Bishop Kelly High girls basketball coach Derek McCormick returned to the Knights this season despite an offseason leukemia diagnosis. His cancer is in remission, and he returned in time for BK’s tryouts. “It’s amazing to have him back,” junior guard Lydia Nieto said. “It’s an opportunity you can’t take for granted because it came so suddenly and you never know when something like that could happen. You always have to be thankful for what you have.”
