2015-2016 PRE-SEASON OUTLOOK
The Roadrunner Cagers are gearing up for a run at a third consecutive Golden Valley Conference title and their 5th in the past 8 years! Finishing the 2014-15 season with an overall 18-9 mark and a 9-1 conference record the Runners made it into the state tournament again losing a hard fought contest on the road at Consumnes River College. Despite losing an outstanding group of sophomores optimism runs high for another stellar season in 2015-2016 as the Roadrunners have a strong returning core from their championship team and another outstanding incoming recruiting class.
Returning for the Roadrunners this year is a very capable group of players poised to defend their conference crown and get back to the always prestigious “California State Championships”. Heading this list of talented returners is Michael Shoemaker 6’7”, a sophomore and an all-conference player with versatile talent who will be heavily counted upon to lead the Roadrunners this season. Joining him are two skilled but inexperienced sophs who will each have a chance to contribute to the Roadrunners’ success this season. They are Cameron Moore, 6’7” talented forward with an offensive presence; and Bradey Brummel, a 6’0” defensive-minded off-guard who plays with grit and hustle. Joining these two returners are “red-shirts” Travis Stevens, a 6’5” talented sophomore offensive wing and Brandon Sheppard, a 6’7” freshman ” blue collar” player with a “do or die” attitude.
The Roadrunners recruited five outstanding talented and versatile players to bolster their chances for a “conference three –peat” this season and beyond. They are led by Jace Fry, a 6’2” dead-eye shooter out of Foothill High School in Redding. He is joined by very fundamentally sound 6’10” sophomore post transfer Vladimir Lazarevic out of Serbia and 6’0” “jet-like” superb point guard Danny Lewis, out of Marysville HighSchool. Rounding out this 2015-2016-recruiting class quintet are Andrew Whitsett, a 6’11” potentially very talented post player out of Hamilton High School, and Josiah Wood, a 6’5” multi-talented guard out of Galena High School in Reno, NV.
This season promises to be exciting and challenging and we invite all our fans to follow our quest towards another banner year and return to the California Community College State Championships and the opportunity to win a state title! You never know what could happen!
