Boys Basketball Outlook: Cedar Crest

  Cedar Crest Falcons 2022-2023 Boys Basketball


Last year was not the typical Cedar Crest, with the Falcons finishing the season below .500 (10-12, 3rd place in Section One).  However, the team was young and remained competitive, while also giving key minutes to six players who will return to the court this season.  Those key pieces that are returning are guard J’veon Reyes Vega (Sr.), guard/forward Nolan Groff (Sr.), 6’6” forward Aiden Schomp (Jr.), guard Owen Chernich (Jr.), guard Leo Tirado (Jr.), and guard/forward Fernando Marquez (Jr.).  This experienced group will help Cedar Crest build upon what they were able to accomplish last year.  

For Crest, the goal is to win Section One en route to competing for the League Championship, something they have done three times under the leadership of Coach Tommy Smith (the last was 2020).  If they can do this, the Falcons hope to make a run at the District 3 Championship and clinch a spot  in the PIAA State Tournament.  In addition to the upperclassmen that will help them in trying to reach these goals, Coach Smith believes that as many as eight sophomores may see varsity action this season.  If this happens it  will not only aid the current season, but will build depth for the future.  If Cedar Crest can find the right balance, they should be in a good position to achieve the goals that they have set for themselves.
