Meet the Mustangs!!

Meet the Mustangs!!

We’re kicking off the Women’s and Men’s basketball season with MEET THE MUSTANGS, with the new teams. Women’s varsity, Women’s Junior varsity, Men’s varsity, Men’s junior varsity, and Men’s freshman team. The event consists of them presenting the middle school boys’ and girls’ teams with a free throw contest and the high schoolers with a three-point line shoot-off and a dunk contest. The coaches are very proud and excited to present this season’s teams, and we are excited to see where the season will lead.
