CCS Basketball Programs Make History!

CCS Basketball Programs Make History!

CCS team and crowd go wild!

CCS's basketball season was one of the most exciting to watch in years! Both the boys and girls teams kicked it in, and their competitive efforts gave the CCS fans some nail-biting, fun-to-watch basketball games!  Our boys team was in the news so much we all lost track.  (Some of the news story links are below.)

Let's recap the girls' amazing season first.  They had their first post season win since 2008-2009 and were first-time Sectional Champions!  Grace Edmonston was named Second Team MVC, and Hannah Randall and Allie Statzer were named Honorable Mention MVC.  After his exciting, successful season with this girls team, Coach Paul Owens said, "While we will lose four seniors, we have a solid core of players returning for next season, along with a deep and talented group of incoming freshman."  He is looking to use the late season success from this season to carry forward to a strong overall 2017-18 season.

The boys team, loaded with seniors, delivered some more-than-memorable basketball.  See some of the news media links at the end of the article!
