COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Vanguard High School basketball teams have high expectations for the remainder of the 2020 season.
The Coursers boys and girls basketballs squads are both 8-1 to start their season, and are ranked in the top 5 in the state in the latest CHSAA RPI rankings. The girls team continues to overachieve, winning two of their three league games despite just one senior and two juniors on the varsity roster. Despite the youth, the girls insists the team is clicking, and are hoping the momentum can lead to a deep run in February and March.
"We all like playing with each other," Coursers senior Cortney Arrasmith said Thursday at practice. "We have some talented players, we get along well. We have good coaches, we work hard, and it's paying off."
The Coursers boys and girls teams will travel to La Junta for their next game. The girls game starts at 5:30 p.m. Friday, while the boys play later at 7:00 p.m.
