The 2017-2018 Lady Mustang basketball team has been hard at work preparing for the upcoming season.
Four seniors who have been on the varsity team since 9th grade are set to make a final run at a state championship that has eluded them the last two years. The 2015-16 season ended in a close loss to Riverview in the finals, and last year injuries sidetracked the Lady Mustangs’ quest for the 4A crown.
This year’s squad will again be led by Christyn Williams, ESPN’s No. 1 ranked player in the country and recent UCONN signee, along with fellow seniors Kelson Miller, Jenna Davis and Alexa Mashburn, who have all shown great leadership in early season workouts.
This 2017-2018 edition of Lady Mustangs should be exciting to watch and are taking on an extremely difficult schedule, competing in a tournament at Paragould against some of the top teams in the state, taking part in the always-competitive Dandra Thomas Classic at Conway High School, and traveling to the prestigious tournament after Christmas in Collierville, Tennesee.
This really should be a fun team to watch! We’re are a little short on home games this year, so don’t miss the opportunity to get out to Mustang Mountain and watch some games.
