Lloyd C. Bird’s Medford team had yet another perfect season, and with the help of head coach Crystal Barker and assistant coach Benny Speight, they were able to go undefeated in the year of 2016-17.
Coach Speight says that there were many memorable moments during the season, but one of the best memories was watching player David Johnson hit the half court shot. David was a very key piece to the team weather it was passing the ball to make sure his teammates got a chance to shoot the ball or making the shot himself; all-around-player is the way to describe David.
All thirteen players were an exceptional part of the undefeated season, working together as a team was always a stronghold that nobody could break.
Coach Speight wanted to send a special thanks to Ms. Lucas’s first period class for all of the support and time that they’ve put into getting the team ready for every game and every successful win. Speight says that this season has been the best season because of the impact of Mrs. Lucas and her mass communication class has had.
He said that having the support and having people support the kids and put them in the light has been great.
