HCC Hoop Teams Ready to Open Season
Cougars Basketball Prepared to Hit the Court
The Holyoke CC men's and women's basketball teams are ready for the 2018-19 season's opening tip offs. The Cougars hoop teams get their seasons started playing in a double header hosted by Springfield Technical CC on Tuesday, November 4th. The ladies will play first at 5:30pm followed by the men who start at 7:30pm.
Men's basketball is under the guidance of head coach Chris Montemayor, who enters his 14th season with the team. At the helm for the Lady Cougars is first-year head coach Joseph Paige, who comes to HCC with a wealth of experience. Men's basketball returns one player from 2017-18 as Jovan Rivera (Amherst, MA / Amherst Regional HS) begins his sophomore season in the Cougars uniform. Rivera is joined by a talented and eager group of freshmen who are prepared to make an impact at the college level. The Lady Cougars have a team comprised entirely of first-year players with several high school standouts who are prepped to hit the court representing HCC. Let's go Cougars!
