Heightened Expectations for 2019-2020 St. Pius Boys Basketball Team

(FESTUS) There was a changing of the guard over the summer for St. Pius boys basketball as Chris Miller took over for Eric Lawrence, who became the Athletic Director at Bayless. Miller, a former coach at Grandview, discusses the transition to Pius basketball.

Coach Miller acquired a Lancers group that features 6-foot-7 Riley Naeger, 6-foot-5 Zander Parson, 6-foot-4 Eli Boyer, the Ruble brothers and then some.

Josh and Nate Ruble are no slouches either with both standing at 6-foot-2. Even junior Michael Bollinger is 6’1″. The Lancers fell to Jefferson in the Class 3 District 3 championship game last year and Coach Miller says that that sour taste is part of what motivates this group.

The St. Pius Lancers will begin their season on Saturday the 30th against Van Buren in the Current River Challenge at Lebanon High School.
