As our fall sports begin to come to an end, the winter and spring sports are beginning to prepare for the season. Boys’ Basketball started tryouts on Tuesday and returning members of both the boys and girls’ teams have already been practicing. As anticipation for basketball builds among fans, excitement for the season is growing exponentially. The first basketball game is on November 17 at Hardin County. The boys are returning every starter from last year, and the girls have a young core with seniors Mia Hurst and Tori Trice to provide leadership. Hurst looks to improve on her 2019 campaign.
“This season will be different from any other year, but we are thankful we are getting the chance to play! We have been working hard this year and we expect big things as a team. We have a young team this year, so I expect that our best basketball will come in the second half of season. I would like to see us in the top two of the district. With it being my senior year, my goal is to get the younger players to step into big roles and be comfortable on the court. This year we are missing a big part of our team, Roselyn Roberts. After our season ended last year, she told me ‘Senior year is our year!’ So this year, for me, is about making Roselyn proud. We are excited and looking forward to a great season!”
Tori Trice looks to help take the team to higher places than last year.
“I expect us just to work hard this year. We lost many good players but we still have a lot of potential on the team. We need to learn this year to use every player on the court and take it one game at a time.”
The Chester County Basketball teams are set for great seasons. This season looks to be one of the best CC Basketball has had in a long time.
