Back row: Sara Jarmer, Chanel Madson, Alexis Quade, and Kylie Erickson. Charger girls return eight letter winners Charger boys look to be competitive in the conference Perimeter shooting and ball handling will be keys for this squad By Tom Merchant Sentinel Tribune WWG -- Derek Jenniges is starting his seventh year coaching. He is assisted by Pat Merrick and Steve LeBoutillier. The Chargers are coming off a successful 18-7 sea- son (12-5 in the confer- ence.) While the team only has three returning letter winners they are quality players. Mason Comnick 3 times, Jon LeBoutillier 2 times and Patrick Schweim 1 time. Seniors Spencer Knott, Mitchell Comnick, and Dalton Taylor will be joining them. Aaron Theisen (jun- ior), and Jacob Comnick (sophomore) will also be seeing a lot of playing time. The Chargers will have a rather athletic team. Jenniges said, "(they) probably the best group of perimeter shoot- ers and collective group of ball handlers we have had at WWG in the last decade." Jenniges is aware that his team will be under- sized most nights, and will have to focus on team defense and rebounding. "Offensively we must learn to play together and share the basketball with the open man," he said. "This group proved throughout the football season that they are tough competitors and have learned to win," said Jenniges. "We must focus on getting better daily from a team and individ- ual stand point. If we are able to do that we should be able to play competi- tive basketball through- out our 20 plus game schedule. Hopefully play- ing our best basketball in late February and March," he said. Ellsworth has played in the state finals four consecutive years, not los- ing a conference game in three years. "Until some- one knocks them off, they are the team to beat," he said. Jenniges looks for Hills Beaver Creek and Southwest Christian to return strong teams also. Chargers hope out- side shooting will propel the squad By Tom Merchant Sentinel Tribune WWG -- Sheryl Woelber will be taking over the helm as head coach this year and will be assisted by Adam Kletscher. Their squad consists of 16 kids grades 9 -12 and with eight returning let- ter winners. Last year the team was 13-14 overall and 6-11 in the confer- ence. Returning letter win- ners are; Alexis Quade, Kylie Erickson, Kristie Hoffman, Sara Jarmer, Melody Horkey, Chanel Madson, Molly Jarmer, and Anne Woelber. Woelber looks for Madson and Meyer to play key roles on the squad. She also is looking for her outside shooting guards to put pressure on their their opponents. Woelber said, "we are lacking in height, so defending the middle will be something we will have to work on all season." She said, "I would like the girls to be competitive in every game. It would obviously be nice to end the season with more wins than losses." Woelber looks for MCC and SWC to be at the top of the conference with Adrian, Edgerton and Fulda somewhere in the mix.
