(AUDIO) Stanton Boys and Girls to field young teams this year

Team: Stanton

Mascot: Mustangs

Colors: Orange and Black

Class: C-2

Conference: East Husker

Head Coach: David Stoddard (2nd season)

2018-2019 record: 6-17 (lost to Wisner-Pilger in Sub Districts)

Returning Starters: 2

Overview:

The Stanton Boys Basketball Team returns two starters from last year’s 6-17 team in T.J. Larson (6’1, SR G), who averaged 10 points a game a season ago, and Parker Krusemark (6’3, SO G).

Other returning letterwinners include Mason Bruggeman (6’3, JR F), Ben Wilke (6’0, SR F), Brennan Wragge (5’5, JR G), and Adam Arens (5’9, SO G).

Newcomers likely to contribute include Abe Larson (5’10, SO), Ben Butterfield (5’10, SO), and Ian Schulzkump (6’3, JR).

Head Coach David Stoddard has this preseason assessment of his team. “Stanton returns 2 starters & will feature a young overall team in the 2019-2020 season. The Mustangs will be lead in the back court by TJ Larson and Parker Krusemark who do a good job scoring and creating for their teammates. Mason Bruggeman will be in the post with Ben Wilke and look for Abe Larson, Ben Butterfield, Adam Arens, and Brennan Wragge to play significant roles as well. ”

Stanton lost Marcus Spotanski, Sam Bates, and Nathan Arens to graduation last year.

Stoddard says the offseason went really well. “We had great attendance all summer long. We did summer league up at the YMCA in Norfolk. That was a good experience for us. Did some of the team camp circuit things.”

Season Outlook:

The Stanton Boys look to grow and get better throughout the year this year.

Stanton hosts 2019 C-2 State Qualifier Howells-Dodge in the season opener on Friday.

Stoddard says the Jaguars are the real deal. “Very well Coached team. They have quite a bit returning I think in the backcourt. They’re going to be a team that’s going to pressure you full court throughout the game, kind of try to create some turnovers. They’re very active on the offensive end. It’s going to be a very tough game.”

The Mustangs are in Sub-District C2-5 with Wisner-Pilger, Lutheran High Northeast, Hartington Cedar Catholic, and Crofton.

Stoddard says all of those teams are good. “Yeah Wisner-Pilger and Lutheran High once again just great programs. They’re going to be tough. I know each team returns quite a bit from the starting department. Crofton is new this year. I think they had a pretty young team last year and returned a lot. Then Hartington Cedar Catholic I know is going to be once again a very good team too.”

Team: Stanton

Mascot: Mustangs

Colors: Orange and Black

Class: C-2

Conference: East Husker

Head Coach: Greg Wegner (5th season) (75-28 record)

2018-2019 record: 13-10 (lost to Battle Creek in Sub-Districts)

Returning Starters: N/A

Overview:

A young team figures to see the floor for the Stanton Girls this year as the Mustangs return just three players who played last year.

The returners include Sophomore Savannah Siebrandt, Senior Jasmine Kment, and 6’0 Sophomore Sylvia Cunningham.

Seniors Morgan and Marissa Remm along with 5’5 newcomer Emma Hansen, who was homeschooled previously, make up Stanton’s senior class.

Other players likely to contribute are 5’9 Sophomore Kinley Pohlman, 5’9 freshman Olivia Cunningham, and Junior Ellie Locke.

5th Year Head Coach Greg Wegner says the team did a lot of offseason activities in house, meaning they didn’t go many places.

Season Outlook:

The Stanton Girls hope to grow and improve throughout the season.

Wegner says this season is road heavy with just 7 home games this year.

He adds the Conference is loaded once again as well.

Stanton hosts Howells-Dodge in the season opener on Friday.

Wegner says the Jaguars are solid. “Howells is always tough. They’re very fundamental. They’re well coached. They play defense very, very hard.”

Wegner says he’s more concerned with his team trying to grow, trying to develop, trying to get rid of those mental errors.

The Mustangs are in Sub-District C2-5 with the Jaguars, Clarkson/Leigh, Lutheran High Northeast, and Madison.

Wegner says the Patriots aren’t a good matchup for his team. “Clarkson always plays good defense, they’re tough. They’re one of those teams that scout us really well. They know us. And it doesn’t help that we play them a week before Sub-Districts. The weekend before Sub-Districts anyways.”
