Friday Night Varsity Basketball Game vs. Howell


This Friday night, the Francis Howell North Knights will be facing rival Francis Howell High Vikings. The boys have been working hard to win this game since this is one of the final conference games.

“We have been practicing hard every day preparing for how Howell will play against us,” senior James Gleeson said.

The team has been specifically preparing for their defense because that has been a recent struggle for them. However, the Knights are not worried and are confident they will beat Howell because they won the last time they played them.

“I think we will come out hot on senior night and make the crowd go crazy!” Senior Collin Toedtmann said.

Since this is the last high school season for 10 of the boys on the team, this senior night will be bitter sweet. The team is very proud of their record this season of 15-4 though.

“I’m very happy with the way our team has been playing so far. We are playing as a team and winning games,” Gleeson said.

The Varsity boys’ game on Friday takes place at the Francis Howell North big gym at 7. Varsity Girls and JV boys play at 5:30, with JV girls playing at 4.
