am excited to get things going and to see how the season plays out. We have a great group of girls that have put a lot of work in to get prepared for the season,” said Coach Brown. 

Whereas most students think Morton is only a soccer school, our Mustang basketball players — both boys and girls — have proven themselves; they show their best every time on the court.

“As a coach, I am looking for ways to get the school community involved in our season. I want to do everything I can to give our student athletes the attention they deserve. I am working hard on getting our girls exposure around the school. One thing I love about our student body is the support they show our athletes. We consistently have one of the most fun atmospheres to play in. Our girls love it! I want to do what I can to make sure our stands are full when we play at home. Come check us out,” said coach Brown.

Come and support our girl’s and boy’s basketball teams. It will boost their confidence and mean a lot to them. 

“I can improve on having better confidence because I lack confidence in myself,” basketball player senior Victor Garret said.

With that being said, fans play an important part in boosting team spirit and player’s faith in themselves.  Players tend to put forth their best effort when fans are rooting them on.  And, players play a part in supporting each other by pointing out what players are doing well ans working with each other to improve.  

“I feel like everyone needs to improve on themselves because no one is perfect,” basketball player Quinn Garret said.
