The Ballard High basketball season begins tonight with home games against Glacier Peak. The freshmen (JVC) game begins at 4:15, JV is at 5:45 and varsity kicks off at 7:15 p.m.
If you can’t make the varsity game, you can still listen to the action live on the new community radio station KBFG (107.3 FM and streaming here). The new live broadcast will be hosted by former Ballard head coach Billy Rodgers and former Assistant Coach Jon Adams, who call themselves the “Coaches2x” broadcast team (pictured above).
As for the varsity hoop dreams this season, assistant coach Jaime Quick sums it up:
Coming off a thrilling playoff run last year, the Beavers are rebuilding after all 5 starters left that inspiring team from last season – however a young crop of hungry players have been working year round for the season upon us. A good time to be a Beaver fan!
Head coach and math teacher Mike Broom is back again this year to lead the varsity team. Ballard alum Brad Baker is coaching the JV team and alum Ron Coacher is leading the JVCs.
Here’s the schedule for the year:
