Basketball season is upon us

The annual Chelan Goat Basketball Jamboree opened the 2009/2010 basketball season. Participating teams included both the boys and girls varsity teams from Entiat and Pateros.


The Lady Goats faced off with the Entiat Lady Tigers in their first 10 minute scrimmage game of the evening which they won 18-10. The Goats brought last year's defensive pressure game to the floor and also played very aggressively on the offense. Kelli Bowers seems to have zeroed back on the three point shot. leading the Goats with 7 points in this game. Jaicee Harris had 6. Houston Robison continued her reputation of being a tough contender under the basket, pulling down several rebounds and scoring 2 points. Newcomer to the varsity squad, freshman Courtney Dietrich scored 2 points. Darcy Austin had one from the free throw line and brings the ball down court well.


In the second game against Pateros, Chelan came out with a 23-15 win. Pateros and Entiat both look strong for their respective leagues this year and Chelan should contend for a top spot in the CTL.


The Goats took on the Entiat Tigers in game one defeating them 13-6 and then beat Pateros 16-10 in the final game of the night.


Coach Joe Harris was without his full team since the football season ran late. Basketball players who played football have to turn out for five practice sessions before being allowed to play in a game. "They will be ready by next Tuesday," said Harris. The team hosts the Ephrata Tigers in non-league action after the Lady Goats 6 p.m. game against Ephrata.


The Chelan Goats should offer up one of the most exciting basketball seasons since the 1999 State Championship run with Phil Cullen. This year's team should be as good if not better than that team was.


Joey Harris will be out front again bring the ball down and guiding the action. Matt Engstrom will be roughing it under the basket, and if the jamboree is any indication, he will have a major impact on Chelan's game again. Josh Burbery, Brooks Gatzemeier, Alex Brown and a host of juniors and sophomores will help.


Add into the mix Aaron McQuaid who has grown several inches since last year and proved he has great hands on the football field, Evan Reister, whom Harris said won't be able to practice for several more weeks, Michael Amsel, Jr., another point guard, Robin Weathersbey and several others from the football team and the Chelan Goats will be a team to contend with.
