It’s here. After what feels like forever, the basketball season has made a comeback; the boy’s varsity basketball team is up and running since the COVID-19 outbreak.
Although covid-19 caused a lot of worries for the future of the later sports seasons, Iysis Arriola, a guard for the Bucks, is ready to get back on the court.
“What I see for us this season is to compete to the best of our ability,” said Arriola. “After having a whole basketball season taken away from last year and not being able to compete we have never been more prepared to get back on the court. After having a couple of practices already I see us competing extremely well and aggressively especially.”
The new season comes with a lot of other new things, such as players, coaches, and experience. For the varsity team of 12, this is all of their first time being on varsity.
Coach Chad Peters feels excited and can’t wait to see how the season will unfold. “We are all really excited to be having a season,” said Peters. “Our team this year is going to work really hard and have a lot of fun. Everyone on the team has no varsity experience, so it will be a slow gradual progression throughout the season. I am very excited about this team and can’t wait to see how we finish in late February.”
