As the fall season wraps up, many athletes and coaches are excited for their winter tryouts and seasons. Tryouts are being held all throughout the school during the end of October to the middle of November.

The freshman, junior varsity, and varsity boys basketball team are holding tryouts Nov. 14 and Nov. 16, with Nov. 17 and Nov. 18 being an extra tryout days if need be.

With a new sport season, comes new coaches for a few teams.

“I’m excited,” teacher intern John Carlon said. “I feel like we can have a good season.” Carlon has filled the boys freshmen basketball coaching vacancy.

The upcoming wrestling season will officially begin on Nov.14. If anyone was interested in joining the wrestling team and wasn’t able to show up for the meetings, just show up to the first practice on Nov.14. The wrestling team doesn’t cut anyone, although there is much competition within the team.

With sideline cheer out of the way, the competitive cheer team starts the season off with an informational meeting on Nov. 3. The competitive cheer team starts tryouts on Nov 7. After winning the MAC White last year, they’re looking for another strong season.

The bowling team begin their trouts on Nov. 14 and Nov. 15 at Shelby Lanes. Bowling shoes can be rented, if needed. There is no cost for games bowled throughout the season.

The freshmen, junior varsity, and varsity girls basketball team are holding tryouts on Nov. 7 and Nov. 9. The girls basketball are looking forward to a strong season.

The boys hockey team had tryouts on Oct. 25. The boys hockey team recently named a new head coach by the name of Bob Clouston. Clouston has played Division 1 hockey in the past.

“I’m excited we got a new coach,” sophomore Jimmy Acquisto said. “I’ve been working out every day to do better than last year.”

As everyone is anxious and excited about the upcoming season, so is athletic director Jim Vigus.

“I feel like boys basketball and hockey will be young and successful, while girls basketball will be experienced,” Vigus said. “Competition Cheer will be strong after winning the MAC White last year, while wresting will be young and do good.”
