After an abrupt ending to school sports, boys basketball for Rochester High school is returning this winter. 

All boys’ basketball seasons start on Tuesday, Dec. 8 with the Freshman game starting at 4:00 p.m., Junior Varsity at 5:30 p.m., and the Varsity game starting at 7:00 p.m.

 “I’ve never been more confident and excited about a basketball season before,” Varsity basketball player Mark Williams said about the upcoming season. 

While the team is gearing up to play, the school is gearing up to clean and keep up with coronavirus protocols. 

“Current challenge for basketball is wearing masks during practices. Volleyball is managing, but basketball will likely be a bigger hindrance for the athletes,” RHS Athletic Director Dean Allen said.
