(AUDIO) Logan View/Scribner-Snyder Boys and Girls Basketball Teams looking for big seasons

Team: Logan View/Scribner-Snyder

Mascot: Raiders

Colors: Blue and Red

Class: C-1

Conference: East Husker

Head Coach: Sean Forbes (4th season) (37-33 career record)

2016-2017 record: 18-6 (Lost to Winnebago in Sub-District Final)

Returning Starters: 5

The Logan View/Scribner-Snyder Boys Basketball Team returns all 5 starters from last year’s 18-6 team. Head Coach Sean Forbes says the Raiders’ talent stretches beyond the starting five.

“Jake Polk (6’0, SR PG), Ben Moxness (6’5, SR F), Alex VonSeggern (6’5, SR F), Alex Hagerbaumer 6’3, SR SG), Nathan Taylor (6’0, SR SG/PG). They had a great year last year. I think we’ll be a lot deeper this year. We’ve got Nathan Wacker (6’1, JR PG/SG), and Austin Peters, and Clay Kruger, plus Conner Larson, plus Joel Moeller. We got about 12 guys battling for that top 9 spots. So we’re super excited how practice is going so far.”

Logan View/Scribner-Snyder figures to be very good this year. Forbes says his kids are well rounded student athletes who put the time in over the summer.

“Our guys put in a ton of time. Anytime the gym’s open we’ll have anywhere from 16-20 guys that voluntarily come in and work out. Summer Leagues went good. It’s a busy summer. With our 8 seniors they’re high academically. They’re involved in FFA and Band and all sorts of stuff. So they’re busy with that too. But basketball they put in a lot of extra time, and the leagues went well. So we’re just trying to continue to build on what we have been the last three years.”

The Raiders are seeking their first ever state tournament appearance this season.

Forbes says the road to Lincoln will be anything but easy.

“Sub-District with West Point-Beemer and Arlington. They’re going to both be very good. A lot of experience. Fort Calhoun and Tekamah. So whoever comes out of that has to face opposite of sub of Wahoo, Wahoo Neumann, and Boys Town plus a couple other teams. So there could be, in our two sub-districts, I really believe it, there could be 5, 6 teams rated.”

The Raiders open up the season at Oakland-Craig on November 30th.

Team: Logan View/Scribner-Snyder

Mascot: Raiders

Colors: Blue and Red

Class: C-1

Conference: East Husker

Head Coach: Nick Hegge (7th season) (16-116 career record)

2016-2017 record: 6-16 (Lost to Tekamah-Herman in Sub-Districts)

Returning Starters: 4

The Logan View/Scribner-Snyder Girls Basketball Team returns 4 starters from last year’s 6-16 team.  Head Coach Nick Hegge says the Raiders have 5 seniors out for the team this year.

“We have Kaylee Boyle, who was kind of our leading scorer the last couple years, has carried the load for us on offense, and is an excellent defender as well. We have Sierra Beacom, who has been our point guard for the last couple of years. Does an excellent job taking care of the basketball and getting us into our offense. We have Morgan Morgan, who is an athletic wing player. Has really worked hard on her game over the summer, and she’s improved her jump shot. So we look forward to seeing what Morgan can do for us this year. Abby Kahlandt is another athletic wing type player who is a good shooter and takes care of the ball. She’s a little banged up right now, but hopefully we’ll be getting Abby back to practice here in a week or so. And then we have Breanna Smith, who is a center, and who provides us a lot of experience, and is a good passer. And we’re going to need her to really rebound.”

Juniors include Ashley Peters, Ashley Uhing, Shaylin Daugherty, and Kaylin Niewohner.

The Raiders lost one senior from last year in Mackenzy Schreck.

Hegge hopes having a lot of girls out for the team leads to big things.

“We have a lot of experience and are returning seven letterwinners. We should have depth at all positions and are hoping to be a much more competitive team in the conference. 4 of our 5 starters return including Kaylee Boyle who is one of the top players in the area.

Logan View/Scribner-Snyder opens up the season on November 30th at Oakland-Craig.

Hegge says the Knights will be tough even without Dacey Nelson.

“It is too bad that Dacey was down with an injury. She’s a really quality player, and you hate when they get hurt, but we know that they’re still going to be a really tough team. They got a lot of kids who can play. First game of the year where you know each team’s going to give their best effort. And we’re really looking forward to it. We got a lot of work to do from here today until that first game, but it should be fun.”

Oakland-Craig won last year’s contest 68-43.
