The DuBois Central Catholic boys basketball team had a down year last year, but this year’s squad is looking to turn their fortunes around. The team is coached by DCC alumnus Dom Varacallo, and is helped out by fellow alumni Jeremy Maurer and Chris Marshall. Although the team lost several seniors, including Noah Pettanati, Austen Cogley, and Michael Misiewicz, the team doesn’t lack experience in the slightest and has enough veteran leadership to perform the best that they can.

 

The team features seniors Thomas Grecco and John Swalligan, the former having been with the team for years. Grecco in particular is one of the vocal leaders of the team. The largest part of the team, however, is in the junior class. Players such as Justin Miknis, Brandon Walker, and Anthony Kness have a lot of experience playing with the varsity team, while Egan Peck, Jonathan Schoeneman, and Zack Vandervort are now constants on the varsity roster after playing sparingly with the team last year. Peter Downer is a member of the varsity and junior varsity teams, despite not having played the past few seasons. Josh Solnosky, who transferred to Central last year, will miss some time, but will be ready to play once he is eligible. The lone sophomore on the squad is Jonathan Kurtz, who has recovered from a broken wrist that he suffered during the soccer season. Nick Felix and Harrison Starr are the two freshman on the initial varsity roster, and aren’t necessarily there to watch and learn.

 

The Cardinals opened up the season with the yearly Tip-off Tournament, losing to Johnsonburg in the first round, but defeated Marion Center in the consolation game, finishing third overall. The boys latest game was a 80-64 loss to Cameron County, in which the team gave up a good fight, but it wasn’t enough to outlast the physically larger Red Raiders team. As of now, the team stands at a record of 1-2, with a game tonight against Bradford at home. Although the team has lost twice, they’ve put up good fights in both games. The team, as always, has high aspirations for itself, and the team is certainly talented enough to go far this year. We wish the boys team luck for the rest of the season, hopefully not being very injury prone, and we are proud to be supporters of the team through thick and thin.
