The varsity boys basketball team at CVHS has recently gotten a new coach. Pete Vaz, who has been coaching basketball for more than 20 years, began leading the Trojans this season.
Vaz not only coaches for school teams, but also has his own nonprofit basketball camp. The camp, Vazball, is an affordable opportunity for kids of different ages to play basketball and improve their skills in a safe environment.
The Trojans have been having a great season. They are 16-6 and are currently prepping for the championships. Senior Jaelen Loche has been on the team for two years now and really likes the new coach.
“He’s great. He has the team running very efficiently,” said Loche.
Vaz’s daughter Aly is the head cheerleader so their family is already very involved with all the sports at CVHS.
“I like coaching at Castro Valley. My daughter is the head cheerleader so I’m already at all the games anyways,” said Vaz.
The team has been having a great season and can’t wait for next year.
“We have had a great year. We’ve exceeded expectations and are hoping for more,” said Vaz.
