Bearcat basketball teams ready to go hard

As the football season come to a close, the squeaking of shoes can be heard from the gyms as the basketball season comes underway. The boy’s varsity hopes to improve from last year’s record of 6-16. The team will be losing six of their seniors as they go off into college. The seniors all have the same dream of winning the division and possibly taking it all home in the CCS championships.
The season will be packed with games. During the pre-season, the boys have three tournaments and none of their games are at home until the regular season. No team wants to have an injury plague them and weaken their team. Unfortunately injury is part of all basketball players’ life.
Of those seniors, is key returner, starting power forward Eduardo Trujillo had a comment on his hopes of his final basketball season at Mateo, “These past four years have blown by so fast. As my last season at San Mateo, my goals are to improve as a team and win our division. We will need to put in a lot of hard work in order to achieve that.”
Last year’s juniors went up onto the varsity squad as they lead the JV to a successful season. One of those leaders was, Jacob Leung. His comment on the season and his goals, “It is two different levels. JV and varsity, but I’m glad I made the team and I will continue to put in the hard work my goal is to beat Burlingame this year.”
The starting five for the varsity is packed with skill and talent. Starter Donovan Washington has been plagued with an injuring, but hopefully will come back stronger than ever and join those starters to lead Mateo to CCS. “This season hasn’t been the best, but once I’m back on the court I hope we can start doing work against other teams. My goal for this final year at San Mateo is to show off my blackness and dunk on somebody.”
All the eyes are on the starters and the captains as they are suspected to lead the team and keep them going as well. Last year the varsity boy’s season didn’t turn out to be as successful as they would like it to have been. The boys were then dropped into the Ocean division. Hoping that this season turns around and they win division, next year Mateo will be placed up in the higher divisions.
Everyday of the week, the boy’s stay late after school to put in their work, and hopefully it’ll pay off. All that sweat and hours will soon be put on the test and it will be evident to see who has really been putting in the hard work, and who has just been shrugging it off.
Good luck to the Varsity basketball team. Their first season game is right after winter break; it’ll be at home. Hope to see all of you guys there and cheer them on!
