We are looking forward to this 2019-20 season, we have a brand new coaching staff this season. We have a former assistant coach who is now the head coach of the boys’ basketball team coach Jack Ballard along with varsity assistant coach Michael Larson and two sophomore coaches, coach Christian Heugly and coach Marcus Onofrietti. We also have a whole different lineup this season along with new players from all different grade levels. Providence Hall boys’ basketball is facing a new region this year bringing new challenges and opportunities for reaching state this season. This season is going to be full of excitement and hopefully some awesome victories.
I had the opportunity to talk to the head coach, Coach Ballard, of the boys’ basketball team here at Providence Hall. I asked him how he felt about us playing against a new region this season and what should we expect to see this season. “ We are very excited to play against a new region this season and to have some fresh legs on the court…We expect some good stuff will come out of this year and that we should see a lot of wins with good growth and a long season.” I personally thought that was exciting to hear.
Along with that I was able to talk to some players and ask them some questions they all were very excited to play some new teams and have some more challenges. One of the players said, “I am excited to play against a new region this season and that I think it’s a good change, it will make us better and more prepared for the postseason.” I couldn’t agree more with what he said!
