Boys Basketball

2023-24 Season Review

The 2023-2024 boys basketball season started a youth movement in the program. A freshman and two sophomores were in their top six, and they really only played one senior. Senior Drew Kegerreis had a standout season for the Royals! He was named All-Circle City Conference, All-Marion County 2nd Team, Academic All-State 1st Team and he broke the record for the number of three-pointers made by an individual in a season with 71. Drew also was named MVP, and he was presented with the Sportsmanship Award. Sophomore Joe Taylor earned All-Circle City Conference recognition, and senior Eli Miller was named Academic All-State Honorable Mention. Senior Charlie Elsener was awarded both the Mental Attitude and Leadership Award at the team’s annual banquet. 

After the first 14 games, the Royals were a .500 team, but the team finished strong with a 15-10 record. For both the players and coaches, the most memorable experience of the season was sectional week. The Royals were able to get wins over Franklin Central and Decatur Central before losing to Ben Davis in the championship. The players got to experience a real Roncalli atmosphere! The students and community really showed up to support the team, and it was quite the experience to witness. It is something the team will never forget, and the program intends to build on that momentum. 

Coach Jamin Wernke R’02 said, “This team was a pleasure to coach! We never let egos get in the way of team success. Everyone figured out their role and their piece of the puzzle, and by the end of the year, we were a tough team to beat. We will miss our seniors, but we are really excited about our future. We have a lot of experience coming back and some young players that are ready to compete.”
