The Roadrunners are looking forward to a strong season in 2013-2014 with a veteran tested returning core and a talented group of freshmen. Their non-conference schedule hopefully will serve as the “bridge of preparedness” for the always tough competition in the Golden Valley Conference. This year the Roadrunners will participate in six strong tournament fields commencing with the Las Positas Tourney in early November and ending with the College of the Siskiyous Classic in late December. The Roadrunners then open Golden Valley Conference play at home against defending champions Lassen College on Wednesday, January 8th.

Returning for the Runners are five vastly improved players who will be counted upon to provide solid contributions to the team. Led by front-liners Michael Oloya (6’5”), and Justin Gavard (6’5”), each should establish a much needed inside presence. In the back-court are Jamaal Davis (6’0”), a part-time starter last season, Nathaniel Hurd (5’9”), and Chris Downs (5’9”). They are talented, clever, exciting and improved players who will definitely see the court. Additional returners playing in their first season are two outstanding red-shirts at the wing position. Making their debut for the Roadrunners in the 2013-2014 are local products Will Sevdy (6’4”) and Dominic Parisi (6’3”), two very versatile players with a great deal of potential.

The incoming freshman class is very talented and will provide some much needed depth to the Roadrunners personnel. Led by sharpshooting guard Jud Sailsbery (“6’0”) out of Orland High School, and talented swingman Arthur Caldwell (6’5”) out of Salinas High School, the Runners have landed two very outstanding young players. Each will be counted upon to significantly help the Roadrunners this year. Rounding out this talented freshmen class are some outstanding guards led by Nikolas Petruk (6’4”), a very clever and exciting player out of Brazil. Marcus Booker (5’10”), combo-guard and a jet out of Mount Miguel High School in Spring Valley, and Kyler Joaquin (6’2”), an off guard out of Rio Americano High School in Sacramento. Up front the Runners have a surprise addition in Conner Morningstar (6’8”), a versatile post man out of Summerville High School in Tuolumne.

We hope you get an opportunity to see these kids play and will support their efforts to win a Golden Valley Conference championship in 2013-2014!
