Seeing winning scores regularly posted for the Marshall High boys varsity basketball team on the school’s athletic Twitter site is a familiar sight so far this season.
Marshall is off to a 7-1 start, including the team’s most recent victory over the visiting Westfield Bulldogs, the score that was posted on the site soon after the win and shown with this blog.
Marshall struggled the last two seasons, winning a total of just 11 games under new coach Jerry Lin. This is Lin’s third season in charge, so the 2021-22 squad is now fully his team, with the players now knowing his system and wants very well.
Marshall opened this season with a loss, but now has won seven in a row, including notable wins over Westfield, Wakefield and Oakton.
Going forward, Lin and his team are hoping for many more winning Twitter posts this season.
We’ll see what happens.
