Sports: Boys basketball players set goals for the season

Rock Creek basketball has always been entertaining and worth watching on Tuesday and Friday nights. The team hit practice hard from the beginning on Nov. 13. The boys had 17 days, or 13 practices, until their first home game against the Clay Center Tigers. Since then, the boys have won all four games.

“I want us to win all the season games, so our goals are to have an undefeated regular season and to get first seed for state, win league and sub-state,” senior Martin Vogts said. “I personally want to break the record for most points scored in a game, which is like 37, and I also want to get the most career points, which means I’ll have to score, like, 24 per game or get 600 points this season.”

Many of the players say they want to go to state, which is a great goal and definitely doable for the boys.

“Team-wise, I just want to win state actually,” senior Skyler White said. “It’s definitely been a goal for us four years in a row, and we’ve never won it, but I definitely think we have the talent to do it this year.”

While the boys have their goals, coach Jim Johnston said that the team needs to continue to improve.

“We’ve had our ups and downs,” Johnston said. “We’ve played three games so far, a total of 12 quarters — six really good quarters, four great quarters and then the other six quarters, we’ve found things we need to work on. We’re still struggling trying to get everybody on the same page and everybody figuring out there roles.”
