Boys Basketball

By Natalie O’Brien

The week after fall sports came to an end, winter sports began. Boys’ Basketball just
started practice, learning new drills before the games. There are three teams: JV1,JV2,
and Varsity. Each team has a new coach this year; Turner Botz will be coaching for JV2;  
Anthony Martin will take up the role as assistant coach for Varsity; and Jon VanGrinsven
will also be an assistant coach for the JV1 team.  Our returning coaches are Mr. Martin
and Matt Plate. With the season approaching quickly, the coaches are very excited to
see what the boys will accomplish this year.  Coach Martin is very confident in his team
and has high hopes for this season.  “We hope to continue our streak of finishing in the Top
4 of our conference for the 13th straight year, which includes five conference championships
over those years,” Martin shared.  “We have a strong nucleus of returning players led
by our five seniors: Connor Mara, Max Schommer, Keenan Stevens, Sawyer Huss,
and Matt Reynebeau. Junior Noah Mueller also returns and has been in the starting line-up
since he was a freshman. In addition, we have a strong junior class. We believe we have
the talent and depth to be a formidable ball club and hope to contend for another conference
championship."  As the season begins for the boys, we cannot wait for more games to come
and cheer them on as their journey continues.
