          1. Will fans/parents be allowed at games?  A. I believe each player will be allowed to have up to 2 family members present for home games as long as they are vaccinated and masked. 

          2. Will players compete in masks? A. Yes

          3. Will we play a normal schedule? A. Most likely not. The schedule will probably be condensed regards to both conference and non-conference games. But we will still practice regularly.

The 2019-20 Jayhawks finished the season with a record of 26-9 and a conference record of 13-3. The Jayhawks finished 2nd in the conference in the regular season and lost by 1 point to Brooks in the semi-finals of the conference tournament. The Jayhawks also finished in 2nd place of the OPRF Village, losing another very close game to Brooks. The Jayhawks played many of the top teams in Illinois and faced 3 teams from out of state, going 2-1 in those games. Antoine Glasper and Oscar Johnson were chosen to be all-conference and Antoine Glasper was the MVP of the team. Good luck to the former Jayhawks in high school. 

The 2018-19 Jayhawks overcame great adversity to finish the season 24-9 (13-3). 8th grade stars Rodney Murphy and Sam Lewis both suffered serious season ending leg injuries. Despite the loss of Murphy in early in the season, the Jayhawks were still able to win the OPRF Village Tournament for the 3rd year in a row. Sam Lewis was tournament MVP and Antoine Glasper, Oscar Johnson, and Sean Jones were named All Tournament. The Jayhawks defeated crosstown rival Brooks 2 of 3 times on the season, giving Brooks their only 2 losses on the season. With Rodney and Sam healthy again, we look forward to seeing them back on the court dominating in high school this year. 

The 2017-18 Varsity Jayhawks finished their season with a 25-5 record. The Jayhawks were OPRF Village Champions and finished 2nd place in the conference regular season, 2nd place in the conference tournament and 2nd place in the Fenwick Tournament. The Jayhawks went 5-0 against crosstown rival, Brooks. Good luck to the boys as they continue their careers in high school. 

2016-17 Varsity Jayhawks finished with a 33-4 record and were the Champions of the Conference Regular Season, Conference Tournament, OPRF Village Tournament, Fenwick Tournament, and Kenwood HS Tournament. Good luck to the former Jayhawks as they continue their careers in high school!
