LAPLACE — Despite facing a tough schedule and coming into the week with a 6-8 record, St. Charles Catholic boys basketball coach Kemper Todd said the season is shaping up to be a success for a group of young Comets building an identity on the court.

This season, first-year basketball player Randall Campbell is the only senior on the team. Two juniors, four sophomores and one freshman comprise the remainder of the regular rotation.

“We have a very young team this year,” Todd said, adding the boys are still figuring out what kind of team they will be.

“We’re working on developing toughness and identity during practice,” Todd continued. “We play a very tough schedule, and I feel that’s important for our team. We’re looking forward to a very difficult District.”

The team is up to the challenge, according to Todd.

Though he’s still waiting for star players to arise, Todd said junior Jason Bosco and sophomores Owen Bourgeois and Christian Montz have made an impact on the court.

“Those three kids, although very young, are taking leadership on the court,” Todd said. “Last year, the four seniors showed them the way. They have really stepped out.”

Todd said Campbell has also taken a leadership role and shows a great amount of maturity.

The Comets face off against St. Thomas Aquinas and Maurepas next week before moving to a District play Jan. 16 against Lusher Carter.
