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.

By Bobb y Batson

Despite their shaky start, Coach Andrew Daily reports that the Eagles are showing progress and that the younger players are starting to understand that they need to pick up the tempo to be able to compete at the varsity level. “For most of our players, these have been their first varsity games, and they have been playing against veteran teams who have players with several years of varsity competition.” Coach Daily adds, “The scores might not indicate it, but they are improving and learning.”
