The girls basketball team is led by head coach Trevor Keller who has coached basketball at Wabaunsee for the past two years.
“The program has been to state the past three years and I think that we want to continue that tradition. When I took the job there was a tradition of success at Wabaunsee and I wanted to help continue that,” Keller said.
Wabaunsee will have some challenges to overcome this year though, one of the biggest being their low number of players. Currently there are twelve players on the roster for the team and one of those, senior Madisyn Havenstein, is injured.
“If anyone is sick or hurt it makes it difficult in practice so that’s definitely been a challenge but we have been making adjustments to our practice schedule. A positive though is that everybody is getting to do a lot of reps so they are learning a lot,” Keller said.
Seven of the twelve players on the roster are returning players.
“We’re going to have to play smart. We can’t have players fouling out because we don’t have enough other people to go in for them. Also wear your ankle braces so you don’t get hurt,” senior Kara Hafenstine said.
The team opens the season Friday at Axtell High School.
