The time of year many of us have been waiting for is here! Basketball season is here for our Yellow Jacket teams. Both of our Yellow Jacket varsity teams have started a great season. Coach Harrell, the varsity boys head coach, has gotten the boys in shape and ready for a competitive season. Coach Cummings, the varsity girls head coach, is ready for the girls to take it all the way this year to win the State Championship!

Our Lady Yellow Jackets made it to the state semi finals last season and lost. That loss has given our Lady Yellow Jackets great motivation to push harder this season to take it all the way this time. Coach Cummings says, “The girls have really improved in our half court offense. Last year we had some times in the game when we struggled to get things out of our half court sets but this year we are much more versatile and the girls have worked extremely hard in the off season to improve individual skill sets that make us much better offensively.” Aaliyah Bell, 10th grade varsity point guard, says, “I’m most excited about seeing each other grow together as a team and reach our team goal.”

December 2, 2016, we had the winter sports pep rally which included both basketball varsity teams and wrestling. Our Lady Yellow Jackets came out looking hype for a great season and even did a basketball edition Mannequin Challenge in front of the whole student body. Our boys came out too with great intensity as if they were about to play, shooting jump shots and, best of all, the DUNKS! “We all have been working hard and I see a great season ahead for us,” Bryson Mozone, a player on the boys varsity team, says

The varsity yellow jackets are not the only ones making great progress though. We can’t forget about both of our JV basketball teams. Both teams have started their season undefeated. The JV players have been working just as hard to improve and make progress for the season. All four of our NAHS basketball teams need as much student support this season as they can get! Our Yellow Jackets continue to practice and work hard to win games. For our Varsity teams they will also do the same thing to reach our ultimate goals….Winning the state championship!
