The varsity basketball team played the toughest and hardest schools in the district this season.

“I am most proud of the way the kids have responded to adversity and we’re really young team, but they’re not scared at all and they’d go after you” said Eric Davis, the varsity basketball coach.

This team said they didn’t want to let their inexperience get in their way of succeeding on the court, even though they’re mostly freshmen.

“[The] hardest part is being small and the responsibility is we gotta play through it, we can’t have any excuses,” says Richard Anderson, a freshman.

Though the team has players coming from about nine different schools, their connection with each other grows stronger game after game.

“I’m really pleased that they’re able to bond together and become a Knight, and so Knights are first right now, so we’re excited about that,” said Coach Davis.

Apart from practices and games, the team also gets together to read to the kids at Ogle Elementary and have team dinners.

“We like have discussions about personal things and that brings us closer together,” replied Anderson, when asked about how the players bonds off-court.

The team hopes to grow closer together and exceed all challenges that they faced this year on the basketball court.
