Two Godley Ladycats, HC achieve milestones over holidays

Jan. 10—The Godley High School girls basketball program saw three of its own achieve greatness on the hardwood over the holidays. Head coach Mark Chaveaux, who has held his post since 1999, earned his 600th career win while star senior Logan Reed reached 1,500 career points and junior Bree Hubbard notched 1,000 career points.

"Both Bree and Logan used to take home most of the competition awards at our camp when they were young kids, and to see what they are accomplishing now on the varsity level makes me very proud to be their coach, as I am with all of our players," Chaveaux said.

Chaveaux, who also serves as the district's girls athletic director, got his 600th win on Friday, Dec. 29, 2023, when the Ladycats defeated Waco Robinson 50-33 during tournament action at Canyon High School.

"First off, with any team sport milestone, no one gets there without a lot of help," Chaveaux said. "For me, it's being fortunate enough to have been able to coach a lot of teams with talented, coachable players. Players that have typically played a lot of basketball growing up and have been pushed to be the best they can be by their families. I've also been extremely fortunate to have had an incredible amount of help from our assistant coaches, including our junior high coaches. Also, our youth basketball program is excellent and a bunch of our high school players either coach or ref those games."

Reed reached her milestone after scoring 27 points in a 65-39 win over Kennedale on Tuesday, Jan. 2, while Hubbard eclipsed 1,000 points in Godley's 65-52 victory over Alvarado on Friday. Chaveaux, who spoke highly of his honored players' toughness, work ethic and coachability, knows the importance of the rest of the players on the team's roles in helping the two stars achieve their respective milestones.

"For Bree and Logan, I think they would tell you the same thing. Without their teammates, it would be impossible for them to have achieved 1,000 and 1,500 points, respectively," Chaveaux said. "The players on our team understand their roles and the value of everyone else's role. Bree and Logan are typically our leading scorers, but without others getting them the ball, helping them get open or even just being difficult for them to go against in practice, they wouldn't have the success that they've had to this point."

The Ladycats, who most recently defeated Waxahachie Life 72-37, will take the court again at 5:45 p.m. Friday at home against Ferris.
