MCC Wolves Preparing for the Upcoming Season
Its game time for the 2018-19 MCC Wolves, and Head Womens Basketball Coach Betty Lennox and her staff are ready to roll! The upcoming basketball season will be full of excitement with returning players and coaches, along with new players who are eager to show off their talents. Our goal this year is to not only keep the streak alive of finishing with a winning season, but also to make this a CHAMPIONSHIP season. Both Coach Lennox and Assistant Coach Larry Bosch are working hard on plays to show off the special talents of our womens players and place them on the path to both completing their education, and fulfilling their dreams of playing basketball at the next level.
Returning players for this years squad is a group of girls that make the game so exciting. Sophomore guard Kaylee Vantrump, an outside shooter who can light it up from deep range. Slotted at the point guard position is Octavia Lowery, who has a lot of razzle- dazzle in her game, and shows Division I potential. Sophomore Kassidy Snowden is an explosive powerhouse who dominates the floor with speed and rebounds effectively despite her small frame. In addition to these three veterans is an influx of players who bring energy and a new look to this years team.
We look forward to seeing you at the games and supporting our womens program.
Head Coach Lennox's Expectations
The expectations for the women's basketball program at MCC are very high. We will act with class wherever we play. Cheer for our team and applaud our opponents when they play well showing true sportsmanship. We will not yell or argue with officials, players, coaches, opponents, or opposing fans but communicate effectively at all times. As with our players, we represent MCC and the community that we will represent at all times in a positive light.
The one thing that can destroy a team faster than anything that happens on the court is an air of negativity roaring from within the program. The MCC basketball program thrives on uplifting one another and supporting each other on and off the court. Put downs on any level will not be tolerated towards players, coaches, staff or people in the community. Basketball is a team game and your actions reflect on the team and the basketball program as well as the college. It is important to make right decisions on the court, in the classroom, outside school and in the community.
The womens basketball program will be a positive pillar in the community and its members will serve as role models for the college by obeying all drug policies as they are aligned with MCC's standards and the coaching staff.
The women's basketball program will practice open communication and come to practices, games and events ready to give their very best every day.
Champions aren't made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them-a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have the skill, and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill. ― Muhammad Ali
