The 2016-17 Monticello boy’s and girl’s varsity basketball schedules have been released. The Mustangs will once again play a challenging slate as boy’s head coach Gary Spry and girl’s head coach Erica Terrell each enter their second year at the helm of their respective programs.
The boy’s schedule consists of the traditionally competitive Jefferson District opponents, as well as non-district matchups with Region 3A West opponents Heritage-Lynchburg, Waynesboro, and Turner Ashby. The Mustangs first home contest will be a VHSL Benefit Game vs. Cumberland (Nov. 22), and the boy’s return to the NBC29/Daily Progress Holiday Tournament (Dec. 27, 28, 29), with West Potomac from Fairfax County the first round opponent.
The girl’s schedule also includes 14 Jefferson District matchups, along with games against non-district opponents Fort Defiance, Cumberland, Waynesboro. The first home game is scheduled for Nov. 29 (Cumberland), and the girl’s also return to the NBC29/Daily Progress Holiday Tournament (Dec. 27, 28, 29), with Region 3A West rival Turner Ashby awaiting in the first round.
