Varsity boys basketball started their season strong with a win against the Weiss Wolves 58-45 on Friday, Nov. 15. 

The Warriors started the game evenly matched with Weiss and were barely able to take a lead in the beginning, but as the game progressed they began to pull ahead. Christian Robinson ‘20 made a 3-pointer, which was followed by Santi Campos ‘20 stealing the ball after a Wolf fell down and then running down the court to score. In the second period, Anish Maddipoti ‘20 grabbed the ball after the Wolves failed to score and passed it to Brandon Parks ‘20 who made a basket to end the half with the score 30-25 in favor of the Warriors. 

“Since it was our first game of the season we got mentally prepared for it and we were ready to go,” Marcos Martinez ‘20 said. 

The second half started with a few free throws. After the foul shots, Luca Cipleu ‘21 scored and right after Weiss made a shot, Parks stole the ball and passed it to Maddipoti to score. In the final quarter, most points were made from free throws, including two from Eric Kipper ‘21 and two from Zach Engels ‘22. Campos scored a 2-pointer right after one from Cipleu and the Warriors won 58-45. 

“It was our first game so we had a few mistakes that we can clean up but we’ll get better,” Parks said. 

The team will play the Elgin Wildcats next on Tuesday, Nov. 19.
