Haddam-Killingworth won’t quit
Losing one of your better players to injury usually means better luck next year. However, despite losing Kiley Anderson to a back injury this season, Haddam-Killingworth has not made plans for 2015.
“Obviously they’ve decided not to give up,” H-K coach Jim Bombaci said. “I think they’re playing with commitment to do this as a team.”
The 14-5 Cougars are slated to be one of the top four seeds in the upcoming Shoreline Conference tournament. Cromwell, who is ranked 10th in the state, will most likely be the No. 1 seed in the tournament with Morgan following up at No. 2.
Bombaci said the field is loaded teams like the aforementioned, along with Coginchaug and Old Saybrook. He said his team will have a chance if they don’t forget to play the kind of basketball that got them where they are.
“We have to play as a team,” he said. “Everybody doing their job, everybody working together and everybody caring together.”
