The 2013 boys basketball season ended with success and a little heartache for Central Catholic.
Coach Dan Munson and the Rams made it to the championship game and finished second.
Coming into the 2013-’14 season, the program is looking to maintain momentum. The team is young, with only one returning senior, Ryan Nall.
“I’m really excited to build off the success of last year’s team and looking forward to the identity of this team,” Munson says.
“The skill improvement and maturity of the current junior class will be a key to the continued success of the program.”
Look for this year’s team to use their athleticism in the transition game as well as a hounding defense.
This year’s Rams have the ability to play multiple positions and are well rounded. Opposing defenses will not be able to hone in on one player because there will be many players who can score and make things happen.
