It is time to move on to the winter sports of basketball and wrestling.
The boys’ varsity basketball team, being senior dominated last year, begins the season with nearly a whole new team with very few seniors.
“We are just going to be young and inexperienced. Our goal is to get better as the year goes on and hopefully have a shot in the end,” said Coach Bob Lenz. “For some of these kids their time is coming a year or two down the road.”
“We, as coaches, will coach the talent we have,” said Lenz. “We hope to build them up and try to put together another good run like we’ve had over the last five or six years.”
The new team has played several times over the summer and played very well together, according to Lenz. Melba will be looking at teams like Cole Valley, North Star, and Marsing as the strong teams to beat this year.
