Blackhawk Boys excited for new season

Weber to retire from coaching after 2018-19 season

Members of the Blackhawks boys’ basketball team in grades seven through 12 for the 2018-19 season are front row, left to right: Evan VonEye, Gabe Freidel, Dylan Klich, Michael Hoffman, Aiden Lieber, Westin Hagman, Trey Moody and Carver Lindsey; second row: Toby Kneen, Coen Harvey, Cody Slykhuis, Jeff Boschee, Chase Linn, Cooper Goldammer and Carter Christian; third row: Tryce Slykhuis, Ryan Poyer, Andrew Lindgren, Spens Schlicht, Phillip Hines, Mason Moody and Trey Ulmer; back row: Kadin Schlenker, Sawyer Senska, Cayden Slykhuis, Malachi Bruce, Tater Moody, Noah Dickson and Austin Schmit.

The 2018-19 basketball season is upon us, and both girls and boys basketball teams show great promise and potential for a successful season, but not without some changes being made. Both the boys and the girls have new players to fill in some important roles left open from graduating players on last year’s teams. Along with that, some coaching responsibilities will be slowly changing hands, with the complete switch to come at the end of the season.

Coach Rod Weber is set to retire from the Head Boys Basketball position after his 20th season for Woonsocket and SCW. Coach Weber has a career boys basketball record of 225-151, and his combined head girls and boys coaching career record is 277-199. Weber has been one of a handful of coaches who continues to be an administrator. “This doesn’t happen very often, so I’m very thankful that our community has allowed me to maintain both of my passions as a basketball coach and as a school administrator.”
