Football season is coming to an end, which can only mean one thing, basketball season. With expectations high, both teams look to improve on last year’s somewhat disappointing season.
After having a 7-16 record last season, the boys’ team hopes for some major improvements this year. The team only has two returning seniors, Drew Harpold and Kade Harrison. Both bring experience to the team while the underclassmen can learn from them.
“I would like to have a winning season this year since we haven’t had one since my freshman year,” says Harrison.
Returning to the helm is Coach Craig Harmon for another year of Viking basketball. With success in the past, Harmon would like to make a run into the state tournament.
On the other side of the gender barrier, Coach Justin Frasier looks to improve on a season of experience from last year. Returning to the team as seniors are Sarah Williams, Chelsey Hager, Kensey Bergdorf, Mikayla Pursley, and Savanna Williams. Also contributing to the team will be senior Amy Ferrel, senior Katie Robas, junior Emily Oldham, junior Jade Donohew, sophomore Katilyn Thomas, and sophomore Audra Thomas.
“Everyone is doing their best because we know we can be great,” said Sarah Williams.
The team has tons of leadership and experience from last year. Despite last season’s woes, this year’s team looks to have a much better year with the experience.
Both teams hope to have a successful year on and off the court. With lots of fan support from The Mob, intensity in the gym will hopefully inspire both teams to play with pride.
