Other returners include Dylan Chatt, Connor Feiling, and Garrison Potadle.

Rosenboom says he and the kids are optimistic about the season. “Yeah I think our kids are due for the ball to bounce our way so to speak. Like I said previously we had some guys who dedicated themselves to getting better, getting stronger, and really looking forward to seeing how they do this season.”

The Tigers graduated Alex Camp, Cameron Douglas, and Tyler Petersen last year.

Season Outlook:

The Tekamah-Herman Boys look to build off what they did last year.

The Tigers open up the season at Pender on Friday.

Rosenboom says he’s anxious for the season to start. “I’m really excited to get the season started. I think we have a lot of really great kids representing great families from Tekamah. And I think it’s going to be a fun group to work with. Really excited to get this season going.”

Tekamah-Herman is in Sub-District C1-6 with West Point-Beemer, Logan View/Scribner-Snyder, Wayne, and Winnebago.

Rosenboom says the kids are more confident heading into this season. “I think they know they’re better. I see it from a basketball IQ thing. I can say things and they’re picking it up right away, and we can look at something we did here and fix it and it’s fixed.”

Team: Tekamah-Herman

Mascot: Tigers

Colors: Purple, Vegas Gold

Class: C-2

Conference: East Husker

Head Coach: David Eriksen (3rd season)

2018-2019 record: 6-19 (lost to West Point-Beemer in Sub Districts)

Returning Starters: 5

Overview:

The Tekamah-Herman Girls look for a big season with the return of all 5 starters, including four 3-year starters.

Back for 3rd year Head Coach David Eriksen is Maggie Sheets (5’3, JR PG/SG), Jadyn Fleischman (SR C/PF), Halle Olson (5’6, JR SG), Anna Wakehouse (5’7, SR SG/SF), Aubrynn Sheets (5’3, SO PG/SG), Elena Jetensky (5’7, SO), Kaitlyn Quick (SO SG/SF/PF), Greta Lindberg (5’9, SR PF), and Maggie Braniff (5’7, SR SF/C).

Eriksen says the team went to four camps over the summer.

The Tigers lost Sydnee Brummond, Jennifer Graef, and Jordan Wetzel to graduation last year.

Coach Eriksen feels the Tigers improved a lot from two years ago to last year.

Season Outlook:

The Tekamah-Herman Girls look to do big things this season.

The Tigers open up the season at Pender on Friday. Eriksen on the matchup. “They’ve got a lot of girls that are athletic and they all buy into his system up there. They’re going to be a tough team to play with. If we want to compete and give ourselves a chance to win the game we’re going to definitely have to limit their outside shooting and we’re going to have to be the more aggressive team.”

The Tigers are in Sub-District C2-2 with Oakland-Craig, Cedar Bluffs, Mead, and Yutan.

Eriksen feels the team made strides from two years ago to last year despite having nearly the same record. “If you look at the record from last year it sure doesn’t show that we improved, but you break down each game…we were definitely more physical, we were more competitive, and that confidence has really taken over the team. There were a lot of games last year that the previous year we were out of the game by halftime, but we would bring it to the 3rd or 4th quarter and really compete and give their teams everything that we had.”
