Boys basketball notches upset of nationally ranked IMG

BASKETBALL Following a win over Woodrow Wilson (DC) on Dec. 17 to begin its run in the City of Palms Classic in Fort Myers, Florida, the Mountain Brook boys basketball team notched an eye-popping 72-67 win over IMG Academy (Florida) on Dec. 20. IMG was ranked No. 2 nationally at the time by USA Today. In the win over IMG, Trendon Watford went off for 38 points and 12 rebounds, with Lior Berman scoring 11 points in support. The Spartans finished their run in the tournament with a 50-29 loss to McEachern (Georgia) on Dec. 21. Berman had eight points and three rebounds, Alex Washington scored eight, and Watford grabbed 11 rebounds. After Christmas, Mountain Brook’s boys team headed up to South Dakota to play in the Hoop City Classic. The Spartans began the tournament with a dominant 94-35 win over Lower Brule (South Dakota) on Dec. 27. Holt Bashinsky led the charge with 18 points and seven rebounds, while Berman followed with 15 points and five boards. Colby Jones added 14 points, and Carter Sobera joined them in double figures with 10 points. The following night, the Spartans fell to DeLaSalle (Minnesota) 63-62 on a 3-point shot at the buzzer. Watford posted a double-double with 18 points and 10 rebounds. Jones scored 17 points, and Berman had 12 points and five boards. Mountain Brook finished up on Dec. 29 with an 89-44 win over Mitchell (South Dakota). Watford had a great game, as he went for 29 points, nine rebounds and six assists. Berman (14 points) and Jones (13 points and five assists) had typical games, and Peyton Haley added 11 points. Mountain Brook took on crosstown rival Hoover on Jan. 3, and the Spartans emerged with a 63-49 victory. Watford led the team with 30 points and 17 rebounds on the night, with Berman adding 17 points. Ahman Ellington led Hoover with 24 points. The boys had their final tune-up before area play the following night, as the Spartans rolled past John Carroll 49-19. Berman led the way with 11 points, while Watford had nine and Washington and Haley each scored eight. The Mountain Brook girls basketball team played in the Chevron Lady Jag Classic at Spain Park the week before Christmas. The Lady Spartans narrowly lost to Hillcrest-Tuscaloosa 33-32 in the opening round on Dec. 20. Mountain Brook battled back from a 28-16 deficit after three quarters and managed to tie the game, but a Midfield free throw with less than three seconds to play proved the difference. Mountain Brook’s Ann Vandevelde sank a half-court shot that could have won the game, but she released it after the buzzer had sounded. For the game, Whitton Bumgarner led the team with 14 points, with Vandevelde adding seven points. The Lady Spartans finished the tournament with back-to-back wins, beginning with a 46-45 triumph on Dec. 21. Emily Henderson led the way with 14 points, and Ellie Dayhuff scored 12. On Dec. 22, Mountain Brook ran past Shades Valley 69-55. Vandevelde posted a team-high 19 points, Henderson added 15, and Dayhuff scored 14. Following Christmas, the Mountain Brook girls traveled to West Palm Beach, Florida, for the Holiday Basketball Classic. The Lady Spartans fell 77-63 to Palm Beach Lakes (Florida) on Dec. 27 to begin their run in the tournament, but rebounded with a 60-56 win over Dr. Krop (Florida) the following day. Henderson had a huge game, pouring in 30 points. Vandevelde scored 11 in support. Mountain Brook wrapped up the tournament on Dec. 29 with a 52-49 win over Assumption (Kentucky). Vandevelde led the team with 17 points, while Ellie Dayhuff and Bumgarner each added 10 points. The girls had their final game before area play on Jan. 4, as they cruised past John Carroll 64-28. Heading into area play, the Mountain Brook boys boast a 17-3 overall record, while the girls are 14-6 and have won three straight. This week, Mountain Brook begins Class 7A, Area 6 play at Spain Park on Tuesday and at Vestavia Hills on Friday.

