Basketball Time!

Posted in Uncategorized on October 16, 2008 by waukongirlsbball

Hello Basketball fans,  This will be a blog containing an inside look at the Waukon Girls Basketball upcoming seasons.  For those of you that don’t know much about the situation here it is.

There is alot of talented basketball players in the Waukon Indian program right now, many of these players have been playing together for years including JH games and AAU/Travel teams.  These kids have grown up and are now competing for spots on the Varsity roster.

Waukon looks to have a strong team thoughout the next few years and I will give my side of the story as it goes, talk about who is contributing on the court and in practice, add funny comments from players, coaches, and fans thoughout the time.  Details of each victory and defeat, stats, newspaper stories and pictures.

I am starting this a little bit early but there is a buzz that they could do well. Practice starts in three weeks and here is a quick overview of the team and what to expect.

Preseason Overview:  The team will be young in age but experienced to say the least.  Waukon returns 4 starters from last seasons team.  They have another player that started a few games as well, and add transfer player that started all last season as well.  In total they have 8 players that have some varsity experience.  The roster will have only 1 senior, 7-10 juniors and possibly 3 sophmores that could contribute at times as well.  They have Coach Gene Klinge who is the second all time in coaching victories in Iowa High School basketball history (the number one spot is within reach) and he is assisted by Andy Sires.

The team is already doing some practicing working out themselves to get ready for the season, and as soon as volleyball is over all of them will be working together in the last ten days before the season starts.

My early season prediction of win/loss record is going to be: 16-5.  It will be fun to see how close that is at the end of the regular season.  I hope it is better than that but I think it is an attainable goal.

I will update a few times before the season starts, have some info and let you meet the actual players who will be taking us on this ride.

see you soon.
