Highline’s men’s basketball team, in any normal year, would be gearing up for the playoffs around this time of year. Everyone is well aware by now that this is not a normal year.
Due to delays caused by the ongoing public health crisis, the basketball team will play the first game of their regular season in the springtime, on April 2 at Centralia.
Highline’s fall sports teams may be back in action as early as Jan. 2, 2021, NWAC officials say.
The Northwest Athletic Conference, of which Highline is a part, has pushed all sports ahead to winter and spring as they attempt to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic.
After guiding the T-Bird men’s basketball team this past season to a 7-7 record in league play which culminated in an NWAC playoff berth, Head Coach Che Dawson thinks his team can build off last season and be even better this year.
With that said, Coach Dawson is very optimistic about the recruits that he has been able to bring into the program so far.
