Sewanhaka’s varsity girls head basketball coach Alexander Soupios is not worried about his team playing their best basketball now, but rather in February, when his team could potentially be in the playoffs. Making the playoffs is the overall goal for Soupios and the Indians this season.
“Like any team, our goal is to make the playoffs and peek at the best time,” he said. “We want to play our best basketball in late February, not in early December.”
Soupios believes his team will continue to get better with experience and his players will continue to develop great chemistry and confidence. He affirms that confidence is key with the Indians and the more that confidence, grows the better they will be.
Sewanhaka High School’s boys varsity basketball team has their eyes set on the playoffs and beyond this season.
Led by third-year head coach Jason Allen, this could be the year the Indians really turn the corner, after struggling last season.
“We can be a very good team this year,” said Allen. “I think we can be a playoff team. The conference is very deep, but I think we will be in the mix with the top four teams and the playoffs.”
