The boys basketball team (3-0) is off to a strong start this season.  Because their season came to an abrupt end due to the pandemic last March, the Warriors have some unfinished business in their pursuit of a State Title.   Due to the success of this year’s football team, the season started a little later with Covenant opening up against Circle City Conference opponent Roncalli.  Both schools’ saw their football teams win a State Championship the previous weekend, but it was Covenant who came out on top with a 70-59 win over the Rebels.

The Warriors took that momentum to Greenwood Christian Academy last Thursday night, where they routed the #9 Cougars, 87-61.  A couple days later, the team took on Circle City Conference foe, Brebeuf Jesuit, and beat them in a 62-60 thriller for the program’s first win over the Braves.

Senior Caleb Crane and junior Brock Buckley lead the Warriors in scoring, averaging 12.3 points over three games.  Seniors BJ Lomax and Trey Flatt follow closely behind 12.0 and 10.3 ppg, respectively.   Senior transfer, Micah Wilson, has also provided a spark for the team, averaging 3.0 steals per game and 3.0 assists per game, while Buckley and senior Graham Shelton are averaging 5.0 rebounds per game.

The Warriors return to action on Friday when they host Bishop Chatard in a girls and boys varsity double header.  The girls tip-off at 6pm followed by the boys around 8pm.  You can catch the action live at IndianaSRN starting at 5:55pm.
