Head coach: Mike Strong, 17th season
2014-15 record: 17-8 (8-2 IV Southern, third)
Returning lettermen (starters): Ten (four)
Top players: F Jacob Roemer (Sr.), F Shawn Wadsworth (Sr.), F Geoffrey Mortensen (Sr.), G Tabor Maxwell (Jr.), G Christian Higbee (Jr.), G Cody Williams (Jr.), G Tyson Jorgensen (Jr.), F Daved Wilson (Jr.), G Ike Taylor (Jr.), F Culen Highbe (So.)
Outlook: The Panthers won just eight games two seasons ago, but bounced back to earn a spot in the Division IV state title game last year. Ten players from that squad return and should make Pahranagat Valley among the favorites for this year’s crown.
“We took a big step last year from the previous year and hope to continue to improve,” said Strong.
