Morenci Boys' Basketball
The Morenci Boys Basketball Program has developed into one of the most consistent programs in 2A over the past several season. Qualifying for the playoffs regularly and developing into a winning program which has produced athletes to play at the collegiate level. The Wildcats have big goals for the coming years and have their eyes set on competing at the highest level possible. The program is in constant development as the program has gone on team training trips to San Diego, CA and Dallas, TX as well. These trips allow the student athletes to gain valuable exposure and a chance to see what the rest of the country has to offer both culturally and on the basketball court. The biggest key to our program and what is conveyed every day to our student athletes is “Attitude & Effort” with these two things anything is possible. Playing with a great attitude, being a great teammate, and putting the team before yourself is the foundation of our program attitude. Putting forth great effort in studying and learning the game, physically playing the game, and being the best player you can be and understanding your job and role within the team will allow our program and team to play with great effort.
You can also follow the team on Facebook (Morenci Wildcats Boys Basketball) as the page is updated regularly with info about games, trips, fundraising, and practices. If you are interested in being part of the program please contact Coach Hepper as he will be able to relay all of the necessary info to you. With the AIA allow teams to practice year round the Wildcats generally have a practices schedule set for the summer, and fall to lead into the winter season.
We hope to see many of you in attendance of our games and be a part of our program whether that be cheering from the stands, playing, or supporting Morenci Athletics. Once a Wildcat, Always a Wildcat!
