Fall Fastbreak – Wilmington

Wilmington Greyhounds
Boys
Coach (season, record): Michael Jeckavitch (2nd season, 9-13)
2010-11 overall record: 9-13
2010-11 region record (place): 5-5 (fourth)
2010-11 playoff results: Did not qualify for the District 10 Class AA playoffs.
Top players lost: Darryl Pace, Curtis Bretz, Jason McFarland
Top returning players: Anthony Derrick, Vince Pitzulo, Matt Bowen, Josh Tekac, Ryan Crawford, Ryan Sager
Assistant coaches: Michael Zeigler, Curtis Nugent, Kyle Piper, Kevin Zona
Outlook: Wilmington is looking to get back to the postseason after a .500 record in region play last winter. The Greyhounds have to replace Darryl Pace, Curtis Bretz and Jason McFarland but they have a solid group back. Anthony Derrick, Vince Pitzulo, Matt Bowen, Josh Tekac, Ryan Crawford and Ryan Sager can be leaders for Wilmington and have plenty of experience. The ‘Hounds are usually in the hunt for the playoffs and region title and last year’s 9-13 season will be plenty of fuel for this year’s squad.
