The Chester boys basketball team is on top of its game right now. The team just finished off University Prep on Feb. 8 and Redding Christian on Feb. 5 to complete a seven-game winning streak.
To boot, the Volcanoes’ win against Redding Christian propelled them to the top of Northern Section Division-VI.
The 54-42 win over University Prep along with the 64-46 victory over Redding Christian improved Chester’s record to 9-2 in league and 20-5 overall. Chester shares the number one seed with Redding Christian who also stands 20-5.
“Our goal from the beginning was to win the section this year,” said Chester’s coach Joe Gilmour. “Chester hasn’t won a championship since 1984. We are poised and ready to go to win that section.”
