COACHES' CORNER

2000

Brandon Fain started the Shooters program. Coach Fain will be graduating from Morehead State University next fall with a degree in Physical Education as well as Electronic Media. Coach Fain will be entering this season with 8 years of coaching experience and his 3rd season as an AAU representative. Coach Fain's overall coaching record stands at 123-60.  Coach Fain's assistant coach for the upcoming season will be Randy Wallace.  Coach Wallace has coached girls and boys middle school basketball for the past 15 years.  With Coach Wallace’s help we hope to add an 11 and under team this season.

The Morehead Shooters AAU program began in the fall of 1997.  The program had two main goals that year. The first was for the girls of our community to have an extended opportunity to play basketball when otherwise they would not have had any choice but to set the ball down and wait for a full year to play again. The second was for the players to have an opportunity to play against the highest level of competition available both statewide and nationally. We based our success on 6 different criteria that we would stand by through thick and thin. These are commitment, concentration, dedication, determination, motivation and the most important: HAVING FUN!!!

Our first two seasons of play have shown us the highs and lows of playing very competitive basketball. With much success in our first year, compiling a record of 40-9, 5 championships and a 5th place finish at the State Tournament, things were looking brighter and brighter for the future of the Shooters. Our second season however, showed us just how hard it is to compete on the National level and have a repeat performance of the previous year. The team finished our second campaign at 26-19. The record doesn't stand out in most people's minds but we had some very memorable moments during the course of the year by earning the Silver Medal at the Bluegrass State Games, a 3rd place finish at the Whirlwind Invitational, held in Richmond, IN and a memorable 3rd place finish at the 1st Annual Spring Shoot-Out where the Shooters overcame a halftime deficit to beat a very good Lexington Diamonds team in double overtime.

The upcoming season looks promising as the girls will be heading out on a mission this year to prove that the first season and the success from the second go around wasn't a fluke! These girls have Nationals on their minds and are ready to set their sites on reaching their goal!

The Morehead Shooters overall record from 1997-1999 is 66-28, 2000-???

 The Best has Yet to Come!!!!!!!
