Saint Martin’s @ Evergreen – CRC Gymnasium – 7:30 PM

Oh yeah, the college hoops season tips off when Saint Martin’s and Evergreen play their annual games. Tonight, the games are out at Evergreen beginning with the women at 5:00 PM and continuing at 7:30 with the men.

Both of Evergreen’s teams are coached by new head coaches. The women are led by former Geoducks assistant coach Jennifer Schooler and her challenge is to keep her eight players fresh throughout the game. Injuries and ineligible players has left them shorthanded but still talented with forward Brittany Gray leading their returnees.

Meanwhile, the men are now coached by Tim Malroy, an Olympia native and previously the head coach at Green River Community College. The Geoducks have a couple of solid returnees in Frankie Johnson and Jordan Dam but will rely on a bevy of transfers to round out the roster and hopefully improve on three straight awful years in the CCC.

Meanwhile, in Lacey, the Saints women look to make the playoffs once again and return a solid squad led by senior Angela Gelhar. All-GNAC forward Chelsea Haskey graduated but the emergence of Megan Wiedeman last season tempers that loss and a lot will be expected of the junior forward this season.

On the men’s side, Michael Ostlund enters his second season as head coach and not much is expected out of his squad, at least in the pre-season GNAC poll where they finished tied for 9th. The Saints will likely play various small lineups again with returning guards Riley Carel, Ryan Rogers, Tyler Copp, Isaac Bianchini and Will Bond playing together in various combinations.
