Tigers Look to Reload

Posted on November 12, 2014 by


The Fleetwood High School’s Boys’ basketball team is back for another season. They are returning a bunch of starters and key players from last year’s team.

The team finished last season 13-8 (6-4 league) and looks to have another good season. Among returning players are sophomore Justin Hummel and seniors Matt Hook, Jared Reaser, Gabe Kotch, Mitch Kinek, Joe Kinek, and Tyler Nolt.

”I’m excited for this upcoming season. I think we should be pretty good,” Hook said.

They have a lot of holes to fill, though, as they lost some key players, including Brian Schumacher, Kyle Flannery, and Clay Weidemoyer to graduation.

Schumaker, Weidemoyer, and Flannery were the team’s leading scorers last season, and the team is going to need some returning players to take their place.

“They’re not going to be easy to replace, but I think we should be able to spread the ball around this year,” senior Mitch Kinek said.

The Tigers will have to reload indeed, but, according to their roster, they have a lot of talent returning.

“I’m excited for this year,” senior Joe Kinek said.

“I can’t wait to get back on the court,” senior Tyler Nolt said.

It is the last chance for the seniors this year to make a push for the Berks II championship, so Fleetwood will just have to wait and see if they can do it.
