Spartans Look For Continued Success
The Spartans had ended the 2014-15 season one of the most successful regular seasons in almost 20 years having finished 21-9 and being nationally ranked in the top 25 and as high as #20 for 3 consecutive weeks. On the final night of the regular season they were also playing for a piece of the conference title. No doubt that these Spartans had come a long
The Spartans return 2 players from last year’s squad that were part time starters in Jacob Siewert (Streamwood High) and Tre’ Kinlow (Nicolet High). Both gained valuable experience at multiple spots with Kinlow averaging just over 9 points per game
in conference play. They will both play guard this year.
Also returning from last year are Brett Rau (Burlington Central High), Chris Mahoney (Crystal Lake South High), and Max Escamilla (Morristown High). Each played behind an all-conference player last year but all saw over 12 minutes per game. Rau showed his ability late in the year as a
slasher and defensive gem while Mahoney became the knock down 3 point shooter off the bench. Escamilla gave the Spartans minutes in the paint and plays with a great deal of effort.
The Spartans also welcome back Ryne Lundy (South Elgin High) who played during the 2013-14 season. Ryne was a part time starter that season and has added muscle during his year off. Ryne averaged just over 5 points and 4 rebounds per game during that season. “He definitely brings some enthusiasm and
effort to the court each night,” added Nosbisch.
The incoming recruiting class appears to be just as good as the list of sophomores. Included in the freshmen class is Juwan Stewart (Larkin High), Isiah Smith (Champaign Central High) Jake Clodi (St. Charles East High), Connor Boesch (Huntley High), Andrew
Kazikowski (Union Grove High), Stephen Moyer (Geneva High), Nico Bennett (Hampshire High) and Jordan Anderson (Bartlett High).
