EDON BOYS BASKETBALL SENIORS Floyd Young, Luke Price, Alex Kirkingburg.

Coming off of a 9-13 record, with a 5-5 conference mark that saw them finish
third in the BBC last year, Head Coach Travis Arkwright will have his work cut out
for him this season. Losing six letter winners from that team, including major contributors Jacob Brown and Brock Thiel, the Bombers will only be returning three
previous letter winners. Not to mention that one of them, senior Alex Kirkingburg
didnt play last season, while juniors Landon Bloir and Jim Peckham, were limited
contributors in their sophomore seasons. Seniors Luke Price and Floyd Young will
make nice additions to the young squad, bringing maturity and athleticism with
them. This team should see some success shooting the ball on the perimeter, yet
still has some guys capable of crashing the boards. Size is an issue, however, as
Edon has just two players eclipsing the six foot mark. This will make things difficult for the team in the post. Coach Arkwright believes that Stryker and Hilltop
might just have the most talent coming back this season, but isnt ruling out traditional conference powers Pettisville and Fayette from making a run at a league
title.

COACHS CORNER
Edon Girls Basketball Head Coach John Gallehue is hoping to limit the number of possessions
wasted by his team his season, after averaging 18
turnovers per game during his first campaign at the
helm last year. His efforts should be helped considerably by the return of senior multiple letter winners
Alex Kiess, who totaled 10 points, 6.5 rebounds,
3.8 assists and ,2.5 steals per game, and Kaitlin
Chrisman, who put up 7.5 points, 3.5 rebounds,
1.8 assists, and 1.3 steals per game. Junior Kaitlyn Sonneberger, with an average of 5.1 points,
4.9 rebounds, and 2.6 steals per game, also has
multiple letters. Edon will also look to take advantage of post playing sophomore Hannah Kaylors
experience from last year, where she was forced
into action as a freshman. Lacking size, the Lady
Bombers will have to rely on speed and disruptive
play to thrive on the court. Coach Gallehue sees
the BBC as a two team race, naming Pettisville and
Fayette as the two favorites to win the league title.

COACHS CORNER
Sam Boehnlein takes over at the helm of a Hilltop Cadet squad that dealt with
a lot of frustrations last year. He inherits a team with an explosive offense that
could have won more games than they did during the 2013-14 season, had their
defense been able to be equally as potent. Coach Boenlein said, We have five
quality seniors that I think will contribute. We have three returning sophomore
letterwinners that will contribute. Were going to play a fast pace; were going to
get up and down the court. Were going to play strong defense, and hope to be
competitive in the league.

Hilltop Head Coach Aaron Schmidt begins the 2014-15 campaign looking
at a major rebuild over the 2013-14 team that saw the departure of Hannah
Bleikamp, LeAnn Joost, Kailey Creamer, Emily Armbruster, and Kayla Settlemire. With only one senior on the staff, Coach Schmidt said, Its not a secret; we have a young team. We graduated five seniors... four being starters.
I think that our girls have done a great job of practicing hard and filling different roles. Were going to count on a lot of people doing different things for
us. For us to be successful, were going to have to play hard for four quarters,
and share the ball. Theyre going to play for us... More importantly, theyre
going to play for each other.

Taylor Meuhlfeld, Head Coach of the Montpelier


Locomotives Boys Basketball Team, will have
the most experience he has had since first taking the helm of the program three years ago. Ten
players with significant varsity experience will
be returning to the Locos squad this season, including seven seniors that have been playing at
that level of competition since their sophomore
season. Not only that, but there are also some
players making the jump from a successful junior varsity team that have the potential to contribute to Montpeliers efforts on the court, such
as Max Hulbert, Andrew Luke, and Gunnar Matson. The team will be led, however, by multiple
year lettermen Cody Caudill, Nate McCord, Jake
Lueng, and Alex Matzinger. With an abundance
of size, length, athleticism, and depth, the Locomotives should easily erase the memory of their
2-20 season from last year.

In year two of the Tim Nicely era, the Montpelier


Girls Basketball Team finds itself in a significantly better position than they were a year ago. The
dividends of playing so many young players last
season looks as though it is about to pay off for
the Lady Locomotives, as they return an astounding eight letter winners, including all five starters
from a squad that finished 7-16 last year. Look for
that record to improve drastically if the Locos can
be more competitive in NWOAL play, where they
were just 1-7 in that same span. The key will be
finding scorers other than senior Baylee Hageman,
who averaged 12.2 points to along with her 7.3 rebounds a game, and Hannah Blake, who led the
unit in scoring as a sophomore with 16 points per
game, also averaging 7.3 rebounds and 2 steals on
the season. Perhaps the return of Haley Suffel, a
junior who spent most of last season injured, can
help to build momentum for the Locomotives. Nicely
predicts that Archbold and Wauseon will be battling for league supremacy in the NWOAL.

