Keys to the season: We have 11 returning players that contributed to our varsity season last year. The 14 returning players and 2 incoming freshman are ready to get the season started, once we get the approval to start the season. Our focus at the start of the season will be to develop team chemistry and establish our rotation pattern. We need to get into the gym and improve our conditioning and get back to playing basketball.
Things your team was doing during the COVID-19 pause of winter sports: We haven’t done anything remotely as a team during this pause. The players are lifting and working on their conditioning individually to prepare for the season.
