Team breakdown

After a slow and methodical offense yielded little success the last few seasons, LaCrosse looks to run this campaign — on both sides of the ball. “The biggest outlook for this year is going to be our speed and our movement,” coach Scot Spoljaric said. “In the past few years, we’ve been kind of a slow-paced team who pounds it in. One thing we want to do this year is have a very hectic defense that can be an intimidating presence. Offensively, we’re going to have a lot better ball movement than we’ve had in the past and spread it throughout the team.” Senior guard Bryce Guse will be looked to as a leader while a young duo of Jared Spoljaric and Zach Brown are expected to set the tone down low, but this season and in the future.  — Michael Raines

Last season finish

Lost in Class A Kouts Sectional semifinal to Washington Township.

Leading returning scorer

Star power

Bryce Guse, Sr., G: A talented shooter, Guse worked hard in the weight room over the summer. With added strength, he’ll be able to create his own shot this season.

Newcomers to watch

Jared Spoljaric, So., F; Zach Brown, So., C: Smart athletes and big for their grade, first-year varsity players Spoljaric and Brown will be a frontcourt threat this season and in the future.
