Knoxville JV Basketball Coach Troy Pearson had high praise for his JV Basketball players.

“This basketball season our JV team’s focus was skill development, gaining valuable game repetitions, and working as a team. Measuring this season by wins, losses and statistics would not adequately represent the amount of effort put in by this team.

They showed time and time again that they are able to fight through adversity and never quit. Each and every player stepped into the role that was asked of them.

A large number of our athletes were asked to play 6 quarters each game night, which at times, was four days a week. The coaching staff couldn’t be more proud of their efforts and growth that was made throughout this season. We are looking forward to the 2020-2021 season!”

Tina Lane assisted Pearson with JV and 9th grade teams.
