Fleetwood basketball started their season on 7 December 2018 against Bloomsburg High School. It was one of two games they played that weekend. Last year, the Tigers lost to Bloomsburg, but this year they looked to get revenge.

Coming into this year, the Tigers’ past three years have all been losing records. Coach Terry Sitler looks to change things up this year and get the team back on the right track with new Assistant Coach Zack Sitler and new JV Head Coach Justin Soumas.

This year, the Tigers started off with some scrimmages against Tulpehocken and Susquehannock. Against Tulpehocken, the Tigers shot over 45% and just over 40% from the three. The team came down with forty-five total rebounds and twenty assists. It was not all offense for the team, though, as they managed to come up with fourteen steals and two blocks to finish the scrimmage. Fleetwood came out with the win by a large margin, seventy-four to thirty-six.

When the team traveled to Susquehannock, they shot exactly 50% from the field and from three in the two short ten-minute games they played. The team also dished out seven assists altogether and brought in nineteen rebounds. The Tigers won the short scrimmage by a score of twenty-three to sixteen.

The boys first home game was on Thursday, 13 December, where the Tigers hosted the Schuylkill Valley Panthers. Last year, the team traveled to SV but lost when the game went into overtime.
