Coach: Doug Rines (fourth year)
Last year's record: 6-12
Returning players: Seniors — Austin Dooley (6-0 guard/forward), Alan Hedrick (5-10 guard), Trevor Averill (5-10 guard), Cody Barker (6-2 center), Chase Barnes (6-0 forward); Juniors — Jacob Bailey (5-11 forward), Scott Pierce (6-0 forward/center); Sophomores — Mitchell Smith (5-8 guard), Kyle Chabe (5-9 guard), Robert Rowe (5-10 forward).
Key loss: Kasey Robertson.
Promising newcomers: Sophomores — Micah Madore (5-10 forward), Jonah Williams (5-10 guard/forward).
Outlook: The Bucks endured a rare season without a trip to the Class D playofffs, but don't expect it to become a streak. Buckfield returns four starters, including point guard Averill and co-captains Dooley and Hedrick. Though there isn't a lot of size, Buckfield will compensate with experience and athleticism. A summer schedule loaded with Class B and C opponents should pay dividends.
Coach's comment:"We are playing with a selfless attitude and have the ability and confidence with our senior leadership to have a very successful season." — Coach Doug Rines
