Mendenhall boys now at (5-0) on the season and from their head man, Coach Sherman, the Mendenhall Mustangs have their sights set on going Undefeated this season…Coach Sherman has been coaching boys and girls basketball at Mendenhall for 11 years and he says this is one of his better teams…This 2019-2020 Mendenhall Mustangs team is playing team ball and this team according to Coach Sherman, is playing and working together like a “Family”…”This is Family Basketball”, says Coach Sherman…

“The toughest team we have faced so far is Southwest Guilford..They are very well coached and they have very solid team”, said Coach Sherman…”We have to go to their place to play them next time and it won’t be easy”…”Southwest Guilford, Jamestown and Southeast Guilford, those look to be the toughest teams in our conference”…

Coach Sherman said that Mane and Wiggins are the best tandem around the county, and with Mane an eighth-grader and Wiggins a seventh-grader, the two will have to “do the do” this season and make this a great year for Mendenhall Middle School Boys Basketball….Coach Sherman said Mane should be headed to Page and Wiggins might be a wildcard…But, with the talk of this year’s team, Coach Sherman said he had coached some very good kids/players over his time with the Mustangs, and two of those would be girls basketball players and those two would be Reagan Kargo, a senior now at Northwest Guilford High School, and Reagan Maynard, a junior at Page High School…”Both Reagans were very good basketball players for Mendenhall”, said Coach Sherman…Another top talent Coach Sherman worked with at Mendenhall was a guard named Isis, and she is now one of the top players for the Glenn Bobcats, one of the top-ranked 3-A girls basketball teams in the state…

We had two Southeast Guilford grads coaching against each other in this contest today, at Kernodle Middle School….Leslie Britt coaching the visiting Mendenhall Mustangs and Bret Garrett coaching the home squad, the Kernodle Cougars…Coach Garrett from SEG, and Coach Britt, also from Southeast Guilford High School…
Coach Britt played for current SEG Athletic Director Shawyn Newton when she was at Southeast Guilford, and Coach Britt went on to college down in South Carolina, attending Benedictine….

Coach Britt said her Mendenhall team has lost one game and that was to Northern Guilford, and Coach Britt said Northern was the toughest team in the conference, in her opinion…Coach Britt said the key to her team’s win over Mendenhall today was the fact that the Mendenhall Mustangs “played as a team, had fun and got it done”.

Leslie Britt said she was proud that her girls played team ball and that they did a good job of moving the ball around and filling the passing lanes…

According to Coach Britt, Makayla Carney, an eighth-grader, has been one of her top players, and Coach Britt said Carney is very passionate about the game of basketball and she knows the team and what it takes to make the team tick…Britt also said her team has done a good job hitting the posts this season, and with girls that can take it to the hole, everyone must realize their role, and realize that there will be chances to put back missed shots, and the Mendenhall post players need to play their game and their chances are coming, and that means our guards have to see them too….
