Top Mt. Hood girls basketball games to watch for in '21-22 season
The 2021/22 Mt. Hood Conference girls basketball is shaping up to be another competitive season. Here are some league games fans should be on the lookout for in the coming season.
Barlow High School vs. Clackamas High School
At Clackamas High School, Wednesday, Feb. 2. The Bruins put together a great season last year only losing twice and are on pace to have another successful season this year. The only thing in the way of perfection would be Clackamas. This late season match should have major playoff implications and show off two high powered teams.
Sandy High School vs. David Douglas High School
At Sandy High School, Monday, Feb. 7. Sandy has been a middle of the road team for the past three-years, but with a much more mature group the Pioneers are geared to change that narrative. They will try to do that as they welcome a strong David Dougals team. The Scots also come to the season with a new coach in Heather Marshall.
Gresham High School vs. Reynolds High School
At Reynolds High School, Wednesday, Jan. 19. The Gophers are expected to be a fun team to watch as they bring position-less basketball to Mt. Hood Conference. The focus for the girls from Gresham is on attitude, hustle and teamwork. Head coach Michael Leland said their style may not win a ton of games, but expects the program to make steps in building up interest and talent.
Sandy High School vs. Barlow High School
At Barlow High School, Wednesday, Jan. 19. Last year, the Pioneers boasted the lowest amount of points allowed by any team in the conference, while the Bruins had an electric offense that led all of 6A leagues with 1088. The question is if Sandy's defense can hold on to the high scoring Barlow team.
