As the snow approaches, the JV boys’ basketball team prepares themselves for another great season. With almost all of their previous players moving up to varsity, Sterling Dennis is the only player who remains from last year’s JV team.
Dennis does not see a great difference in the JV team this year, from last year’s team.
“I feel good about the JV team this year, we look good. Something we need to work on offense,” said Dennis.
According to Dennis, Elko will be the hardest team to beat this season.
Sophomore Chris Tyree thinks positively of this year’s team but is aware of a few things that need to be improved.
“We look good this year, but we need to work on a lot.” Tyree added, “We need to improve on ball movement, our plays, and defense.”
Coach Don Walton agrees with Tyree’s sentiment.
“We’re very athletic. Early in the season, we’re starting to play some good defense. Offensively, we have some things to work on,” said Walton.
The team is made up of main sophomores except for Omar Guerrero, who is the only freshman that made the Junior Varsity team. The other JV Bucks are Sterling Dennis, Dawson Cassinelli, Josh Rose, Jacob Von Aspern, Thomas Schwartz, Christian Gray, Roberto Sanchez, Andres Mendoza, Luke Logan, Christopher Tyree, Kyle Tarr, and Liam Sparks, the team manager.
The Bucks will play against Owyhee on Thursday at 1:30 p.m., at the Winnemucca Events Center.
