The Cougars are hungry for another shot at the district championship with fresh senior leadership and young talent at the helm.

Norgrove coached the Cougars to their first playoff victory in school history last season against a tough Rochester High School team. "We like to promote good competition and having honor in everything we do, so that's why one of our slogans is strength and honor," Norgrove said. Norgrove's coaching philosophy emphasizes accountability on and off the court: Players who miss layups or don't box out for a rebound have to do two push-ups. The losing team during scrimmage at practice runs sprints. "We like to have winners and losers, that's just how it works, but you can …
