Head coach: Kevin Santiago
2017-18 record: 8-2 in 5A Region 7, 16-8 overall
Playoffs: Lost to Skyline, 67-63, in 5A first round
Players to Watch: Nate Hansen (Sr. G), Alrek Greenhalgh (Sr. G), Kelson Jensen (Sr. F)
Outlook: The Thunderbirds come into this season looking to excel in the regular season but also to improve in the postseason, even though they have limited experience.
“We’ve got a great group with five seniors and the rest being sophomores and freshmen,” head coach Kevin Santiago said. “We’re going to rely on some young guys but they’ve shown they can come out and play ball. They are skilled enough to develop over the year.”
He believes the key for Timpview this year will be to execute on offense and move the ball, as well as playing team defense and getting after the boards.
