    Good Afternoon,

    First off Happy Mother’s Day to all the woman that support, encourage, and raise the boys that make up CHS Basketball. You’re all appreciated beyond measure.

    Congratulations!!  On behalf of the coaches, I would like to welcome the new families to the Cedarcrest basketball family!!  And welcome back to those returning families.  We are excited with the great energy the boys have brought to set the tone for this shortened season! It’s go time and the next five weeks are going to come fast.  A lot of season information is about to come at you.  Please feel free to reach out with any questions along the way.

    We will not l be having a Parent Meeting this season, please make every effort to read through this entire email. I have uploaded a full practice and game schedule to our website www.cedarcrestbasketball.com You can sync calendar entries as you see fit for your player’s schedule.

    The schedule for the first week is noted on the calendar. Practice Mon, Wed, Fri, Sat. We are on the road to Mountlake Terrace on Tuesday – Bus leaves at 2:30pm, please be there by 2:15pm. Thursday we are at home (More details to come).

    COVID Protocol:

    All players and coaches will be required to wear a mask at all times, a mask will be provided as part of the uniform. Players will be required to submit their attestation daily; they are already familiar with this process. No food will be allowed on the bus and students will be physically distanced as best as possible during travel. If there is a positive case in the program, all players and coaches that have not received the vaccine will be required to quarantine for 14 days.

    *ON THE ROAD: No spectators – please do not be the parent that shows up to an away game and is asked to leave. We need to respect the opportunity to play and the rules in place. There is a short list of parent volunteers that will be allowed to attend away games, they will be contacted directly and informed of the protocols.

    *AT HOME: Each student will receive 2 tickets for each home game. This is the current understanding. I am uncertain at this point how many spectators will be allowed in the gym. Parents may be only allowed to watch their players game and not allowed to stay for other games. I will keep you posted on exact requirements as they are received. Anyone on campus will be required to always wear a facial covering.

    *UN-USED TICKETS: Our booster club will help manage extra tickets if families have any, they are unable to use. We want fans in the gym, so please if you cannot use your given tickets, let’s get them into the hands of people who can.

    Volunteers:

    All volunteers will need to complete a wellness screening before entering both home and away facilities. Please make sure your RSD volunteer paperwork is up to date with the district.

    Travel Gear:  

    I have pre-ordered travel gear; we will be using the same gear that has been used for the last 2 years. If you have travel gear, please locate it, wash it up and get it ready for Tuesday’s game. If you are new to the program, you will get your gear with your uniform on Monday. The cost for a set of travel gear, is $125.00 for the set and will be loaded to your e-funds account, payable by the end of the season. Please give us a week to load charges to the student accounts.

    Live Stream:

    All home games (C,JV,V) will be live streamed through the NFHS network. The subscription is free this year, but you will need to set up an account to view the games. Links can be found here - CHS Sports | Engage (rsd407.org). We will do our best to send out links prior to each game. Additionally, we expect this to be true at all away games and will pass along the proper instructions when they are posted.

    Concussion Baseline Testing:

    This will be done online this year. I will be submitting a roster to the athletic trainer, Chris Kracht; he will be reaching out to any athletes that still require a baseline test. Attached you will find a concussion protocol and information that he would like for you to watch with important information about concussions.

    Boosters:

    Our boosters have been hard at work and will be following up with an email with more information. Please visit the website www.cedarcrestbasketball.com and click on the booster’s tab – you will want to complete your membership and road food fee. You can pay online, order additional team masks, make a donation, and become part of the membership! For away games, players will get a snack bag when they load the bus and dinner for pick up post game. For home games, players will be supplied with a snack bag.

