Reynolds Raiders
Boys
Coach (season): Dan Kilgore (1st season)
2010-11 overall record: 12-11
2010-11 region record (place): 6-4 (third)
2010-11 playoff results: Lost 68-47 to North East in the District 10 Class AA quarterfinals.
Top players lost: Brandon Weaver, Justin Wolfe, Tony Patterson, Shayne Reimold, Sam Geigel
Top returning players: Caleb Peters, Tanner Greenfield
Assistant coaches: Seth Little, Sean Vaneman, Bob Glass
Outlook: Reynolds could struggle this season after losing most of its varsity rotation from last year. The Raiders used a six-man rotation with Brandon Weaver, Justin Wolfe, Tony Patterson, Shayne Reimold and Sam Geigel have graduated. Caleb Peters is the only returning player with varsity experience but can be a leader. Tanner Greenfield is a fellow senior but lost the past two seasons to knee injuries. He is primed for a big season after working his way into significant playing time last year in camp before suffering a knee injury. The Raiders could get big seasons from several new players. Tevin Jones, a 6-foot 6-inch forward, was impressive for the junior varsity last year, while Kyle and Cory Woods could be big-time contributors. Paul Torok, Ethan Rodemoyer, Matt Davenport and Garhett Frable could see playing time as well. First-year coach Dan Kilgore understands that expectations could be low this year but they aren’t low among the Raiders. Kilgore expects his team to work hard and have a successful season. He got to know the team the last four years as an assistant and could have a smooth transition into the head coaching position.

2010-11 region record (place): 5-7 (fifth)
2010-11 playoff results: Did not qualify for the District 10 Class AA playoffs.
Top players lost: Jill Siege, Lindsey Gruber, Hope Stegkamper, Kristen McDonald
Top returning players: Jocelyn Yahner, Maggie Ringer, Kristina Bertocchi
Assistant coach: Michelle Kilgore
Outlook: Reynolds could go through some growing pains with the graduation of four starters. Jill Siege, Lindsey Gruber, Hope Stegkamper and Kristen McDonald have graduated, leaving some big holes for the Raiders. Senior Jocelyn Yahner is the only returning starter and a solid outside shooter. Maggie Ringer, a junior, was the second-leading rebounder last year, while senior Kristina Bertocchi is a good team leader. Erica Burnworth and Morgan McDanel are new to the varsity team and could be big-time contributors this winter. Reynolds worked hard in the offseason with several camps and tournaments and could be a surprise team in Region 2.
