Clippers open OFSAA Monday

The Kennedy Clippers sr. boys basketball team is back at OFSAA for the first time since 2021 when they won silver in the AAA division. "This is the first time since I can remember, and obviously I feel very spoiled saying this, that we have kids on our team who haven't been to OFSAA." said head coach Mike Harrington.

Under Pat Osborne the program won seven straight WECSSAA titles before shifting to prep in 2022. Harrington guided the Clippers to the AA final last year losing to Herman. With a young team this year, he has preached outworking the opponent. "Trying not to focus on those outcomes and focus on the things we can control like rebounding, playing defence, our effort levels, loose balls. As long as we can say we put in that effort, whatever happens at the end is going to happen." Harrington said.


He brings a young team to Ottawa ranked 15th heading into the 20-team AA tournament. The Clippers open against #5 seed Sudbury's Ashburn College Monday at noon in Ottawa. "Pat (Osborne) and I coached a 1-seed at Forster and we lost to the 16 so the seedings are whatever to me," Harrington said. "As long as we go there and play our game I think we'll be ok. We can't really worry about what other people are saying about us."
