conditioning started on the fifth. After two weeks of hard work and getting into the season, the team knows where they want to be by the end of it.

This season is the first year for the seven freshmen playing at the high school level. While the transition from a junior high sport to a high school sport can be daunting, Ethan Smith ’22 is looking at the bright side.

“I’m hoping to gain more skills that will make me a better basketball player,” Smith said.

For the four sophomores and four juniors, this season they’re working on transferring the skills they’ve learned on the junior varsity court to the varsity court.

“I’m looking forward to scoring and winning as a team this season,” Dylan Starr ’21 said. “Our biggest obstacle is being mentally prepared.”

The three seniors on the team have high hopes for the season and intend on leaving it all on the court.

“My biggest goal is to help make the team be the best we can be. As a team I want us to continue to grow and get better throughout the year,” Isaac Robertson ’19 said. “We have guys who want to be competitive and do things the right way, so I’m really looking forward to the season.”
