The Carbon High School basketball team is looking forward to an exciting, successful 2011-2012 campaign.
Head Coach Jeff Cisneros will be taking the reigns full-time for the first time in his high school coaching career, and all the returning and new players are stoked to see how the season plays out.
вЂњI think our season will be very successful this year,вЂќ said Christopher White.
Tryouts were completed Nov. 8, and the team has been working hard at practice to get ready for the season opener Dec. 1 in Grand Junction.
вЂњI think we are going to be really tough this season with all of our returning seniors,вЂќ Principal Bruce Bean said. вЂњItвЂ™s sure to be a great and exciting season.вЂќ
Students and supporters hope school spirit fills the stands with screams and chants like it did during football season.
вЂњI will definitely be going to most of the home games [because] itвЂ™s such a fun sport to watch and get into,вЂќ said student Kenzie Kelley. вЂњI wouldnвЂ™t miss it. School spirit is definitely going to be just as wild as it has been. Our school supports our players with everything.вЂќ
