Keene Valley The Keene varsity boys and girls basketball teams return experience and height to the court for the start of the Northern Basketball League's Division III season. Team schedules can be found here.
Last year, the Keene varsity boys basketball team returned to the court after a three year hiatus.
In 2013, they will be participating in Division III of the new Northern Basketball League and will look to improve on the pair of wins they earned last season.
“The 2013-2014 Keene Boys Basketball team is looking to have a competitive season,” head coach Chad Lopez said. “Returning starters Colton Venner, Brandon Dumas, Austin Brown and team captain Gabe Warner will look to lead on the court. Justin Haverlick, Warren Ashe, and Matthew Holmes return to the floor for the Beavers. Additions of Jesse Summo, Josh Haberle, Dustin Hall, and Seungyeol Ko should give Keene added depth to the roster.”
The team returns junior All Valley selection Colton Venner (200 points in 2012-13) along with second leading scorer in senior Gabe Warner (140).
