Elizabethtown Community and Technical College’s men’s basketball team, the Barons, started its 2013-14 season on Friday, November 1, with a game at Volunteer State Community College. The team is in its second year, coached by John Veague, from the University of Illinois-Chicago, with assistant coach Roman Ritchey, Georgetown College.
Under the leadership of Coaches Veague and Ritchey, the 2012-13 men’s basketball team proved to be a talented group of student athletes with a desire to excel. With victories over Campbellsville University’s JV, Lindsey Wilson JV, Asbury College JV, St. Catharine University JV teams and being competitive with Division I Junior College teams like Wabash Valley Community College (IL), and Volunteer State Community College (TN), the Barons basketball team looks to continue to improve.
“Club Sports at ECTC was designed to provide the students with a variety of opportunities for personal growth and development,” said Dr. Dale Buckles, Chief Student Affairs Officer. “Our athletes and coaches are committed to the game and represent the college with pride. They play for the love their sport, and for the opportunity to excel. We are proud of our student athletes, many who have jobs and families in addition to their studies and their sport.”
The Barons will play 20 games, with the first home game on November 17 at 2 p.m. against Southern State Community College. All home games are played at TK Stone Middle School in Elizabethtown. (Season schedule attached). The public is welcome and encouraged to attend any Barons games.
