GROVE CITY, Pa. (WKBN) – The 2022-23 Grove City Eagles achieved something that the boys program hasn’t accomplished since 1999: winning the district crown. Coach Chris Kwolek’s group topped Hickory (47-40) for the third time in the same year behind Nathan Greer’s 21-points to win the title.

“We expect to take that confidence from last year’s team and parlay it into a solid campaign,” Kwolek said. “With winning the first district championship in almost 25 years, expectations could not be higher.”

The Eagles return all five starters with guards Gavin Lutz, Jimmy Irani and Brett Loughry all back along with Nathan Greer and Kam Martin. Grove City will also have junior Paul Grubb and sophomore big-man Ben Fischer in the fold as well.

“We have almost every category checked off to be successful. We have size, speed, shooting and skill,” Kwolek said.

The Eagles will open the season at Reynolds on Dec. 5.
