Go AMS lady cougars basketball team! Thank you for bringing home another championship!
As most of you know, our lady cougars basketball team has brought home the first conference champ and regular season champ banner/award for the first time in 8 years (2008 was the last time).
The ladies had an awesome undefeated status of 16-0. They wouldn't have been able to do it without their coaches, Mike Watkins and Lauren Powell. These coaches are the best coaches anyone could ever ask for.
This is an incredibly special group of talented girls that were once strangers but are now sisters. Their team captain Porsha Carter stated that; "This season has brought us together so well, but not in a friend way. We have created a sisterhood that is greater and stronger than friends. No one can break this bond!"
Every game they brought their all and didn't give up. They fought through the toughest battles together as a team. They reminded the other schools whose territory they were in, at every home game. They also made new territories at away games. The most important thing is that they stuck together, and became one big family.
I was a proud manager of the team. I looked forward to every game and enjoyed watching them take a dubb every Monday and Thursday, (some tuesdays and Wednesdays)! This is one special group of girls and there will never be another one like it!
