As the season concludes, the varsity team ends off with a 4-18 record. This season they won against teams such as Eastern Tech, Western Tech, Townson, and Chesapeake.  

Near the end of this season, the lineup changed significantly. Senior captain Caleb Owens and juniors Kelvin Spruill and Parker Douala were some of the notable departures. By the end of the season, only nine original players were still on the team. 

Lots of CHS’ fans consider this year to be a transition year and the reason for poor performance. The team will continue to face challenges. During this offseason, the departure of multiple starting seniors, including Tiree Holmes, Caleb Owens, Ben Hall, Zion Stanley as they graduate this June. 

“We needed to put in more effort this season,” said junior Khalid Davis. “If we would’ve had more time, we could’ve been a better team and had more success. The coaching could’ve been better, too.” 

Even though they didn’t win against Howard, and lost 48-36, but it doesn’t affect them anymore because the season is now over and gives the players time to prepare for next season. 

“The season didn’t go as planned; players didn’t believe in each other which led to us losing a vast amount of games. I’m most likely not going to be playing competitive basketball after high school and will only be playing basketball for fun and recreational purposes afterwards,” said senior Zion Stanley. 

According to Spruill and Davis, they will not be returning to CHS next yearNext year the team will still have the same coach, Dennis Keihm. 

“I feel like we played well as a team, but we couldn’t get enough wins,” said Spruill. “We need to work more on our team chemistry and fix the culture in the locker room.” 

Next year the team will have a completely new lineup and with the assistance of players who will be staying on the varsity and attempt to rebuild the team. 

“I’ll try to make it to every practice next year,” said Douala.
