Kingston Boys Basketball | Winter Sports Preview

Head coach: Henry Guterson (first season)

2018-2019 record: 1-19 (1-11 OLY 2A)

Key players: Jack Hermanson, sr., F; Zach Mead, so, G/F; Camas Unsell-West, jr.; Chris Russell, jr., G; Goo Setterlund, jr., G/F; Kingston Trichler, jr., G/F; Dylan Baze, jr., F; Orlando Chiquiti, so., G.

Outlook: Guterson comes to Kingston after spending the previous year as the North Kitsap boys JV coach and the two years prior as the Bainbridge girls varsity coach, which included a 13-9 record in 2017-2018. Guterson has another connection to North Kitsap as he played at Bainbridge under head coach Scott Orness, who now coaches the Vikings. He’ll take over a Bucs program that has struggled the past few years and will rely on his three returners Hermanson, Mead and Unsell-West.