Watford embracing final high school season

rendon Watford could post 50 points per game if he really wanted to. The Mountain Brook High School senior possesses the skills to score from anywhere on the court, whether by using his improved 3-point shot or overpowering opponents in the paint with his 6-foot-9 frame. He’s put more than a few defenders on posters throughout his career with highlight dunks. Posting gaudy numbers could have helped Watford rise further up recruiting boards. He’s a consensus top 30 prospect in his class nationally, though most rankings have him higher. But Watford isn’t a selfish player, and that’s a big reason the Mountain Brook boys basketball program is working toward a potential third straight Class 7A state championship this winter. “He chooses to be a great player and help his team be successful,” said Spartans head coach Bucky McMillan. Watford said that’s how he was taught to play growing up. The forward won Mr. Basketball, the award given by the Alabama Sports Writers Association to the state’s top player, as a junior. He filled the stat sheet on a nightly basis, registering on average 23.3 points, 12.3 rebounds, 3 assists, 2.2 blocks and 1.7 steals per contest, helping lead the Spartans to a 34-4 overall record. “I try to look out for my teammates as much as I can,” he said. “Even when I was little, I was never the type to take every shot, even though I probably could.” LIKE FAMILY Watford moved to Mountain Brook ahead of his ninth-grade year, after two years attending Irondale Middle School and playing varsity basketball at Shades Valley High. But his relationship with his head coach goes back much further than that. McMillan, a Mountain Brook alumnus, has known the Watford family for many years, dating to McMillan’s time as a player at Birmingham-Southern College in the mid-2000s. During that time, McMillan would come back to the high school to train. Sometimes those training sessions included a young Watford. “I’ve known ‘T’ since he was 5 [years old],” said McMillan, sitting in the old gym at Mountain Brook High School. “In this gym — we didn’t have the other gym yet — when I was playing at Birmingham-Southern, he’d come in here and work out with me.” Since Watford arrived in the program as a freshman, McMillan has seen a great deal of growth in his star player. “The biggest deal is his intensity every play, mentally and physically, has picked up a lot. When he was a ninth-grader, that was his biggest challenge,” McMillan said. Watford knew he wanted to be in a successful high school program that would push him, and Mountain Brook has provided that and more. “I wouldn’t trade it for anything,” Watford said. “The high school community welcomed me with open arms and now they look at me as family. I’ve definitely enjoyed it here.” PROGRAM GUY Mountain Brook has won four state championships in the last six seasons, only missing out in 2015 — when Hoover knocked off the Spartans in the 7A final — and 2016. Two of those were won before Watford, and with the strength of the program in McMillan’s decade-long tenure, it’s not far-fetched to suggest the Spartans will win more after Watford graduates. Watford embraces the idea that he is part of the program at Mountain Brook and not the center of it. “I think what it really does is shows the strength of our program,” McMillan said. “Not only does somebody that’s not going to play basketball in college play the right way, but a guy like him values the program enough to play the right way and not be all about him.” Watford could have just as easily bolted for a prep school for his final year or two of high school, a trend that has seen the state of Alabama lose a number of its top players over the last few years. McMillan pointed out Watford’s love for the people around him as well. He has gone to the local elementary schools to read to students, shown up at a young kid’s birthday party and is attempting to enjoy his final season alongside his teammates. “I’m just trying to have fun,” he said. “I won’t get this time back. I’ll never get to play again with some of these guys. I’ve been playing with Alex Washington [who recently committed to play football at Harvard University] since my freshman year, and it’s all coming to an end with me and him playing together.” DECISION TIME Watford has been pursued by just about every college basketball program in the country, and soon he will choose one to continue his athletic and academic careers. The five-star prospect narrowed his list to four schools in December, with Alabama, Indiana, LSU and Memphis in the running. He said he plans to sign in February or March. “I’m looking for a school where they’ll mature me on and off the court, and obviously a program where I trust the coaches to get me to the next level,” he said. Watford can look to his older brother, Christian, for guidance. He was a high-profile recruit out of high school as well and ended up going to Indiana, where he had a successful four-year career. He is currently playing for the Raptors 905 organization in the G-League. “He’s with me every step of the way,” Watford said of his older brother. He echoed the same sentiment about his parents. McMillan said, “If there was a five-star that this state should be proud of, it’s him.” Watford will attempt to make some history on the way out the door, as well. If the Spartans can take home the top prize, they will become the first team to win three straight state titles in the AHSAA’s largest classification in 85 years. “I just hope that everyone in this state makes it a point to come see him play as much as possible,” McMillan said....

