BOYS 

Coach: Ryan Wakley

18-19 Record: 8-17

Coach Ryan Wakley returns the nucleus of last years team and with another year of experience under their belts, the Conquerors are looking to hit double digits in wins this season. Trajan Turk (5-11, Sr.) leads the way for Victory after averaging 12 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game last season. Guard/forward Gabe Calhoon (6-3, Jr.) will add some length to the backcourt. Calhoon averaged 3.6 points and 2.1 rebounds a year ago. Dre Rodriguez (6-2, So.) is a young, exciting player looking to make his mark. Dwayne Grundy (6-2, Jr.) and Luke Patton (6-5, So.) may round out what could be the starting five. Also look for Braydon Johnson (5-11, So.) to see time in the backcourt this season. A pair of sophomores look impressive coming into the season as Josh Udomouh (6-0) and Jude Malhi (6-0) bring depth to the lineup. Seniors Kyle Pitman (6-1) and Luke Doran (6-3) look to come off the bench and give the team some quality minutes. Michael Buckley (6-5, So.) is a big inside player with tremendous potential. Ed Calhoon joins the coaching staff that also features Ted Davis and James Doctor. 

GIRLS 

Coach: Ryan Wakley

18-19 Record: 23-5 

Twenty-two years of coaching at Victory has taught Ryan Wakley a lot about the game. One lesson that never goes unnoticed is having a team full of seniors is better than not. Ruth Udomouh (6-0, Sr.) is the main scorer in the offense. Last season she averaged 13.3 points with 7.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists per contest. She is also a VYPE Top 100 nominee. Power forward Jaxie Wakley (6-1, Sr.) is another go-to player in the offense and she can crash the boards. Wakley averaged 3.0 points with 7.2 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 2.0 blocks a game as a junior. Rachel Carlis (5-7, Sr.) will start at point guard where she averaged 5.4 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.7 assists last season. Nicole Younger (5-6, Sr.) and Jessa Gilyard (5-9, So.) round out the starting five, but look for Bella Wakley (5-8, So.) to see time at guard. Wakley went for 5.3 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.5 assists as a freshman. Tessa Edwards (5-2, So.), Jada Branan (5-4, So.) and Harper Case (5-3, So.) add depth and give coach Wakley options coming off the bench. “Looking forward to a great year. This team has a chance to be very good,” said coach Wakley.
