The Mosley Lady Dolphins are riding a 12 game win streak

LYNN HAVEN, Fla (WJHG/WECP) - "We just look at measuring ourselves against the top programs in the state," Jon Mason, Mosley girls basketball coach said.

The Lady Dolphins are taking names and giving 'L''s on the hardwood this season.

"Just getting better daily at the system that we run and the style of play," Mason said. "They just get more experience throughout the summer and the spring."

"We've just been sticking together, listening to everything our coach tells us to do," Ja'Tayvia Holley, Mosley senior basketball player said. "You know just stand as a team mostly."

Mosley knocked off Rocky Bayou Tuesday night to make it 12 wins in a row improving to 14-2 on the season.

"It's just been about building chemistry is the main thing," Mason said. "We played a lot of games before Christmas, which I think helped us kind of develop that chemistry and learn how each one of them plays together."

A team whose roster is filled with talented athletes who share the same hunger as their head coach.

"Winning, it means everything," Holley said. "I know coach Mason. He's always like I hate losing. He hates losing, I hate losing, like it's a must we take the win every game."

"I do something wrong, and he just gives me that look like come on Dai Dai you know you can do better," Ladaiiza Taylor, Mosley junior basketball player said. "And I'm just like alright Dai Dai, I know I can get that rebound over somebody that's 5'3 and I'm 5'10. So I know I should do better. Especially when I get that look."

Mason's currently in his fifth season with the 'fins and has since built an 85-34 record.

"Winning is a huge part of what I do and just building that comradery with the team," Mason said.

Mason not only wants to build a legacy at Mosley for winning records.

"Teaching life lessons, building comradery with the kids, because amateur athletics teaches you life skills," Mason said. "So I just look through every experience that we go through that there's either a win or a lesson learned."

Coach Mason and his Dolphins are back at it, gunning for a 13th straight win Thursday night when they play Rutherford at the Spiva Ram House at 6.
