Boys Basketball Team Comes Out with a Strong Start to their Season

As the boys’ Basketball season takes off this year’s team shows real promise. The team’s current record is 2-1 and their past three games have been neck and neck with their opponents.

Senior Captain Jack Quinn is very excited about the boys basketball season and what is to come for the team. The team graduated five seniors last year, so many would say this is a rebuilding year, but that is far from the truth. While they graduated great players last year Quinn says he has no doubt the team can be just as successful as they were last season. He said that whether or not they are a captain all of the seniors are extremely encouraging to the new players on the team and he can see everyone stepping up to fill the roles of the seniors that graduated.

Quinn is most excited about how the team works together and how everyone has a positive attitude.  They have had to call some players to step up this year including  freshmen Chase Konieczny and Brashaun Woods along with sophomore Jayce Lee. Everyone seems to know their roles and knows how to grow together to be the best team we can possibly be, and he is excited to see what the future holds for their season.

Over the summer the boys played in different leagues and they have been preparing for this season for months. So when the first game came around they did not have to get used to playing with each other because they were already extremely comfortable with each other on the court, and playing together as a team came easy. Everything was just natural and they clicked right away. 

Quinn says that the team has always felt like a family all 3 years he has been a member, and this year is no different he feels the family environment just as he always has. Being a senior not only gives him more responsibilities to lead the team, but it also makes every game extremely emotional, and exciting. The seniors want to have fun with the guys, make memories they will remember forever, and get some redemption from last year’s loss in a semi-state. The team looks to build on the success of defeating Adams in the NIC opener.
