The varsity boys' basketball team began their season with a desire to be unstoppable. They are currently ranked as the top team in their section with a record of 9-3.

The Cavaliers are powerful this year after returning five starters from the previous year. Their starting line-up consists of four seniors Joey Tutchstone, Corey Smith, Mike Rairigh, a shuffle between Kenny Johnson and Curt Keibler and Junior Gregory Hutcherson. Greg commented, " I think that we are going to be very successful and could clinch the entire WPIAL this season." He is one of the many players that are confident of their success this year.

With a passion for basketball the team has enlightened us with many exciting games that have left the fans in awe. The players showed their desire and athleticism even after losing by two in a heartbreaking overtime game to Hempfield. They also rocked the gymnasium with their amazing effort in the game against George Junior Republic.

The players have high aspirations to take their game and the team to the next level. They stepped up the competition this year by entering the very prestigious Blackhawk Tournament. The Cavs finished the tournament 3rd out of the 8 invited teams. They were 2-1 with a disappointing loss to New Castle who is currently ranked 2nd in the WPIAL. Joey amazed the fans in this tournament with a surreal performance that helped him wrap up his All Tournament Team award. Best of luck with the rest of the season!
