You’ll have to excuse Steelville High School varsity girls basketball Head Coach Seth Collins for having a big smile on his face headed into the 2020-21 basketball season. The Lady Cardinals won a district championship a year ago and they’ve got every player back.
The Steelville High School varsity boys have been seeded fourth for the FCNB Bank-It Championship basketball tournament, which will get underway on Monday, November 30, at Sullivan High School.
Heading into the 2020-21 season the Steelville High School varsity boys basketball team has just one starter back from a team that went all the way to the district championship game a year ago. This year’s squad, however, is not without some players who have significant varsity experience.
In running their way to their second straight second-place finish at the Missouri Cross Country State Championships recently, the Steelville High School varsity boys also had to navigate a unique season that featured less competitors, fewer meets, and an ever-present threat of their season being disrupted or ended by just one positive COVID-19 test. All that, however, made the season’s accomplishments that much sweeter for Head Coach Matt Hammonds.
The start of the 2020-21 basketball season at Steelville High School has been delayed by one day due to coronavirus.
