Boys Varsity Basketball Continue to Climb.

Starting out undefeated at 7-0, the Warriors would receive their first loss of the season against Churchland. This record is not including the 51-65 loss to Norview during the main event of Howard White Hoops Classic weekend. Kecoughtan would manage to claim wins against powerhouse teams such as Bethel, Hampton, Warwick, Gloucester, and even the State Championship runner-up Phoebus.

Averaging 30 points a game, the Warriors have achieved new heights of formidability, led by Head Coach Willie Gause. The Warriors have established themselves at Playoff favorites for the regional title, being undefeated in Region wins at 7-0. In the entire state, Boys Varsity has improved their ranking from last year from being 120th to being 93rd.

The Warriors fell short last year against Nansemond River in the first round of the VHSL Regional Playoffs, achieving a record of 7-3, the Warriors this year have already claimed a win streak not seen at this school in a long time.

It’s still early in the season, but while everyone else sees the Warriors as Regional favorites, I see them as State Champions. I could be crazy, or I could just be sane enough to see that Kecoughtan will win the State title this year. Last year, Phoebus almost won the State title, they fell in the Championship to Northside, 58-60 was the final score. This year, Kecoughtan could be potential favorites for the State Championship.
