Shawnee Wolves

BOYS 

Coach: Ron Arthur 

18-19 Record: 14-10 

Head coach Ron Arthur only returns two starters from last years 14-win team, but he is optimistic about what he does return. “This is the deepest team that I’ve had here at Shawnee,” said coach Arthur. “This also might be our most versatile team. We are looking forward to an exciting season.” J’Briell Easley (6-3, Sr.) brings a lot of energy to the court for the Wolves. Easley averaged 8.3 points and 3.8 rebounds a game last season. He will start at forward with Isaiah Willis (6-6, Jr.) starting at center. Willis averaged 6.5 points and 3.8 rebounds a year ago. Tanner Morris (6-1, So.) and Jaylon Orange (5-9, So.) are two exciting, but young guards coach Arthur will utilize this season. As freshmen the pair averaged 5.7 and 9.7 points respectively. Both can find the loose balls as well. Ka’Veon Sharp (6-0, Sr.) is another guard coach Arthur is excited to see contribute this season. Joe Maytubby (6-4, Jr.) brings size and the ability to grab 3.9 rebounds and score 3.9 points a night. Maytubby could see his production increase with more playing time. Other players to watch include Dahntay Graham (6-2, Jr.), Jeffery Hall (6-1, Jr.), Karran Evans (6-1, Jr.), Zane Christopher (6-1, Jr.), Moses Martinez (5-11, Sr.) and Ray McGirt (5-11, Jr.). The coaching staff will consist of Hutch Peterson, Don Murphy and Kent Hixson. 

GIRLS

Coach: Wendi Wells 

18-19 Record: 25-2 

The Lady Wolves have enjoyed a lot of success under 12-year head coach Wendi Wells. Wells is looking forward to another season at the helm, however she does need a few players to step up and take on leadership roles this season. “With only four players returning with varsity experience, we will be looking for older players to step up,” said coach Wells. Aubrie Megehee (5-7, Jr.) averaged 11.3 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.1 blocked shots per game last year. Her play is crucial for the overall success of the team, but she can’t do it alone. Look for Alesia Thomas (5-5, Jr.) and Alycia Edwards (5-7, Sr.) to play big roles as well. Both should see a significant increase in their point totals this season. Tatum Sparks (5-6, Jr.) averaged 2.4 points and grabbed 2.9 rebounds a year ago. Kaylee Henry (5-7, Jr.) knocked down 2.5 points and 3.0 rebounds last year. Esabella Ramirez (5-10, Fr.) is an exciting young player the coaching staff is looking forward to see mature and develop. Other players to watch include Kaylee Moore (5-5, Sr.), Kaitlyn Taylor (5-5, Jr.), Amaya Martinez (5-10, Fr.), Daineceyea Drennon (5-8, Jr.), Hallie Wilson (5-5, Jr.), Mary Whiteshirt (5-6, Jr.), Emerson Askew (Fr.), Lily Megehee (Fr.), Tatum Harjo (Jr.) and Aniya Elix.