    Rosters:

    Varsity- Jordan Ayers, Lleyton Bergstrom, Chester Brackebusch, Deuces Knowles, Nate Hoyer, Kyle Stupfel, Kian Pegueros-Warren, Tyler Hampton, Hayden Cook, Tyler Wenz, Mason Pudwill

    JV- JT Marsh, Timmy Ojeda-Silva, Cooper Ayers, Tillman Yowell, Isiah Del Degan, Jacob Del Degan, Liam Bissel, Logan Dice, Jack LeBlanc, Charlie Vliem, Braden Altmyer

    C- Bradley Campbell, Andrew Gray, Connor Haraden, Carter Huffman, Jack Irwin, Avery Kleppen, Sam Lingerfelt, Blake Orme, Rod Pena, Charlie Stalnaker, Ethan Swenson

    We are looking forward to a great season!!  Please reach out with any questions at all throughout the season. I will be using final forms for most all communications, however if you need to reach me directly you can do so at ayersjo@rsd407.org or 425-445-6355.

    Finally, a message from our Athletic Director, Jason Frederick:

    STUDENT/ATHLETE ATTENDANCE AND BEHAVIOR

    1.   A student/athlete must be in school for the entire school day that she/he is enrolled in order to participate in an activity, competition or practice that day. Exceptions may be granted for excuses such as medical, dental, court appearances, family emergencies, pre-excused school related activities, or any other circumstance the Athletic Director or Administrator deems appropriate. The Athletic Director or Administrator must approve any exception and should be notified prior to the absence.   Students/athletes on suspensions may not practice or engage in an activity. 

    2.   At the high school level truancy is defined as any amount of time away from class without proper authorization.

    3.   If a student/athlete is absent the last school day of the week, and the next competition is on a non-school day, the parent/guardian must call the school and notify the Athletic Director or Administrator to explain the absence, or the student/athlete will not be allowed to participate.

    4.   Behavior violations requiring administrative actions are established in the RSD Board Student Conduct/Disciplinary Policy #3100. Violations will be addressed using standard school discipline. Advisors and Coaches will also be notified.

    5.   Advisors and Coaches set individual and team expectations. Failure to adhere to these expectations or a lack of respect toward self or others could result in suspension or dismissal from the activity.  Further, no individual or team expectations can supersede the RSD Activity Code of Conduct.

    ALCOHOL; CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES; ILLEGAL USE OF LEGEND DRUGS; AND TOBACCO (CONSUMPTION, POSSESSION, TRAFFICKING, USE, ETC.)

    This section of the code applies 24 hours a day throughout the season.  When student/athletes are off campus where illegal use of alcohol, a controlled substance, and/or drugs is occurring, participants who do not leave the situation immediately are in violation of the RSD Activity Code of Conduct policy. Should a violation occur at a RSD facility or at a school-approved activity off-campus, the standard school discipline sanction will also be invoked. Offenses under this category will be cumulative throughout the student/athlete’s RSD career.

    ACADEMIC STANDARDS (as applied to a Cedarcrest High School student/athlete)

    1.  To maintain eligibility, the student/athlete must be earning passing grades in all classes.  Participants’ grades will be checked weekly by the Athletic Director. (FIRST GRADE CHECK IS 5/10/21)

    a.   If at any time a participant is not earning a passing grade, the participant will be allowed to practice and participate in interscholastic competition for a two-week probationary period.

    b.   If at the end of a two-week grade check the participant is not passing all classes; the participant will be allowed to practice but not participate in interscholastic competition for two weeks.

    c.   If at the end of a four-week grade check the participant is not passing all classes, the participant will be removed from the team. Any participant who is placed on the non-participate list twice for the same class during a season, will be removed from the team.

    Grades are checked every Monday and student-athletes reported will be informed on Tuesday at practice and given an academic probation form from the head coach for the student-athlete to take home and get signed by a parent/guardian.  This must be turned back into the coach the following day to remain eligible for practice or competition.

    We got some great news from our Athletic Department, starting this week we will be able to host open gyms once again.   We are down to 29 days until our 1st day of the basketball season kicking off.  So, the timing couldn't be better! 

    Of course if you are playing a Spring sport that will take priority over open gyms attendance.  Please check with your in season coach before coming to open gyms if you would like to try and do both. 

    Open gyms are optional opportunities for you to grow your game.  Please use the doors that lead you to the locker rooms at the back of the school to access the gym.  All players will need to show their attestation upon entering the gym.  All players and coaches will need to wear mask at all times while on campus. 

