Chapin Boys Varsity Basketball Update

The Chapin High School varsity boys basketball team has played 18 regular season games, racking up only six wins. In region play the Eagles have only won one game out of five.

The boys will definitely need a spark going into postseason play. “Well done is better than well said” said junior, Cooper Woodham, when asked what coach John Goodale would be telling the team heading to the playoffs. Playing a tough region schedule for the remainder of the season, the team will need to keep this message in mind.

On the court, the struggling Eagles must “communicate more on the court and play better as a team” according to Jasper Aiken, starting guard, when asked how the team can improve for the remainder of the season.

If the Eagles are to succeed the rest of the season and postseason, they will need to rely on a lot of upperclassmen leadership. “This year, our team is built to be able to make the playoffs as there are a bunch of seniors leading the way, also getting a lot of help from the juniors,” said senior, Mario Macaluso. With a ton of experience on the court and bench for the team, they will need to find ways to outscore and work their opponents.

Although Chapin has not played that well this season, the most important games are in front of them, and they must keep the “1 and 0” mindset that the team is built around.
