The Riverside High School basketball team is looking forward to making significant progress as they prepare to start a new high school basketball season.
The third stop on our WyoPreps pre-season basketball tour took us to Basin to visit David Settle with the players and coaches on both Riverside shows.
The Rebels girls won 7-9 last season and tied for third place with a score of 1-5. They did not qualify for the 2A State Basketball Tournament. There are roster changes, as well as a head coach change, with Jason Mitchell stepping in to take over.
Seniors Pralin Koczyk and Dalin Zierolf, rookie Caroline Schlatman, as well as new coach Mitchell took time to talk with WyoPreps about preparing for the season, adapting to a new coach and new philosophy, and much more.
The Riverside boys went 3-16 last season and were winless in six attempts in their four-way games in the Conference. They are looking forward to another year of growth within coach William Walker’s system.
WyoPreps spoke with young Dylan Alexander and seniors Garrett Ellis Rudd and Ryan Hoyt, as well as coach Walker about the upcoming season. The boys discussed higher numbers on the show, focus in practice, and more. Coach and Walker feel the experience they are back in, and expectations are higher. The team has goals of getting more shots than the opponent and rebounding well.
Riverside opens the 2021-22 season at the Bobcat Invitational in Upton. The Rebels will play Upton, Sundance and Howlett in their three games over two days on Friday and Saturday December 10-11, 2021.
