T-Birds get in the groove
There’s plenty of reasons for the Cowichan Thunderbirds to be optimistic about the 2012-13 high school basketball season.
“I think we’ll be a very competitive team,’’ said coach Sandeep Heer, who’s beginning his ninth season at the helm of the senior team. “We’ve got half the guys back.’’
Provincial team member Jerod Dorby and Andrew Larson will be leading the charge in the front and back courts, respectively.
“We’re sitting pretty well with those two guys,’’ said Heer.
Cyrus Grey has also improved immensely, according to the coach, and there’s lots of great newcomers like Braydon Aumen to fill out the roster.
“They’ve been working extremely hard,’’ said Heer. “They’ve set some goals, like provincials. They’re getting more and more competitive in practice all the time, week to week. I’m excited the group is getting on the same page and they want to do well.’’
The T-Birds play Carson Graham Friday at 1 p.m. at Cow High.