Head Coach Chris Fidler inherits a team


that lost a lot of experience as he makes
the jump from Assistant Coach to take the
helm of the North Central Boys Basketball
Team. Losing multiple letter winners like
Clayton Ferguson, Dylan Hutchison, and
Brandon Turner, the 2014-15 version of
the Eagles squad will rely heavily upon seniors Jordan Bailey, Jordan Reeves, and
Josh Sawyer to guide them through the
season. Another senior, Brady Zuver, will
join the team this year, and figures to factor in at guard. A trio of sophomores in Josh
Roesener, Kaleb Geiser, and Steven Williams will also see time at the varsity level.
With only eight players on the team, depth
will be working against North Central just
as much as inexperience, though they hope
to counter these deficiencies with the exceptional balance of talent on their roster.
Coach Fidler has pegged Fayette as the
early favorite in the BBC.

COACHS CORNER
In his first year taking over the program from former Head Coach Steve Bowling, former Assistant Coach Corey Kreinbrink enters his first year as
Coach of the North Central Girls Basketball Team. While the squad loses three year letter winners Hannah Siekemeyer and Abbey Litzenberg,
they do return five players with significant varsity experience, including another three year letter winner in Sabrina Pickford, who averaged 8.2
points and 5.8 rebounds per game to earn Second Team BBC Honors, and Makayla Hayes, a 5'10" sophomore that put up 2.6 points and 1.8
rebounds per game as a freshman. Along with seniors Rachel Oxender and Julia Rhinard, as well as junior Cady VanDeVoorde, the Lady Eagles
will have a strong nucleus from which to build their team. However, they will have to count on newcomers such as Aleea Lonabarger, Alyssa
Swank, and Charlie Baker for depth if they are to have a successful season this year. Coach Kreinbrink believes Pettisville and Fayette are the
teams to watch out for in the BBC for the 2014-2015 season.

Bringing back only three letter winners who played


considerable minutes of varsity time on last years
BBC Co-Championship team, Head Coach Greg
Nofziger will have to find a way to replace half of his
units scoring production if the Pettisville Blackbirds
Boys Basketball Team hopes to match or surpass its
8-2 conference mark from last season. Indeed, losing the trio of Korben Rychener, Austin Dykstra, and
Jeremy Mann to graduation, the squad will be dependent upon seniors Tate Kauffman, averaging 7.2
points per game last year, Eli King, adding 5.2 points
and 4.2 rebounds per game, and Josh Liechty, who
contributed 3.6 points per game, to lead them on the
court. Tempo will be an important factor in Pettisville
games this season, as the Blackbirds will try to use
their quickness to dictate a fast pace both, offensively
and defensively, to their opponents. Coach Nofziger
sees the BBC as a league of parity, predicting that it
will be a tight race to a league championship.

Lets Go

GIRLS BASKETBALL LETTER WINNERS ... Kate Kauffman, Amber Sauder, Dana
Fricke, Jordyn Pursel, Mikala Avina.

COACHS CORNER
An elder statesman of the BBC, Head Coach Jason Waldvogel will once again be looking for his
Pettisville Girls Basketball Team to be competing
for the top spot in the league. Losing only three
letter winners in Lauren Hostetler, Olivia Wright,
and Audra Kolpfenstein from a team that finished
last season with a 21-3 record, expectations are
high for the Lady Blackbirds. Senior Dana Fricke,
averaging 15.3 points and 5 rebounds per game
last year, leads five returning players who contributed significantly during the 2013-14 season.
Fellow senior Mikala Avina brings back her own
10.8 points and 4.8 assists, while Jordyn Pursel
comes back after putting up 6.2 points per game.
Depth may be an issue, however, as Pettisville will
have to rely on newcomers like Andi Aeschliman
and Alexa Leppelemeier to rest their starters. The
squad should be solid shooting the ball, and will
play aggressively on defense. Predicting the BBC
to be balanced this year, Coach Waldvogel thinks
Fayette may stand out as a factor in the league.

JV GIRLS BASKETBALL ... Front Row: Manager Addison Moyer, Manager Karsyn Hostetler, Manager Karsen
