(AUDIO) BRLD Boys hoping to be successful this year; Girls looking to reload

Team: Bancroft-Rosalie-Lyons-Decatur

Mascot: Wolverines

Colors: UCLA Blue, Black, and Gold

Class: C-2

Conference: East Husker

Head Coach: Cory Meyer (4th season) (54-24 record)

Returning Starters: 2

The BRLD Boys Basketball Team returns 2 starters and a host of contributors from last year’s 15-11 team. Head Coach Cory Meyer.

Trent Gatewood (SR) and Kenyan Lovejoy (SR). And for those that helped contribute last year was also like Hunter Ferguson (SR), Nick Ronnfeldt (JR), Jaxon Johnson (SO), Michael Snyder (SR), Will Gatzemeyer (SO), did I say Darwin Snyder (SO)?”

The Wolverines are relatively young this season.

BRLD hopes to be good this year. Meyer says a lot of talented, younger players will see the floor for the Wolverines.

“We’re going to be playing quite a few young guys, and nice thing about them is that not just because they’re young, but they have a lot of energy with them. And Basketball IQ’s pretty high there. And I’m excited to have those younger guys play with the older guys, and it could be a really fun dynamic.”

The Wolverines open up the season on November 30th at home against Omaha Nation.

Team: Bancroft-Rosalie-Lyons-Decatur

Mascot: Wolverines

Colors: UCLA Blue, Black, and Gold

Class: C-2

Conference: East Husker

Head Coach: Rod Peters (6th season)

Returning Starters: 3

The BRLD Girls Basketball Team brings back 3 starters from last year’s team that went 16-9. Head Coach Rod Peters.

“Vicki Gatzemeyer (SR) returns. She’s started since her freshman year. So she will be put in a spot where she is a major contributor for our team. Probably also being in a starting role is Tiahna Bonneau. She’s another senior. At times she started last year. Someone who is maybe a little bit undersized in the post, but is extremely strong, and works extremely hard. Also looking at probably Paige Peters (5’6 JR) as another starter at a guard position. She’s someone who started last year, came off the bench as a freshman, and as a sophomore started for us. So we look for her to do a major increase in her scoring than what she did last year.”

Peters says others who could potentially start include Mariah Petersen (SR), Sophia Henneman (5’4, SR G), and Brandi Simonsen (JR PG).

BRLD begins the year on November 30th at home against Omaha Nation. Peters says he expects a battle with the Chiefs.

“He’ll have a lot of talent out there. They’ll be able to run the floor. They’ll be good competition for us coming out of the gates there on Thursday.”

The Wolverines knocked off Omaha Nation 79-36 on the road in last season’s opener before beating the Chiefs 67-34 in Sub-Districts.
