Key Returnees
Sharpshooting senior Sean Carlson leads the Sailors back into the 2016-17 season. Carlson is the leading returning scorer at 6.6 points per game. Carlson shot 83.7% (36-43) from the foul line and connected on 31 three-point attempts. Senior Aaron Armstrong also is back after scoring 3 points per game (2.7). Junior Zach Urey will look to find a bigger role this year after scoring 2.5 points last winter. Urey also made 16 of 22 free throws (72.7%).

Outlook
This is the same Lakeview program which won 55 games within a three-year stretch (2010-11: 15-7; 2011-12: 19-7; 2012-13: 21-5). After enduring two losing campaigns, the Sailors went 13-9 last year before falling to Fairview (53-46) in overtime in the District Quarterfinals last February. The team’s top three scorers (Matt Partridge, 10.8; Jake Doddo, 10.1; Austin Rice, 7.1) have all since graduated.
