‘Tis the Season of Titans Basketball

Dan Young, Contributing Writer

Sports are a focus at just about every high school, and CB South is no different than these other schools. The fan sections get excited, and the community comes out to support the teams in all of their matchups. The CB South basketball team has been supported through numerous seasons, and the players hope to have a big season this winter.

Last season, the Titans finished with an overall record of 13-11, (9-6 in the Suburban One Continental Conference). The team ended up finishing within the top four teams in this conference and shared the conference win.

The Titans have two returning starters this year, senior guard Josh Brodie and junior center Chris Hones.

“After playing a lot together this summer, I can say we pride ourselves on team chemistry,” said Brodie. This is going to be huge for the Titans considering they only have two returning starters. However, some of the bench players from last year have made huge strides in the offseason and are expected to have an impact this season.

The starting lineup seems to be fair game at this point, and the younger players will have big shoes to fill in for the graduated players. Juniors Tim Waddington, Ian Vogt, Tom Doyle, and sophomore Jason Reimert all worked hard this offseason to compete for these spots.

Whoever ends up starting is going to have to play well and as a unit early in the season, especially to compete with the more experienced teams in their league. So far, Pennridge seems to be the front-runner in the conference this year. They only lost one senior and have two returning players who earned all conference status last season.

In the minds of many, this season looks like it will be a rebuilding year for CB South. “That is something a lot of players have taken to heart,” said Brodie. “Ultimately, our goal is get sole possession of the conference.” The Titans were close to achieving this goal last year but were not able to finish it off.

To accomplish this goal, the Titans are going to need to have the school behind them all season. “The Titan Terror is easily the most exciting part about the season,” said Brodie. Why should this season be any different?

The fan section has a reputation for getting pumped up for the Titans basketball games. They affect the way the team plays and provide immense support from the tip-off to the final buzzer. They participate fully in the themes of each game and provide excitement that echoes throughout the entire gymnasium.

Last year during the Coaches vs. Cancer game against CB West, the fan section stormed the court after the win. It was a big win against a rival team for South and the biggest turnout for a game all season.

This season appears to be one that could matter a lot for the Titans. They have a chance to make a name for themselves and even surprise some people. If they get their players going and start the season off with a win, hopefully they can keep the momentum going. The season kicks off December 1st against Upper Moreland, so come out and support the Titans as they take on this season!
