QHS Blue Devils Remain Upbeat Despite (0-5) Start On The Hardwood

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Despite their slow (0-5) start to the 2018 prep basketball season, the Quincy High basketball team continues to put in “the work” on the hardwood.

QHS head coach Andy Douglas still believes in this squad in a big way as they prepare to take on the (3-3) Alleman Pioneers on the road on Friday night.

Spirits remain high on this winless team, and this afternoon’s grueling workout session was certainly proof of that.

The team had more than a few distractions to deal with, some involved the Quincy Fire Department, but to their credit, the Blue Devils didn’t miss a beat.

This team is focused on improving, and they’re very attentive to every request made by the coaching staff as they encourage their players to simply…keep hustling!

The blue Devils are coming off a tough 61 to 59 setback against Oswego. That Saturday night loss was a tough one for QHS, but now is no time to dwell on the past.

At this point, it’s safe to say that nobody in the Blue Devil camp has pushed the panic button in regards to shaking up teh starting line-up or changing any coaching styles.

Quincy’s top field general is staying the course while also making a few adjustments along the way. Adjustments that Douglas feels will hopefully help QHS win a few games.
