YMCA basketball leagues are giving students who may not have the opportunity to play for the school a chance to show off their skills and have fun competing. Since the fall of 2016, students are forming teams with other members of their class to take on competition around the Andover area. There will be 3 teams featuring Jaguar students playing this winter.

The Caucasian Invasion, featuring all seniors, return to the court after a 7-1 regular season last season. They fell in the semi-finals of the YMCA playoffs.

“Last year we looked great but an early exit in the playoffs from a rival team really put us down. We’ve been training in the offseason, getting better. We’re ready for a championship and we’re coming.” senior Jason Thompson said.

The Gravy Train, sophomores, also return from 2016 season. Having not found as much success, going 3-5 with a first round playoff exit, they will look to turn things around this year.

“I’m feeling really good about our squad this year. We return a great big man and have great shooters all over the court. Even though this is my first year on the roster we already have good chemistry.” sophomore point guard Daxton Strobel said.

There will be another sophomore team competing, although they are unsure of a name. The Sauce Team 6 will not be returning after losing most of their roster to graduating. The Andover Rejects, last year’s champions, have reformed into the Andover Hardwood due to the number of seniors that graduated in 2017.
