Chieftains’ experience to carry them through
By Ginna Young The Lake Holcombe boys basketball team may be small on numbers, but is big on heart, as the squad looks to have a competitive season. The Chieftains finished second in the East Lakeland Conference last year. Coach Joy Webster will turn to returning letter winners Colton Minnick, Brock Flater and Kaden Crank to provide leadership. She also plans for seniors Riley Gingras, Brandon Nitek and Will Kliegle to bring basketball experience to the floor.
