Despite losing its three top scorers from last season, Pacifica Christian’s boys basketball team continues to defy the odds, sprinting out to a 4-1 start.
With the most recent victory coming against Los Angeles Adventist last weekend, it appears as if the Seawolves may be on its way to a return engagement in the CIF-SS playoffs.
“We are kind of starting over with what a lot of people thought of as a rebuilding year,” Head Coach Kevin Kelsey said. “But, we want to do well now.”
Kelsey, who coached the Seawolves to the semifinals last season, said that the team’s lone returning starter, Zach McMillan, has picked up the slack left behind by last year’s graduating seniors.
He has averaged 22 points a game while averaging 15 rebounds.
Joining McMillan in the starting lineup are a pair of varsity baseball players. Sophomores Kevin Hammer and Keenan Perrandozzi-Howe have left the spikes and gloves behind to take to the hardwood. Hammer, who has been starting at point guard in place of the injured JR Walker. Kelsey said that he will insert Walker back into the lineup the second he’s able to lace up his sneakers.
Next up for the Seawolves is a road game against Eastside Christian today at 7 p.m.
