The Sailor boys basketball program, headed up for the 20th year by Coach Kurt Habermehl, is expecting big things from the 2018-19 season. They open the season with the Annual Vermilion Athletic Booster Club Tipoff Tournament this weekend, playing host to Oberlin High School, Bay High School and SPIRE Institute.
The team returns 10 seniors, including 5 letterwinners, from a 20 win squad last season who made an earlier exit from the state tournament than they had hoped. That bitter taste has driven the team to work even harder leading up to this season. They’ve stacked the schedule with rugged competition this year in order to prepare for a tough road in their district, which is one of the most talented in the state.
Riley Schnieders, Cheer Captain and School Leader as part of our VIA Social Media team, caught up with the seniors at media day and asked them about their expectations for the year.
