Lucy Mitchell led the Leopards with 17 pts. and some key free throws in the win over Foley in the Championship of the Gulf Coast Holiday Classic. This was the 1st piece of hardware for the Lady Leopards since finishing 2nd in the AISA State Final in 2006.
Countdown to GAME @ GULF SHORES 6 pm (Jan 5/07)
Our mission statement is to be "the hardest working team in the state". It has been proven in our program and others that spectacular achievements are preceeded by unspectacular preparation.
Lady Leopards are responsible for bringing 2 things to the table each day:
Our program can be successful if we do not make any excuses for ourselves and the attitude and effort toward the direction of our team goals are positive.
Our philosophy for the our team is to force an uptempo style by various forms of defensive pressure in the 1/2 court, pressing full court, as well as primary and secondary fast break. All while emphasing fundamental, unselfish decision making.
Our coaches will push players to achieve greatness from themselves at levels they never felt physically possible.Our coaches will put Lady Leopards in situations that are physically and mentally challenging. We as coaches will only place a player in a situation where she is capable of succeeding. We will strive to prepare each player to have the tools to adapt to any situation in any given game.
Our players, coaching staff(s) and family members continue to make great sacrifices to make something great... This great something is... "LADY LEOPARD BASKETBALL". .
