Spartan Boys Basketball prepares for a long season full of long practices.

“It’s one of the longest seasons of any sport at SPA. It’s a long and tough and grueling season, but if you get past that and realize you’re playing basketball and everyone enjoys it, that’s a good way to get through it,” captain Gus Grunau said.

Some of the best times on the team happen outside of scheduled practice.

“We get together on the weekends a lot and mess around. That makes it more fun,” junior Ryan Moore said.

Grunau agrees.

“I love everyone on the team. Just spending so much time with my best friends is what makes the season so much fun,” Grunau said.

While the team is close, as captain, Grunau hopes that this season will involve more communication

“I think we’re a pretty quiet team right now, and I want us to encourage each other more on the court this season,” Grunau said.
