FROM PAGE 7A

STRENGTHS: Coach Bart George said they have a few kids with lots of experience and will help the less experienced wrestlers improve quickly. WEAKNESSES: George said they have low numbers. He said wrestling has a high rate of attrition and the children often quit when practices get tough. He said their small team should be a strong group. COACH COMMENTS: George said they have a group of young wresters that lack experience, but are very athletic and tough. Jordan Battle, Colton Malsbury and Freedom Struthers could be dangerous at their weights, he said.

ner Linton scored five. Friday, Dec. 6, the Spartans travelled to Nine Mile Falls for a game with Lakeside, another strong team. Lakeside won 89-39. “Lakeside shot the ball very well for 32 minutes,” Hartwig said. “My book had Lakeside shooting just shy of 80 percent from the field. You are not going to lose very many basketball games shooting the ball like that.” Priest River was down 27-16

AGE: 31

at the end of the first quarter and trailed by 21 at the half – 47-26. Koch led Priest River scoring with 19 points. He also grabbed 11 rebounds. Colton Nunley hit two 3-pointers for the Spartans. Others hitting 3-pointers included Koch and Hunter Hartwig. Hartwig said he wasn’t disappointed with the team’s effort. “As a coach, I am not disappointed by any stretch starting the season like this,” he said. “It will take time to gel as a team with our

group, due to young players and 12 kids that have not been on the court a whole lot together.” The team plays hard, he said. “We just have to play a little smarter, and take care of the basketball,” Hartwig said. Priest River played at Newport after deadline Tuesday. They will host Riverside Thursday, Dec. 12. The game will start at 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 14, they will play Deer Park at home. That game will start at 4:30 p.m.

Meet Your Spartans

PRIEST RIVER THE MINER

SPARTANS



BOYS BASKETBALL TOP RETURNEES: Seniors Jimmy Koch, Zach Roland, Tanner Linton, Thomas White, Jalen and Jesse Griffin, and Colton Nunelly; juniors Jeremy McDonald and Trent Slinger; sophomore Mason Clark; freshmen Hunter Hartwig and Tommy Anselmo TOP PROSPECTS: Priest River coach Heath Hartwig says Jimmy Koch, and Zach Roland are two big guys that will give other teams a lot of problems. “Tanner Linton is another strong, physical kid that opposing players better keep track of,” Hartwig says. Colton Nunelly is another to keep your eye on. He is a fast perimeter player that shoots the ball extremely well. KEY LOSSES: RC Akre and Cam Riley graduated. OVERALL PROJECTION OF TEAM’S CHANCES IN THE INTERMOUNTAIN LEAGUE: “I think that we will be extremely competitive in our league this year,” Hartwig says. “Our expectations are certainly first in our league.” STRENGTHS: Hartwig says the Spartans are a very fast physical team that will defend the ball from baseline to baseline. “We rebound the ball extremely well,” he says. His starting front line players are 6

feet, 5 inches and 6 feet, 4 inches tall, as well as being skilled players. “We have very good outside shooting Mason this year also,” he Clark says. “We can put Sophomore #10 opponents in very tough situations in games that the outside shots are falling.” WEAKNESSES: “We only have three true posts, so we are going to have to keep our big guys out of foul trouble,” Hartwig says. “We have some young guards that will have to learn in a hurry how to take care of the basketball.”

Tanner Linton Senior #14

Hunter Hartwig Freshman #21

TOP RETURNEES: Seniors Jill Weimer, Amber Trantum and Karly Douglas; junior Katlyn Summers. Weimer is a two-year all conference player and was last year’s Intermountain League MVP. Aimee Warren Junior #44

KEY LOSSES: Steffie Pavey, Melissa Trost, and Kelsie Fink all graduated. TOP PROSPECTS: Juniors Angel Clark, Elisa Williams and Lily Luckey

Jimmy Koch Senior #24

Jesse Griffin Senior #30

Zack Roland Senior #44

STRENGTHS: Inside game with Jill Weimer and Katlyn Summers; these two can dominate both offensively and defensively, coach Stewart said. Also, he thinks they should a bit quicker than last year.

