I received an e-mail from Bret Rankin, U-B sports editor, earlier this week informing me that Wa-Hi and Mac-Hi would be the focus of high school basketball articles I’ll be authoring for our annual preview insert that will be released in a couple of weeks.
It’s a reminder that the high school hoops season is just around the corner.
The two schools offer an interesting contrast. Wa-Hi represents the status quo in this case – with Jill Meliah coaching the girls team and John Golden leading the boys program.
At Mac-Hi, both the boys and girls teams will be headed by different coaches. Nicole Christian, Mac-Hi’s softball coach, will coach the girls and the boys post is being filled by former Pioneer and WWCC star Curtis Carlson.
Like many, I look to the 2011-12 season with great anticipation.