    Open gyms times this week:4/6 Tuesday  7-8:30pm and 4/7 Wednesday  7-8:30pm. 

    We look forward to seeing you all in the gym very soon!! Have a great Monday! Coach Joe

    Good Monday morning. We start this morning with another round of discussion concerning Cedarcrest High School’s basketball teams and their postseason chances.

    Both the Red Wolve boys and girls remain very much in the postseason hunt, but the latest round of Northwest District Ratings Percentage Index numbers has some big changes of note to mention.

    Those changes primarily are for the CHS boys. They have dropped out of the top eight, costing them a home game in the first two rounds if this were to hold. They have a ranking of .2864, good for ninth overall, but just ahead of 10th-seed Archbishop Murphy, who beat the Red Wolves head to head in both matchups between the two teams this season. A ninth seed right now would send Cedarcrest on the road for a loser-out game, against eighth-seed Bellingham, although if they drop into the 10th seed, that would send them against seventh-seed Lakewood. The injuries for CHS to their top players have really hurt them, as they have fallen in six straight games, so it’s hoped they’ll get guys back in time to make a late push for a home first-round game as a top eight seed.

    Good Thursday morning.

    From the hardwood, the Cedarcrest High School boys’ basketball team could not hold their lead on the Lynnwood Royals and fell to LHS 52-45 in a Wesco 2A/3A contest at Lynnwood High School last night. Lynnwood outscored Cedarcrest 19-8 in the final quarter to rally from a 37-33 deficit after three to post the win.

    Nicolo Cammarano had a game-high 14 points to pace the Red Wolves. Shawn Deming added 10 for Cedarcrest. Jayden Acosta-Newsome led the Royals with 13, while Jerry Boston and Josh Siscar each added 10 for Lynnwood.

    CHS plays Mountlake Terrace tomorrow. The game is at 7:15 p.m. at Cedarcrest High School in Duvall.

    Time now to talk playoffs. The Northwest District late last night released their latest round of Ratings Percentage Index rankings used to determine district 2A high school basketball playoff seedings, and we have news on where Cedarcrest High School’s girls’ and boys’ basketball teams stand.

    We start with the girls, and a pair of losses this past week for the Red Wolves ladies have seen them drop some more, from fifth into seventh in this week’s RPI rankings. Their number is .444 which is well ahead of eighth-place Sedro-Woolley but with things trending downward at the moment, the Red Wolves really need to get a win under their belt to stem this downward move in the rankings. CHS in the initial run of this two weeks ago started out in fourth, but has seen the ranking decline in the two successive runs as the team has found the going a little more challenging into the meat of the Wesco 2A/3A schedule.

    Cedarcrest, if this holds, could meet any of Blaine, Mountlake Terrace or Bellingham in the first round at home.

    On the boys’ side, Cedarcrest remains eighth, no change from last weekend’s run of the computer. Their current RPI number is .350, well ahead of ninth-place Bellingham. An eighth seed, if it holds, would earn the Red Wolves a home playoff game against either the Red Raiders or possibly Sedro-Woolley or Blaine, both of whom are also contending for that ninth seed at the moment.

    The Red Wolves are playing Lynnwood this Tuesday (girls at home with the Royals) and Wednesday (boys @ Lynnwood). The two teams then play the Hawks (girls on Thursday @ Mountlake and boys on Friday at home in Duvall). So more big games on deck as Cedarcrest looks to right the ship and assert home playoff games in the district playoffs.

    Red Wolves fall: Archbishiop Murphy handled Cedarcrest 62-43 last night at Cedarcrest High School in Duvall. The Red Wolves apparently were without top player Chris Busch, and it appears to have showed as the Red Wolves were held to just 10 first-half points in the defeat. Cameron Brady had 12 pacing CHS while Mateo Trimble had 16 for Murphy. CHS resumes league play next Wednesday night at Lynnwood against the Royals before returning home to meet Mountlake Terrace next Friday.
