Divers gear up for basketball season


The Lake Preston Divers boys' basketball team began practice Monday under the direction of head coach Brock Dufek and assistant coaches Jordan Solberg and Paydon Casper.

This will be Dufek’s first year as head coach. Last year, he coached junior varsity and junior high basketball. He teaches PE to grades PreK-9 and computers and technology to students in grades 1-9. Dufek will also be a co-coach for track next spring.

“I’m super excited,” Dufek said about the upcoming basketball season. “We don’t have a ton of experience. We only have one returning starter this year.”

This year’s team consists of two seniors, six juniors, four sophomores, three freshmen and two eighth graders.

The Divers play their first game at home Dec. 10 against Oldham-Ramona/Rutland. Their second game is also at home, Dec. 13 against Iroquois.
