Basketball season is starting up at Wilsonville


Logan Thebiay goes up for a jump shot in a varsity game this past season.

Basketball season is starting at Wilsonville again with a true revival now that more COVID procedures have been lifted as the pandemic has dialed into a less dangerous position for the school. 

Wilsonville basketball’s official practices start with tryouts, which are on the 15th and 16th of November, and the first games and the official start of the OSAA season will be in January. 

Wilsonville looks to stay as kings and queens of the hill in the NWOC district, and is looking to adapt to fill in the spots of the graduated seniors and welcoming the incoming freshman. 

“I’m really excited for this upcoming season. I’m ready to play again after coming back from having a broken thumb and can’t wait to be able to get on the court again and play for real,” said sophomore Maddie Holly.

The team has been reviewing the previous year, reflecting on limitations in the season but mostly on how they can improve themselves as a team and make progress this year. 

The coaches talk about how they want to improve the speed of the team with conditioning and having the full team fold into counter attacking positions. 

Previous team members are giddy to get back into the new season and re-assert the dominance of Wilsonville, and, at the time of publication, we are only 23 days away from the start.
