“Go somewhere else with the “they recruit” allegations, whatever they’re doing, it’s good for basketball, good for players and the schools.” – Fred Robledo, quoting himself
Workman and Keppel have become hotbeds for boys and girls basketball and all four varsity teams are among the best in the Valley. Workman boys are 22-1 and the Lobos’ girls are 20-4, having beaten previously undefeated Duarte in back-to-back games recently. The Keppel girls are among the best in the Southern Section at 20-4 and the boys are tied for first in the Almont with a 17-8 overall mark. How do they do it? You don’t necessarily think of Keppel and Workman as basketball factories, but that’s what they’ve become. Go somewhere else with the “they recruit” allegations, whatever they’re doing, it’s good for basketball, good for players and the schools. What’s even more impressive is the atmosphere. Both schools remind me of the 80s and 90s when gyms were packed and the crowds were into it. There’s not enough of that lately.
