The SCW boys basketball team lost four seniors to graduation from last year’s team, which had a record of 15-7 and lost in the District finals to Wolsey-Wessington.
“Our team is very motivated to have another successful season,” says Head Coach Rod Weber. “Our main goals remain at a high level, and we will work hard to achieve all of them.”
Some key players who played considerable minutes on the varsity squad last year include:
Trent Kingsbury, who averaged seven points and six rebounds per game. Kingsbury also set a school record last year for assists with 158. According to Weber, “Trent has very good floor vision and is a great floor leader in running the fast break and our offensive sets;
Trey Weber, who averaged 12 points and four assists per game. Weber set school records for most three-pointers in a game (nine) and the most in a season (62). “Trey is a good ball handler and shot 39 percent beyond the arc last year. Trent and Trey will both have to provide leadership in the upcoming season,” says Coach Weber;
Noah Dickson, who averaged five points and two rebounds per game as a freshman last year. Coach Weber states, “Noah made an impact last season off the bench and will look to be a starter this season.”
According to Coach Weber, the Blackhawks’ senior leadership, which will also include Jared Goldammer and Devon Weber, and the type of impact the younger players can deliver, will be the keys to success this year.
The boys basketball team is coached by Head Coach Rod Weber, Assistant Coaches Rick Olsen and Matt Henriksen, Volunteer Student Assistant Coach Tucker Kingsbury, and Junior High Coach Craig Lieber.
