After having a team with five seniors on the roster last season, the Underwood Comets will be heading to the hard court this weekend for their boys basketball season opener without a single senior on the roster. In fact, two of the players with the most experience will be sophomores Zack Cottingham and Parker Heger, who join junior Noah Wertz on the "players with a fair amount of experience" list.

Second-year head coach Steve Cottingham says things have been going pretty well in the early-season practices, and he’s confident the team will improve as the players keep working together through the season.

"Practice has been going well," he said. "We’ve got 15 kids, and I’ve been pleased with the effort all 15 of them are making right now.

"Our goal is to keep attitude going forward," added Cottingham.
