New for the 2021-22 Jr Pats season, D1 Training and the Junior Patriots Basketball board members have reached an agreement on eight sessions. Trainers from D1 will be coming to Parkway South during practices to lead our student athletes in basketball specific training drills! The board members are hoping the players will build core strength, improve jumping ability, build quickness and become better athletes.
The agreement will also include an opportunity for boys basketball, girls basketball, wrestling and football players in the Parkway South feeder programs to attend a summer camp at D1 Manchester specifically for those athletes!

On January 14th, the Patriots will take on former player and current head coach of the Windsor Owls, Ryan McArthy in a game played at the Hoosier Gym in Knightstown, Indiana.

That game was moved to Windsor High School with the Owls winning 52-48. Three South players scored in double figures…Tristan Brand-16, Evan Renz 15 and Eddie Ahearn-10.
