SOUTHERN VALLEY WINTER SPORTS PREVIEW


Southern Valley Boys Hoops Looks to Breakout this Year


There's reason for optimism for the Southern Valley Boys Basketball program in 2022-2023. Head coach of the Eagles, Jimmy Sindelar gives us an outlook on his squad. "We return a solid core of guys who gained a ton of experience last season. The bulk of our scoring returns but we’ll need to find more consistency on the offensive side of the ball. We’ll need to improve our rebounding and ball security if we want consistent success. Our defense and depth I believe will be our strengths."


One of the top players in the conference will be junior Kamden Bose. During his sophomore campaign, he averaged 13 points, four rebounds and two assists per game while earning a First Team All-Conference East selection.


Southern Valley will start the year on Thursday, December 1st at home versus Elm Creek.


Southern Valley Girl's Basketball Returns Experience


Head coach of the Southern Valley Eagles, Richard McDonald appears to have a real solid group coming back for the 2022-2023 basketball season. "We are returning four starters off of last years team and 2 more letter winners. The group took a big step in the offseason of getting stronger and better at shooting. Our girls are looking forward to getting the season going," said McDonald.


One of those returning starters is one of the top players in the conference, Ann Bose. Bose averaged 18 points per game, eight rebounds, and five steals last season. Those numbers were good enough for a RPAC East First Team honor. Last year the Eagles went 14-9 and will look to build off of that record this season.

Eagle Wrestlers Look to have Late-Season Push


It's not often when you look at a team to begin the year, you are planning for the end of the season. That's not necessarily the case for the Southern Valley Eagle Wrestling team, but they have some circumstances that will make the season interesting to watch. Between injuries early on and some newcomers, later in the year may be when the Eagles make their mark. "We have some injuries coming into our season with a tough schedule this year. At the beginning of the season, I do not predict much noise from our squad. I believe we will make some ruckus late in the season when we get our team healthy and can perform at our best abilities. We are still a young team so I predict that our younger guys will come on this year late in the season," said Dexter Becker, head coach of the Southern Valley Wrestling program.


The Eagles will be led by 106-pound champion Braxton Hammond, Cole Broeker, a 6th place finisher in 138, and Mason Noel a 5th place finisher at 145.


Southern Valley will have a handful of girls wrestling for the first time this season too Esmeralda Aguayo, senior 110, Ashley Serfontein sophomore, 120, Gracie Chavez, sophomore, 130, Lilian Zetterburg, freshman, 145.


Southern Valley begins the year on Friday, December 2nd at the Ravenna Invite.
