This year’s boys’ basketball team is working hard to improve and adjust to new Covid-19 guidelines.

“There are several tracking and contact tracing things that we do daily to ensure that we can trace who was in contact with who and for how long to make sure that we limit the amount of contact that our players and staff could have with a potential person who is infected,” said head coach Robert Wonnell. 

Covid has also affected the amount of fans that are allowed to be in the stands. Each player and manager gets a maximum number of two guests every game. This season has definitely tested players mentally and physically. 

My goals are for us to figure out what is really important about being a part of a team and striving for a common goal together,” Wonnell said.

Senior RJ Oglesby’s personal goals for the season are “to not foul out and keep my hands up on defense.” For teammate Bobby Wonnell, he hopes to encourage his teammates and the Kats’ fans. 

“Go Kats! We will be on a winning streak soon. Very soon.”

The boys’ basketball team will continue to work hard and improve their skills through the season. The team takes on conference foe Lafayette Jeff on the road tonight. They are back home at Memorial Gym against Lewis Cass tomorrow night. With Howard County moving back to orange status, 25% capacity is allowed in the gym.
