On any given game day, there are likely multitudes of women -both mothers and spirited supporters- among the large crowd of cheering fans. Countless hours are spent both inside and outside of the gym by these ladies that contribute to the program. Not only do they cheer on the teams as they play, but many also do anything from washing uniforms to preparing food for local tournaments.

While most have a general concept of the game, some are left curious about the actual plays being executed. In hopes to help include these humble contributors to the program in its entirety, Hoops ‘N Heels was hosted by the boys’ basketball teams Wednesday night. This event was dedicated to teaching women the plays the teams run and practice them as well.

Now that I have a better understanding of the plays and where the players should be, I’ll know who to yell at during games.”

— Marti Peel

Around 30 women spent two hours setting screens, making basket cuts and shooting open jump shots. While it appeared to be tiring, many described the experience as nothing short of fun and helpful.

“That was so much fun,” Marti Peel said. “Now that I have a better understanding of the plays and where the players should be, I’ll know who to yell at during games.”

Wendy Stewart also agreed in the helpfulness of the event.

“I look forward to being able to recognize some of the plays that happen during the ballgames,” she said. “I now have a better understanding of our basketball system.”

    I just think this is awesome. I also went to BIC and was apart of the girls basketball team. But this right here just shows were the MUSTANGS heart is. I am so thankful that now my child will grow up being a MUSTANG. #PRIDE #proudtobeaMUSTANG
