Klahowya boys basketball
Head coach: Bryan Thoemke
2016-2017 record: 4-15
Top returning players: Garrett Betzing, senior; Lucas Becker, junior; John Hartford, junior; Jacob Keppert, junior; Gabriel Smith, junior; Nicholas Lewis, sophomore.
Key newcomers: Tim Coots, senior; Jacob Kraft, junior.
Outlook: The Eagles return three starters from last year’s team, yet remain relatively young, which should bode well for the program over the next couple of seasons. The additions of Coots and Kraft gives Klahowya a little more size and athleticism to take on the 1A Olympic League. Thoemke believes the team will be competitive and should contend for a postseason berth.
