As boys’ basketball begins a new season, the players anticipate a good year for both the varsity and j.v. teams.

“I feel very strong about how far we can go, because we’ve been putting hard work in, and our dedication is growing, and we are really growing as a team,” junior guard Sam Victor said.

The varsity team will be able to feel the effects of that hard work at their first game on November 13th.

Likewise, the j.v. team’s prospects look hopeful.

“I think we’re going to have a good season this year,” sophomore Jonathan Gonzalez said.  “We have good talent on the team this year.”

The basketball players’ optimistic outlook stems from their vigorous daily practices, which start at 7 a.m. every morning and going into first period. They are confident that their strenuous practices are preparing them for the intensity of their competition this season. Both j.v. and varsity predict a promising season in boys’ basketball.
