Ready for the season to begin, the boys’ basketball team laced up for Meyer Madness in order to further their program. On Nov. 11, SHS boys’ basketball team prepared many events to excite fans and spectators for the upcoming ball season. Not only was this year’s warrior team introduced, but there was also appearances by the SMS Warrior teams, Warrior elementary travel teams and the SHS cheer team. Other events included an SHS purple and gold game, a speech by Coach Jameson, youth travel team scrimmages, fan contests, a 50/50 raffle and a three point challenge.
The SHS cheer team had the chance to perform their state qualifying routine and showcase all their hard work at Meyer Madness.
“I’m happy that the team got to show the community their routine that they’ve been working hard on for a while now,” said Head Coach Klarinda Tutterow.
The SHS boys’ basketball team had an opportunity to play in a game-like atmosphere against their own teammates in a scrimmage.
According to Head Basketball Coach Brent Jameson, “The scrimmage allowed players to play in a game like atmosphere because it’s hard to create that at practice. It’s always different to play in front of fans.”
Jameson also said, “Meyer Madness was a great thing for the community because the youth programs were involved. I think more than anything it created some energy and excitement for our program.”
Fans in the SHS cheer block were also pleased with the outcome of Meyer Madness.
“There was a lot of events at Meyer Madness and it got me hyped for the upcoming season,” said Lauren Jeffries (10).