Spartans cross-country teams perform well at state

The Mountain Brook High School cross-country teams completed their seasons at the Class 7A state meet, held Nov. 10 at Oakville Indian Mounds Park. The Spartans girls placed second in 7A, tallying 58 points to finish behind Auburn (25) and ahead of third-place Huntsville (135). The boys came home third with 104 points, behind Huntsville (52) and Vestavia Hills (88). For the girls, Reagan Riley capped off a tremendous eighth-grade season, as she finished second with a time of 18 minutes, 16.88 seconds. Anna Balzli finished sixth, crossing the line in 18:56.97. Sabina Ortiz came home 15th (19:18) and Alex Pitts finished 17th (19:23). Other runners for the girls were Elizabeth Robertson (22nd, 19:37), Tessa Allen (29th, 19:55), Cate Jones (44th, 20:26), Catherine Sims (48th, 20:29) and Cameron Hudson (53rd, 20:33). Hunter Harwell gave the Spartans a pair of second-place finishers, as he put together a race time of 15:25.27 in the 5K. Joseph Pitard finished ninth in 15:57.91. Parker Balzli was 19th with a time of 16:21.23. Other runners for the boys were Gram Denning (33rd, 16:32), Henry Hartley (50th, 16:58), Jack Bell (72nd, 17:21), Tate Record (84th, 17:31), Lawton Miller (86th, 17:36), Eric Alexander (114th, 18:00) and Beck Corley (119th, 18:08). Mountain Brook qualified for the state meet with a stellar showing at the Section 3 meet the week prior. The Spartans girls won, while the boysplaced second....

Spartans win 9 games in unlikely season

Mountain Brook High School head football coach Chris Yeager said multiple times he never saw it coming. Heading into the 2018 season, the Spartans were replacing a three-year starter at quarterback in Hamp Sisson, who’s now at Furman University. His knowledge and comfort within the offense couldn’t be replaced overnight. Neither could the chemistry of the offensive line, which returned just one starter from the season prior. Mountain Brook also had a new defensive coordinator in Robert Evans, who came over from Hoover in the offseason. But somehow, it all came together rather quickly. The Spartans, with sophomore starting quarterback Strother Gibbs and a rebuilt offensive line, got off to a blistering 7-0 start. They picked up rushing yards by the truckload, and the defense pitched three shutouts in those first seven victories. “This is one of the most unlikely offensive lines I’ve ever coached, and week after week, I’m amazed at what they’re doing. I really thought that was going to be our weak link, but they keep proving me wrong,” Yeager said following a win over Oak Mountain on Oct. 4. Following a thrilling 20-17 win on Oct. 12 over Hewitt-Trussville — one of just two instances all season that the Huskies’ offense was held to less than 30 points — to get that seventh straight win, Yeager lauded his team’s ability to come together at such a quick rate. “They believed in this system, and they believed in one another,” he said. “They have so far exceeded my expectations. They exceeded all of our expectations — talk about an unlikely motley crew. They love the game and they love one another.” The two weeks that followed were not as pleasant, as the Spartans fell by identical 31-7 score lines to Class 7A semifinalists Thompson and Hoover, but Mountain Brook rebounded to close the regular season with an 8-2 record after a 38-14 win over Gardendale. In the first round of the 7A playoffs, what was supposed to be a defensive struggle turned into a 31-0 rout of Austin. The Mountain Brook defense picked off four passes that evening, including a pick-six by Colton Yeager. The win was the 101st win at Mountain Brook for Chris Yeager, who surpassed Joey Jones to become the winningest coach in program history. He came to Mountain Brook 20 years ago as Jones’ offensive coordinator and has been the head coach for the past 13 years. In 13 seasons, Chris Yeager has compiled a 101-51 record and now has 126 career wins if previous stops at West Blocton (1991-92) and Walker (1993-94) are included. “I’m the most blessed football coach, I can promise you that,” he said. “I hope one day when I hang up my whistle and go to the farm, that some young buck comes in behind me and just shatters this thing.” The season ended in the second round, as the Spartans fell to Hoover 42-17 and completed the year with a 9-3 record. It was the first nine-win season for Mountain Brook since 2012 and the sixth in Chris Yeager’s tenure. “That’s what makes high school coaching fun, because it hurts when it’s over,” he said....
