It’s theirs for the taking

By Michael Cotton

 

They are 3 games into the district season and already they can be considered the favorite to win the race. After defeating Kennard, Oakwood and Groveton Centerville, the Trojans clearly have the upper hand in the race. Two of those wins were on the road. That is a bonus because in district play it usually boils down to who can win on the road. The Trojans now hold wins over both Kennard and Groveton- Centerville at their place.

Battle for supremacy

By Michael Cotton

Looking at their record, the Oakwood Panthers wouldn’t seem to be a likely contender for the district championship. However don’t be fooled by that. They are actually a very good basketball team. They are averaging over 55 points a game and have been in almost every one of their 15 games. They are 1-0 in district play after a 90-20 victory over Richards before the holiday break.

Prepping for district play

By Michael Cotton

 

For the Trojans of Calvert, basketball is equally divided into 3 seasons. First there’s non-district play, which starts around the 15 of November. The Trojans are typically not involved in this part of basketball season. They’re usually busy trying to win a football State Championship and since most of the basketball team comes from the football squad, it seems to reason, why they are late getting started. So typically the Trojans miss out on most of the non-district part of their season.

All about the w’s

By Michael Cotton

The Calvert Trojans are accustomed to winning in basketball. Along with the Mumford Mustangs they are the most successful basketball program in the county. They have made 4 State Tournament appearances, made the State Finals twice, and won a State Championship in 2012. So winning comes naturally, if you are a basketball player in Calvert. Last season they lost in the State Semifinals to Grady 76-75 or they would have made it back to the Finals again.
