2017-18 Lake Mead Boys Basketball Capsule


Head coach: Jeff Newton, 24th season

2016-17 record: 9-15 (5-11 Class 2A Southern, sixth)

Returning lettermen (starters): Six (four)

Top players: Mitchell Dolinar (Sr.), Ryan Kennedy (So.), Kai Madela (Sr.), Josh Thorell (Sr.)

Outlook: Madela (9.4 points per game) is the top returning scorer for the Eagles, and should get plenty of support from Thorell (6.1 ppg, 5.7 rebounds per game), Kennedy (5.1 ppg) and Dolinar (3.2 ppg).

Returning four starters should help the Eagles contend for a playoff berth.

“Once again the depth in Class 2A presents a challenge night in and night out for all the teams,” Newton said. “We have nine seniors who will work hard and compete well in one of the most competitive leagues in the state.”
