This year, the JBHS Girls basketball team will only have a varsity team of eleven or twelve people. There were not enough people to have a junior varsity team. Only one player from last year’s team was a senior. Everyone from last year’s varsity team is back this season.
The JBHS Boys basketball team had nineteen kids tryout. They started with ten on varsity and the rest on junior varsity. Only one varsity player was a senior last year. Currently, the varsity team has two seniors, two juniors, five sophomores, and one freshman.
Both varsity teams have a preseason scrimmage against Searsport on November 28th. They also play in a preseason tournament Friday, December 1st at the University of Maine Machias.
