After a strong run in the 2007-08 season that included division and league titles and a trip to the state tournament, the Roxbury Rockets boys’ varsity basketball team is looking to build on the foundation that it laid last year. The team started practices last Monday.
“I’m optimistic,” said Head Coach Tom Faraci, who has been at the Rockets’ helm for 13 years. “I think our guys are working hard, I think we understand what we need to try to accomplish in order to be competitive. I think we’re going to have a good year. We’ve got a great group of kids, and they mesh pretty well.”
