Since the boys’ and girls’ basketball seasons are happening at the same time, our rowdies are going to have trouble cheering for both, so come out and support your County Hornets Basketball teams!
Freshman, Brooklyn Borjon, said she is, “very excited for this year’s basketball season and she’s really hoping they have an amazing season.” Borjon said her favorite part about basketball is, “pushing herself to new limits and seeing what new things she can achieve.” Borjon thinks the most important think she can offer to her team is her dedication. Borjon promises to, “try better and roll with the punches.” Borjon is on the freshmen team and her jersey number 14.
Sophomore, Corbin Spear, said his personal goals for this year’s basketball season is to “improve as an overall player and to be someone his team can rely on, and for them to win as many games as possible.” Spears’s overall goal for him and his team is, “to be the fastest, strongest, and toughest team out there.” Spear also thinks it’s important that they don’t just win game but that they “work together, get better and grow as a team.” Spear is on the County’s Junior Varsity team, plays center and wears jersey number 41.
Sophomore, Amijulae Banks, personal goals are for her to, “just get better overall.” “I went into basketball thinking I didn’t want to play but I’m already feeling the opposite” stated Banks, “we work so hard and we will go far this year.” Banks explained that this is her first year playing high school basketball and she “hopes to grow as an athlete.” Banks is on the C and Junior Varsity team; she’s plays post and wears jersey number 24.
Coach, Matthew Eades, says he’s “very excited about the start of the season, every start of the season is exciting.” Eades is especially excited for this year because there is so many players getting their first chance to play varsity. Eades said, “the best part of being a coach is seeing players develop their skills and learn life lessons through basketball.” “I have been coaching for seven to eight years and the bond we have with our guys is one of my favorite parts.” stated Eades, “we have players that have gone on to play in college, armed forces, a lot come back to visit us. The bond of a coach and a player is forever.” “Some strengths this year is our athleticism and length, which will really help us out on the defensive end of the court.”
