Woodbury Central’s basketball season is right around the corner. Girls basketball coach Matt Jenness is excited for this season to start. “This is a great group of girls, and I am excited to watch them grow as the year goes on,” he says. “We are going to have a lot of fun and a lot of success.” At the beginning of every season, basketball girls want to win Conference, the conference tournament, and the District. “If we don’t start our season with high goals, then why are we playing?” asks Coach Jenness.
To get where they want to be, basketball girls play extremely hard every day. This season “we play a tough schedule,” Coach Jenness continues, “that will help us get better and be prepared to win Conference and District.”
After each game, the girls’ basketball teams look to improve for the next one. “We do this by owning our mistakes and learning from them and, of course, to work our tails off,” Coach Jenness says with a smile. According to Coach, this year's seniors are “a great group” who “have had a ton of success.”
Coach is very enthusiastic about the seniors. “I expect them to be great leaders, and show the younger players what it means to be a part of the WC girls’ basketball.”
Coach Jenness expects all the players “to work hard and get better every day, so we are playing our best basketball when it matters in late January and February. I also expect them to be great teammates and have a lot of fun.”
