The boys’ varsity basketball team that broke the school record for most single-season victories last season lost nine seniors to graduation following that successful campaign. This loss of nearly the entire varsity team could prove to be a challenge during the upcoming season, when the Wildcats will be making their debut in the Cape Coast Conference.

“We moved into a new conference this year with big name teams like Melbourne High School,” senior Tony Hedrick said. “Evan Lanier definitely left a big hole in our team. Almost of our plays ran around him. Losing Keegan Schauman is also unfortunate because he was one of our best offensive weapons.”

According to Hedrick, the young varsity team will need to perform well in the face of adversity if the Wildcats want to replicate the success they had during last year’s season.

“I believe all returning players will step up this year,” he said. “I think we will have a good season, though it might be challenging.”

The team will play its first preseason game Nov. 20.
