Boys basketball team has good chemistry, says coach

Coach Ken Scheib has set some lofty goals for the 2008-2009 Ramona High School varsity boys basketball season.

“We will challenge for the Valley League title and we hope to get 20 wins,” he said. “The chemistry on this team is the best that we have had in years.”

The Valley League has a new look and the best part of the look is the absence of Escondido. Gone, too, are Mission Hills and San Pasqual.

Westview, Oceanside and Mt Carmel will be added to the league.

Scheib will be assisted by long time aide Jim Root, and he will also get help from Dan Marshall.

Only two seniors return from last season’s 8-19 team that went 4-8 in the Valley League. Guard Dodge McIntosh (5’11’’) is back for his third varsity campaign. McIntosh was an all Valley League guard last season.

Cameron Kolk (6’2’’) is back at center for his second campaign.

Senior Gabe Erivez (5’10’’) is on the squad and will play guard.

Five juniors are on the roster. Andrew Alcaraz (5’9’’) is back for his third year on the varsity. Last season, Alcaraz received honorable mention all Valley League at guard.

Keith Scheib (6’) lettered last season at guard. Tyler Jordan (6’1’’ forward), Josh Leiber (5’6’’ guard) and Zach Windes (5’10’’ guard) will be in their first year of varsity action.

Sophomores Jared Engler (6’ forward) and Sean Jennings (5’10’’ guard) are first-year varsity players.

Two freshmen are on the varsity roster: Garlan Marshall (6’ forward) and Kwade Miller (6’5’’ center).

Three prospects are finishing football: sophomores Bryson Garcia (6’5’’ forward) and Nathan Hunt (5’10’’ guard) and junior Quinton Wright (6’3’’ forward).

The Bulldogs open their season in the Red Devil Classic at Preuss UCSD on Dec. 3 and at home against Montgomery at 3:30 p.m. on Dec. 4.
