With both teams looking to add wins to their record, Redhawk basketball is taking on the Reedy Lions at home Friday, with the girls’ team playing at 6:00 p.m., and the boys’ team following at 7:15 p.m.

“Early on [in the season] it’s physical,” girls’ head coach Ross Reedy said. “Now, it’s more attacking the mental side of things, so that our kids can see what’s in front of them when they’re in games, analyzing film, and things like that.”

Now that there’s only six District 9-5A games left, the Redhawks are focused on what’s to come.  

“We’ve put ourselves in a fortunate position,” Reedy said. “We are approaching a good possibility of making the playoffs and also having a possible chance of winning district.”

Meanwhile on the boys’ side, the team has eight games left in District 9-5A. After starting district play with five straight losses, the team has won five straight and only one game out of the final playoff spot. 

“Honestly we have had more attention to detail on the defensive end,” boys’ head coach Stephen Friar said. “Our seniors have really started to take ownership of the team and create a lot of buy in, so I think that’s the big thing; starting to buy in a lot more to each other and trust each other and so it makes our team look a lot better.”
