The 2017/2018 Hornets have a large group of returning players. Leading the Hornets this year will be a Grade 12 contingent full of offensive fire power.
Dennis Cook is a scorer and can shoot from anywhere. Nexon Asis is our lock down defender and floor general, while Rango Ochan is our X-factor- he can hurt you with speed or with his shot. They will look to continue what they started last year and build upon their success.
Our Grade 11’s, coming off a JV Tier 2 championship, will join our team and help bolster our roster. Myles Marasigan is a slashing guard and can get inside and create for his teammates. Henok Temelso is another guard who can defend and push the tempo to create easy points. Both of these guards can extend the game and shoot deep. They will be a welcome addition to this year’s Hornets team. Tec Voc will be playing a run and gun style game where we push the ball deep and kick the ball out for open shots.
Look for our quickness and pressure to force turnovers and up the tempo against every team. We play a gritty style of quick ball and it should be a lot of fun to watch! Coming off a successful season last year, this edition of Hornets Basketball look to build and improve on all facets of their game. After losing in the finals last year for Tier 2, they look to bounce back and win the championship along with taking another run to the finals of this year’s WIT. This team has improved from top to bottom and they look ready to have a break out season.
Coaches: Daniel, Shynkaryk, Randy Strong, Emil Contreras
