The Wisner-Pilger Boys Basketball Team looks to continue their winning ways this year despite losing a number of kids from last year’s team. 2nd year Head Coach Brad Cornell talks about the makeup of this year’s team.

Wisner-Pilger lost Kyle Rehak, Jack Knust, Hunter Palmer, Owen Heller, Reece Dimon, and August Scholting from last year’s team.

I think the Gators have a chance to be very good once again this year.

Coach Cornell says the offseason went really well, and that’s a really good and promising sign for Wisner-Pilger.

Season Outlook:

Wisner-Pilger looks to continue their winning ways this season. Coach Cornell has this preseason assessment/season outlook.

I look for the Gators to build off of what they did last year and have a good season this year.

Wisner-Pilger is in Sub-District C2-7 with Pender, Tri County Northeast, Ponca, and Omaha Nation. Coach Cornell says it’s a good draw.

The Gators host Lutheran High Northeast in the season opener on Thursday. Coach Cornell says it should be a good game.

Looking at Wisner-Pilger’s schedule….there are some tough contests on it, but the Gators should compete well in those games and win a lot of games once again this year.

I look for Wisner-Pilger to retool and reload this year, and continue the success that last year’s team had.
