Last Wednesday night, the Mount Royal Knights boys basketball team hosted the Concord Christian Academy Kingsmen in a division four matchup. This is Mount Royal’s first year competing at the varsity level for basketball in the NHIAA since the school was established in 1994. Over the past 5 years, Mount Royal has competed at the JV level but as the school continued to increase enrollment they felt it was time to go full on varsity to give their student athletes a chance to grow. So far it’s been a successful transition with both the girls and boys team currently holding a records of 2 and 3. Let’s now see how the male Knights fared against the Kingsmen.
Of course Mount Royal would love for their boys and girls teams to do well this year but ultimately making a smooth transition to the varsity level has been their main focus.
