The excitement of the annual college basketball tournament, March Madness, is here with the beginning of high school basketball.  With preparation for the upcoming season, the boys’ varsity basketball program has one goal: a state championship. Junior Karson Cater says how it’s not going to be as easy this year.

“To start, we have less seniors this year,” Cater said. “So there’s less experience with only five returning varsity players.”

Offensively, they are bringing back players like senior point guard Tanner Radke, senior shooting guard Dom Ortiz and senior power forward Connor Brack. The T-Wolves might not have the height as they did last year, with the loss of center Keaton Hervey and power forward Luke Ferony, but now they will have more opportunities of scoring and have a shutdown defense all year long.

Last year, the team made it to the playoffs only to be beaten by the Brennan Bears on a buzzer beater to send the T-Wolves home. After suffering that loss, the team has been preparing different than ever before.

“I think it’s going to be a great season,” Cater said. “I cant wait for the new season to start and build a legacy here.”

The team’s first game is against Stony Point on Nov. 11 to start their non-district schedule, with district games beginning early December. Click here for the schedule.
