Wellsboro Boys Basketball Preview 2016

The boys varsity team shares their outlook on upcoming season

 

by Ed Weaver - December 7, 2016

The 2016 boys basketball season starts this weekend, and the Hornets are ready to be back on the court.

Head Coach: Todd Outman (7th year, 120-31)
2015 Season Record: 17-9
Key Returners: Jake Singer, Alden Weiner, Brandon Lamphier, Dalton Prough, Quinn Henry
Player(s) to Watch: Collin Pietropola, Nic Ingerick, Andrew Brelo, Brandyn Tuttle

The Hornets are coming off back-to-back District IV runner-up seasons and bring back their entire Varsity team from the 2015 campaign, minus last year’s lone senior Dawson Prough. With many of this year’s team receiving valuable amounts of playing time as underclassmen the past two years, Wellsboro is primed for an NTL Large School Division and District IV championship run.

Returning this year are leading scorers Jake Singer and Dalton Prough, assist leader Quinn Henry, inside threat Alden Weiner, and Brandon Lamphier, who is finally healthy after playing all last season with a torn ACL. Prough, Singer, and Lamphier will see increased roles on offense until Henry returns from injury, along with Pietropola and Weiner on the low block. Also seeing time will be junior Nic Ingerick and sophomores Andrew Brelo, Brandyn Tuttle, Holden Kennedy, and Tanner Button. Ingerick and Brelo are deadly from behind the three-point line, and Tuttle will be a force to be reckoned with on the low block with Pietropola and Weiner.

The Hornets will have their work cut out for them with a tough non-league schedule to ready themselves for District play. Wellsboro opens the season in the Shamokin Tip-Off Tournament and faces Jersey Shore, Montoursville, Lewisburg, and St. John Neumann. In the NTL, the Hornets will be at the top of the class, and will contend for a division title with rival North Penn-Mansfield and Athens.

With more depth and experience this season, the Hornets will be able to finish games down the stretch, something they struggled with last season.