COACHING EXPERIENCE: Six years total; this is his first year as a high school head coach.

Thomas White Senior #33

Trent Slinger Junior #35

Mark Schultz Asst. Coach

OCCUPATION: Professional land surveyor, business owner ATHLETIC EXPERIENCE: Hartwig played basketball, football and golf at the high school level and basketball at the college level.

Jeremy MacDonald Junior #23

ASSISTANT COACHES: JV coach Kevin Wylie and C team coach Mark Shultz

Colton Nunley Senior #20

WEAKNESSES: “We hope to improve our perimeter shooting, specifically our three-point percentage,” coach Stewart said. “Consistency was an issue with our outside shot, so if we can find a couple players that can give us a presence outside and take some of the pressure off of Jill and Katlyn, we’ll be able to compete in any game.” On defense,

their biggest area for improvement is their tendency to foul and put the opponent at the free Angel Clark throw line. Junior #12 HEAD COACH: Gary Stewart

BOYS BASKETBALL TOP PROSPECTS: “Alec Bluff and Chad Browneagle will have a huge impact on our team this year,” Cusick coach JR Bluff says. “Their games are much improved.

I also look for Cameron Bauer to take more of a role this year, adding some offense and becoming a defensive stopper as well.” KEY LOSSES: “We graduated four from the varsity last year,” Bluff says. “Derrick Bluff and Ryan Sample were my floor leaders and both were all-league players. John Cutshall and Jess Brazda were solid rebounders for me all year.” OVERALL PROJECTION OF TEAM’S CHANCES IN THE NORTHEAST 1B NORTH LEAGUE: “I see us again fighting for the league championship with Selkirk and Republic,” Bluff says. “We are all reloading this year.

Griz open season with win

BY DON GRONNING OF THE MINER

NEWPORT – The Newport boys basketball team was playing short handed in their first game of the season, with only seven varsity players suited up. They still got a 49-46 win at home against Deer Park Tuesday, Dec. 3 “It was nice to start out the year with a victory,” Newport coach Steve Bryant said. “We focused on attacking the defensive glass and limiting their second chance opportunities.” Newport’s big man, 6 foot 4 inch Connor Mullaley picked up some fouls early, so Bryant sat him down and slowed the pace to a crawl in the first half.

John Lyon finished with a game high 16 points and made two crucial 3 pointers in the fourth quarter, Bryant said. Konkright displayed good ball control throughout the game and came up with a key steal with 11 seconds left that led to a lay-up to put the Griz ahead by four points. Bryant also had words of praise for Nic Allen, who played

The Grizzlies entertained St. George’s Friday, Dec. 6, losing 59-27 to the defending B school state champions. “We knew coming into the game they were one of the best teams in the state,” Bryant said. St. George’s played like a championship team, taking a 21-4 first quarter lead. They were up 33-9 at the half. Newport executed their offensive sets, Bryant said, but

couldn’t make shots. St. George’s size and speed also gave Newport problems. “They crashed the boards hard and capitalized on second chance points,” Bryant said. “It was a great test to see where we are early in the season.” The Grizzlies entertained Priest River after deadline Tuesday. They will travel to Bonners Ferry Saturday, Dec. 14, for a game that starts at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 17, the Grizzlies will travel to Lakeside for a game that gets underway at 5:45 p.m.

“It is a lot of fun but also a lot of work having to go back to the basics,” Saxe said. “But this will be a team to watch as it grows and matures over the next couple years.” Newport coach Bart George said the Jamboree went well and it was a good pre-season test for the Grizzlies. “I was very happy with their performance,” George said. “It showed that they have been working hard and improving their skills quickly. We wrestled 18 matches at Selkirk and won 13 of them.”Newport wrestlers Nolan Finley, Alex Smith and Austin Krogh were unbeaten on the night and Miles Finley, Freedom Struthers and Colton Malsbury all recorded wins.

Most of the team began in our little guy program,” coaches said. WEAKNESSES: “We are a very young team with no seniors or juniors. We still don’t have all the weight classes filled,” coaches said.
