Not being affiliated with the TSSAA doesn’t seem to be slowing down the Boyd Christian High School basketball teams.The Broncos and Lady Broncos have their largest amount of games in school history as the teams will navigate a 31-game schedule in the Middle Tennessee Athletic Conference.Gone are the long-standing rivalries with Huntland, Cascade and Forrest in District 9-A. Boyd has replaced its former foes with teams from the MTAC, including Franklin Classical, Benton Hall, Providence Christian, Lancaster Christian and the Middle Tennessee Heat.The move was made to put the Broncos and Lady Broncos in direct competition with schools with similar student body sizes as Boyd.While Boyd will continue with out-of-conference series against Van Buren County, Watertown and Middle Tennesse Christian School, most of the opponents this season will be completely new.Donna Newby, who begins her first season next Tuesday as Lady Broncos coach, thinks MTAC presents Boyd with a chance for a resurgence in the basketball programs.“I’m looking forward to the start of the season, getting out there and competing after all the work we’ve been putting in,” said Newby. “The new conference provides new faces for us and new opportunities for our team.”The Lady Broncos will take the court this season trying to erase the memories of a winless campaign last year. Five players return from last year’s team, including three who started.Senior Kaci Lupo headlines the returning players for the Lady Broncos.
