The Nevada Blue Jays made an impressive showing on the hardwood in Northwest Arkansas this summer to finish unbeaten during several key battles in team camp basketball competition.
The Blue Jays showcased their skills to top some of the quality basketball programs to produce wins representing part of south Arkansas.
Head coach Bobby Mullins was very impressed by the play and competitive efforts the Blue Jays brought against their opponents. Although this was summer hoops, Mullins aim for his team to utilize these types of offseason competitions and workouts to stay ready for the upcoming season.
The Blue Jays defeated Caddo Hills, Prairie Grove, Omaha, The New School, Melbourne and Charleston during the senior high boys camp in Fayetteville.
The Jr. Blue Jays also competed and faced teams St. Joes of Conway and Farmington, but came up short of wins.
Mullins anticipates to have another exciting year of hoops for 2018-19 basketball season with one of his most talented sophomore groups gracing their skills to join the upperclassmen on the senior high  team to bring a unique unit of chemistry.
Last season, both of Mullins' junior and senior high teams won district tourney titles to continue to be one of the major threats in Class 1A. The Blue Jays had a successful year of hoops last season to finish 25-9 overall, winning the conference and district and regional tourney titles to earn a No. 1 seed in the Class 1A state boys tournament. Mullins felt they Blue Jays senior high team exceeded expectations as being young but talented. As far as his junior high team last season, they produced a sensational year to go undefeated at 22-0 overall and winning tournaments hosted in Nashville, Genoa Central and capturing the district tourney championship.
Mullins will expect several key players from last season with the addition of his talented junior high players from last year to make next year's Blue Jays team to journey back to Spa City in March 2019 to compete in the Class 1A state finals in Hot Springs since 2008.
