Heading into last game–BHS players setting records

In this week’s win over Hillcrest, senior Jaimeson Meyer recorded over 1,000 points in her basketball career. Third in BHS scoring behind the legendary Hutson (1322 points) and Dani Barton (1030).

Senior Lilly Cheatham has found a sincere love for the deep three! Lilly has become the ALL TIME Brighton Girls Basketball Program leader in career 3 pointers.

All these numbers will be posted once the season has finished. We are so proud of these two outstanding players.

Parent meeting Nov 25 5 PM in the aux gym.



Due to the unprecedented times of COVID-19 and the effect it is having on our schools and athletic programs, we are canceling our Bantam tryouts for this year. We were hoping that we could continue with tryouts and be back to some semblance of normalcy; however, things have not gone as smooth as we were hoping. We are truly sorry for this.  The uncertainty of the current environment makes it impossible to continue our bantam program as normal for this upcoming year.

The Bantam League still may continue, but we are only unable to manage the teams this year. Parents, we are leaving it up to you to assemble and manage the teams. If you would like to assemble a team, we can help with posting your necessary information on our site and through our email list.

Please contact Coach Doug Nielsen with any questions. Email at coach@brightongirlsbasketball.com

Unfortunately, we will not be able to provide any gym space this year.

Sorry again for this unexpected turn of events.
