Notice the new color on Muir’s road uniforms? Out with the navy blue and in with the royal blue. For the Muir faithful who go back in the day, this color is nothing new. I’ll let Muir boys basketball coach Gamal Smalley explain.
“(Muir girls basketball coach) Gary Johnson and myself were the starting back court in the 70’s and the color blue that we wore was royal blue,” Smalley said. “We went back to royal blue because we thought it would be cool. The gym is royal blue and the bleachers are royal blue. Some where in time someone changed it to navy blue, but every year Muir has won a CIF championship has been in royal blue, so we had to take it back to when Muir was successful.”
The Muir girls team also will wear royal blue unis.
So now you know.
Muir’s 8-0 start is its best start in over two decades. The Mustangs are one of two remaining undefeated teams among the 44 in CIF-SS Division 4AA. Crespi is the other undefeated team. Muir is No. 8 in what many consider Division 4AA as the super division.
