The basketball season starts on Saturday. Coach Jeffrey Hamilton said he looks to improve on a disappointing 2017-2018 season and make the playoffs for the first time since he’s been coaching at Kingwood Park. This is his third season at Kingwood Park and he is looking to see his team make a big leap.

“Last season was a learning experience,” Hamilton said. “We were still trying to establish our culture as a program.”

The team is lead by senior center Brett Hisey, who is a three year varsity player. Six-foot senior guard Max Snelus is also one of the most dynamic scorers on the team.

Hamilton said team chemistry is a strength for the team this season.

“We have great chemistry and our guys have great character,” he said.

A weakness for the team this season is experience. Although the team has a lot of upperclassmen, a lot of them are new to varsity.

“Coaching this group is a joy, and we have the ability to do great things this season due to our chemistry,” he said.
