Kamiakin Braves team preview

Posted: Updated:
KENNEWICK, Wash. - The Braves defense dominated the CBL the last two years, at one point recording thirteen straight shutouts. Their two-year record in league play is 12-0. Last year they made it to the second round of the state playoffs before losing to Southridge.
However, the majority of the defenders, including playmaker Max Garrett have graduated, leaving them a bit undersized.
"Our defense is gonna have a problem with size," said coach Craig Beverlin. "We're very fast, it's just a mater of if we can handle the teams that have power. Our offense, I think, is gonna be much more diversified, more explosive."
Beverlin declined to say who his playmakers would be this fall.
"We don't know," he said. "We got a lot of good kids. We're very young. We don't have as many seniors. We have a school record turnout but the lowest seniors we've ever had."
Expectations are still as high as ever for the defending league champs.
"We expect to win every game," he said.
Kamiakin opens the season against Kennewick on September 5th at Lampson Stadium.
