Wheatland boys basketball is seeking a second straight district title with leading scorer Davin Sawyer returning.
Sawyer, a first-team all-conference and all-district selection, poured in 17.2 points per game with 5.7 rebounds, 2.4 steals and 1.7 assists in leading Wheatland to an 18-11 record and district championship.
Wheatland head coach Brian Pearson described Sawyer as “high level character, hard worker, willing to put extra time in to help his team be successful”.
Fellow senior Owen Kenig and junior Dan Murphy will also be leaders for Wheatland. Kenig saw action in 17 games last season. Murphy scored 4.5 points per game with 5 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.4 steals.
Sophomores Andrew Murphy, Tucker Shaddox, Braden Sawyer and Mathew Dalton along with junior Leeland Johnson return from last season. Murphy led that group with 5.3 points per game last season.
Seniors Bodee Fielder and Sam Stewart along with freshmen Nathan Sawyer and Daniel Jones will look to carve out roles on the varsity court.
“We should be solid defensively,” Pearson said. “We are working hard and are excited about the upcoming season.”
