Two months later, Colombe and the Knights are finding out a lot more about themselves. The Knights were in action at the Hoop Mountain Shootout at Batavia over the weekend. Kaneland went 2-3, with wins over Bartlett and Sycamore and losses to Wheaton Warrenville South, Oswego East and St. Ignatius.
"I think we're making progress in some areas; we have a long way to go," Colombe said. "We wanted to play good competition in the summer and we have been. It's a work in progress."
The Knights have certainly been busy.
Kaneland's played in a league at Geneva Monday and Wednesday nights. They got in three games at Sycamore the second weekend of June, and three games at Burlington Central June 11.
They beat a short-handed West Aurora team this past week. Kaneland, which plays at Willowbrook next weekend, also had five days of summer camp.
As important as anything, Colombe has got to see several guys in game action. He's had as many as 17 guys playing.
"We've won about half our games, beat some pretty good teams – I'm happy with the effort," Colombe said. "It's giving us an opportunity to see a lot of guys in game situations. We don't expect our offense to look great now. We want to see how these guys compete, how they handle adversity, how they respond when things don't go their way. It's good for us in the long run."
