Hardwood season starts for Mount Si and Cedarcrest boys

The Mount Si and Cedarcrest High School boys’ basketball programs got their seasons underway this past Saturday with a jamboree at Monroe High School. Both the Wildcats and Red Wolves came out of the event feeling good about things.

The Wildcat varsity split their two games, with their junior varsity and “C” teams also doing well. Mount Si lead assistant Brad Knowles was pleased. “Everyone competed well, obviously some nerves to shake with it being our first action in a while,” he said by email to the SVSJ.

As for Cedarcrest, coach Mark Prince was also pleased with how things went. “It was good to get on the court competing against other teams instead of inter squad scrimmages,” he told the SVSJ by email. “Gave a quick peek on things we need to work on get better in preparation for the season starting this Saturday at Meadowdale then right into league play the following Tuesday at (Archbishop) Murphy. Good opportunity to give all the players a few minutes on the court who have been working hard at practice.”

As the coach noted, the Red Wolves open their season Saturday night at Meadowdale, while Mount Si starts its season Friday night at home against Newport.

Neither the Wildcats or Red Wolves girls’ teams competed in a weekend jamboree. CHS’ girls open their season tomorrow at Liberty, while Mount Si’s ladies start their season also on Friday at home against Newport.
