The 2013-'14 edition of the Shelby Whippet boy's basketball team could be described as almost a clean slate. Coach Troy Schwemley who's team finished at 12-9 in all games and 6-4 in the NOL (3rd), welcomes back just one letterman from last season in senior Tristan Kehres. For the 6'2" 250 lb. Kehres, he says it feels a bit strange from a season ago when he was looking up to five seniors looking to them to lead the way, now he will be the one that younger players will be looking to. The Whippets have been without Kehres for most of the preseason as he rehabs a shoulder injury from the teams final football game of the season at Loudonville. The Whippets do have two players who limited playing time on the varsity level last season in Lucas Bihl and Brandon Synder, but most will be new to the varsity. Shelby will open the season at home on Friday, November 29th in a new gymnasium against the Madison Rams.
