The Demonettes have had almost every coach you could throw at them. Every year those coaches would quit on them. But will Coach Morris change that up this year?

Coach Nate Morris, who joined the faculty at Santa Fe High this year, has been coaching for 25 years. He said he believes in hard work, positivity, and discipline. He needs his starters to know how to pick up a man-to-man defense, be well conditioned so they can run up and down the court full speed into a transition offense, be smart with the ball, and understand the plays.

Positivity is key when the team plays. “The girls are only human, so as coaches we have to understand that they will make mistakes,” Coach Morris said. “I’m not the type of coach to yell at the kids.” Instead, he tries to explain to them that they should try to do better next time and to not get upset because they could get technical fouls for bad attitude.

Basketball is a game of runs. “The team just needs to keep scoring points, and make their baskets,” Brianna Olivas said.

As of Jan 8, the team’s overall record was 8 losses and 5 wins.
