As winter approaches, it is only right to start thinking about Lions Basketball. Despite losing some of last year’s valuable players, the team has high expectations for this season and hopes to compete for a league championship.
This year the team returns six varsity players, three of which are seniors. Hopefully, that will serve them well and carry them deep into their season. Although the Lions lost their top two scorers from last year, Max Wagner (21 PPG) and Spencer Tinkel (14 PPG), they are not worried because the returning seniors have enough talent to shoulder the load. Senior Captain Mayes Lane is extremely excited about the upcoming season as well as the brand new mixtape that will debut in the Lion’s home opener: “Our mixtape is gonna be sick, and the fans are gonna be awesome, so we are probably gonna win a lot of games. That along with a high level of commitment will lead this team to infinity and beyond!” said Lane.
The Lions are coming off of a somewhat disappointing 2014-15 season in which they went 12-10, but with a new offense and revamped starting lineup a championship season is very possible for this years team. Because they missed out on the District playoffs by one game last year, they now know what they must do to be successful; the odds are in their favor. Considering the experience this roster has, plus the pure talent they possess at every position, they should be able to compete for a district title.
The team will begin the season against Central Bucks East in the annual Dick Rabberman Tip off Tournament at Council Rock South.
