The nationally ranked Moberly Greyhounds will open their regular season by hosting Faith Prep from West Memphis, Arkansas Wednesday at 7:00 pm at the Fitzsimmons-John Arena.
The Greyhounds are coming off a 27-5 season in which they captured the MCCAC Conference Title, Region 16 regular season championship, Highland Tourney Title and Region 16 runner up. Returning starters include Dallas Morgan, Tyree White (out with stress fracture) and red-shirt freshman Will Rucker to go with 11 new players.
“I know our players are ready and anxious to get the season started,” said Coach Patrick Smith, “We’ve had a good preseason, minus a couple of players to begin the season but that’s unfortunately part of the game. We’ve had success in our scrimmages but now it’s the real thing with the actual games coming fast and furious. We wanted to get to the opening of the season feeling like we are where we need to be at this time, but now it’s time to really anchor down and seek daily improvement and progression. With three games in first four days of the season, what a great time for our players and fans.”
Wednesday’s game vs. Faith Prep will be sponsored by R.G. Mongler Real Estate, Bob and Treva Mongler. The Greyhounds will resume play November 3 and 4th in the Orscheln Industries Classic vs. Planet Academy and Arkansas Baptist College.
