KINKORA – One of the challenges facing a small school like Kinkora Regional High School (KRHS), especially in the winter, is competing with other sports for athletes.

“One of the priorities for KRHS athletics is to generate sporting opportunities for our student-athletes,” said KRHS athletic director Trent Ranahan. “In respect to basketball, historically speaking, a majority of our student-athletes participate at various levels in the minor hockey system.

“That alone can create a problem having enough students interested in basketball.”

However, Ranahan noted he has seen an increase in basketball interest at KRHS over the past several years.

“Both basketball teams (boys and girls) are comprised of students who play hockey, and students who do not. For the most part, the student-athletes who do not play hockey are the students where I see the increase interest for basketball.” Kinkora athletic director Trent Ranahan

“Both basketball teams (boys and girls) are comprised of students who play hockey, and students who do not,” added Ranahan. “For the most part, the student-athletes who do not play hockey are the students where I see the increase interest for basketball.”

Ranahan added KRHS is very fortunate to have knowledgeable and dedicated coaches guiding the basketball teams.
