AMS Bobcat Basketball Season Preview 2014-15

The Arlington Middle School Boys Basketball Team hosts their season opener on October 27 at 4:30 pm against Schilling Farms.

Coach Lang Wiseman, in his fifth year with the Bobcats, hopes to compete again for a District title. Last year’s team went undefeated in regular season and district play, clinching the District and County Championships before falling in in the state semifinals.

“We have plenty of size and athleticism to be able to compete with anyone we play,” Wiseman commented. “We’re short on experience, though, so the season will be a work in progress.” Wiseman also credits the dedication of his assistant coaches, DJ Daughtery and Rod Davis, for the program’s success.

A key player returning to the team is point guard Sam Wiseman,who earned All-District Tournament Team honors in 2014. Wiseman was the leading scorer in last Saturday’s Jamboree matchup with Collierville with 12 points. The Bobcats defeated the Dragons 18-16.

The Arlington Middle School Girls Basketball team will then take on last year’s Regional Champs when they host Schilling Farms after the boys’ game.

With only one returning starter–5’11” Morgan Richardson–Coach Annette Jeter says that the team’s inexperience is its weakness in defending their 2014 District title. Jeter adds that though young, the team is eager to play hard through a tough schedule against experienced foes.
