Fairfield Warde juniors Justyn Davis and Jordyn Davis will miss the boys basketball season after being declared ineligible, Warde coach Ryan Swaller confirmed Thursday.
The Davis brothers, both 6-foot-4 guards/forwards, were both All-FCIAC Second Team selections last year for Warde. They were expected to help the team be a league contender. Swaller said they can still practice with the team.
“This would hurt any team. They were a key part of a 16-4 regular season last year,” Swaller said.
Swaller, now in his 12th season, also noted that a third starter, 6-6 Jack McKenna, did not return to the team this season. McKenna was an All-FCIAC pick as well.
Warde opens the season Friday at home against St. Joseph. Game time is 5 p.m.
“We have a quality group of kids, including five seniors, who are looking forward to start the season,” Swaller said.
