MBBALL | Hurricanes Basketball adds Island talent
August 15, 2017
Cheverie, a native of DeSable, PEI is coming off back-to-back championships at Bluefield High School; this past season he was named the league’s Most Valuable Player.
Cheverie, a 6’2, 185 lbs. shooting guard, is coming into the program with great spot-up shooting ability and has shown a remarkable work ethic in his short time with the Hurricanes.
“The overall talent and success of the program that I’ve seen is what really drew me here,” Cheverie said. “It means a lot to be able to play in my home province.”
With the 2017-18 season fast approaching the Island native is predicting early success for his new team.
“I think fans can expect a team that hustles hard, with a torrid offensive pace, that should look to continue on the success of recent years,” Cheverie said.
Making the jump from high school to college in any sport is difficult but Cheverie is up to the task and is looking to make the most of his opportunities.
“I couldn’t have imagined making it to this point at all, but to be able to do it at Holland College makes it all the better.”
Head coach Josh Whitty is excited to add Cheverie to his roster.
“He’s a great kid that comes from a great family. I’m excited to see how he improves as he makes the jump to the collegiate level. His development will make great strides as he’s a tremendously hard working student-athlete.”
The Hurricanes are the five-time defending conference champions as well as the 2017 CCAA national bronze medalists.
November 4 will mark the start of the 2017-18 ACAA schedule for the Hurricanes when they visit the MSVU Mystics; the ‘Canes home opener is scheduled for November 11 versus the UNBSJ Seawolves.
