“We have had much success and feel that the basketball program has benefitted from a strong JV team year after year” said Sanders.
“We’ve been working as hard as possible to be the best team we can be,” said sophomore Bryson Baker.
“I want to push my teammates,” said Baker. He feels as though the county will be competitive this year, believing that Centennial is up for the challenge. “We want to be great, and go undefeated.”
Freshman Cameron Grable feels as though the JV team will be very successful this year.
“We have a deep team with a good combination of size, athleticism, and skill,” said Grable. “With a mixture of talent and excellent coaching, we won’t be surprised with an undefeated season.”
Baker holds high hopes as a captain for the Boys’ JV basketball team as he believes the JV team is great and can potentially have an undefeated season.
