Mustang basketball is officially underway as Prosser opened up their season against the Granger Spartans. The Mustangs got off to a quick start as Chase Courtney found a lane to the basket and scored the opening points. After the first basket, Granger went on a run to give themselves a quick lead but Prosser answers back with a run of their own. After both teams came out with a quick start, the first quarter came to an end by the score of 13 to 13.
Prosser who is one of the CWAC favorites to win the league got off to a good 2-0 start over the weekend. Prosser opened their season against Granger in what was a nail-biter. The Spartans got off to a quick start as they hit three 3-pointers in the opening minutes. After giving up some points early in the game, Prosser's defense woke up and started forcing many turnovers as the Spartans struggled to score. Prosser also has its fair share of struggles on offense which included missed free throws and turnovers.
Prosser wrestling has hit a few bumps on the road the past couple years. The Mustangs finished at the bottom of the CWAC standings last year with a 0-9 record. Prosser has faced the problem of not having enough wrestlers every year meaning they would have to forfeit different weight classes at every match. The Mustangs roster currently sits at 18 wrestlers for the boys and 9 wrestlers for the girls according to CWAC Athletics this year.
