With Harriton’s net still draped around his neck Monday night, you could almost hear the gears shift in Brett Foster’s head.
“It’s great,” Foster said of the Central League championship his Ridley team had just won, hence the new nylon jewelry. “It’s been a great season, but it’s not over yet.”
Ridley’s ambition this season stretches much farther than just Monday’s win over Conestoga in the Central League title game. The Green Raiders (19-5) have all the momentum in the world, winners of four straight and secure in the knowledge that they’ve just knocked off the top seed in the District One Tournament.
“Our confidence is very high,” senior forward Ameer Staggs said. “Our chemistry is clicking right now. We’re playing the best basketball we’ve played all season. We keep working and working, and we can beat any team in the district if we keep working hard.”
