Returning this year….

Only 57 days until the start of basketball season!  We have reason to be optimistic this year.  Last year we were coming in very green.  We had 1 starter returning, 1 reserve coming back and everybody else was new.  We had  a rather steep learning curve.  We competed to the end, losing to Velva in the District tournament by only a few points.  Velva went on to beat Drake/Anamoose and advance to the region tournament.  We have no excuses this year.  I have 6 guys back that saw varsity action last year: Seniors Garret Pollman, Philip Neubauer and Jake Carroll; Juniors Christian St. Claire and Ethan Kerslake; Sophomore Parker Engelhard.  We have many more upperclassmen looking to step in this year and contribute.  We have experience.  We will be the smarter team this year each and every game.  We will not get beat by our own mistakes.  Here are some stats from the kids coming back from last year.  Below is also a short video of our home game against Westhope.


Garret Pollman: 13 ppg, 2.3 apg, 3.4 rpg

Jake CArroll: 6.6 ppg, 6.2 rpg

Philip Neubauer: 3.4 ppg, 3.1 rpg

Christian St. Claire: 4 ppg, 1.2 apg, 1.3 rpg

Parker Engelhard: 5.7 ppg, 2.3 rpg, 1.3 spg


The above 5 guys will be relied upon heavily early on until we get some other kids up to speed!  Can’t Wait!!!
