The boy’s varsity team from Creative Technologies Academy has been eagerly preparing for the upcoming season. A rigorous week of tryouts and practices kicked off the season last week. The team knows it will have to keep a strong daily focus as game-action quickly approaches at the end of this month with a scrimmage against an always competitive Zion Christian.
Opening the regular season are games at Waypoint Academy and Grand River Prep. Both will be good indicators on how tough is this CTA team, as each team has given them struggles in the past. However, the Chargers have a lot to be optimistic about as the team consists of an assortment of experienced returning players as well talented new faces. Of the returning players, two are seniors Tim Hubbard and David Irish-Empie. Look for them to take a leadership role with their on-court performance, as well as be vocal mentors to a fairly young but talented team.
The Chargers are led by new head coach, Aaron Kenemer and assistant coach, Gerry Verwey. “The focus right now for us is practicing hard and being great each day,” commented Kenemer. “With losing no players to graduation last year, we virtually have the same robust team we had last year with the addition of a new weapon, depth.” Kenemer and Verwey have taken advantage of their team depth to run intense practices that will hopefully pay off throughout the season.
