B-CC Basketball has High Hopes for the New Season

Andrew Doerr

The highly anticipated B-CC basketball season tipped off on December 6, as the Barons played at home against Sherwood High School. Although they lost, the Barons are coming off a remarkable season as they made a run in the playoffs, but unfortunately got eliminated by their rivals, Churchill.
This year’s team, however, is looking to build off a strong year and improve in the playoffs. They have many challenging teams in their way, including Churchill, Whitman, and Walter Johnson, but none may be more difficult than an internal problem they face; last year B-CC had several outstanding senior players who are no longer here to help the team. This year’s varsity team only has four returning players, while the rest were on JV last year or transferred over. However, this year’s team feels they can overcome the lack of experience they have due to their talent and constant hard-work.
Senior wing Logan Davis commented, “Our school is special in terms of basketball, we are known across the county for having a wild crowd, it’s something that definitely helps us win and keeps our energy up in the game, so we need the students to keep bringing that same Baron spirit throughout the games.”
The team needs as much support as they can get, and there are many great games on the schedule. The players feed off the crowd’s energy, so the best way to support the Barons is to show up and cheer.
