Boys’ basketball teams ready to hit the court

(Continued)

BROWNSBURG —

Weavers’ success came at Western High School where he guided his teams to sectional championships in 2003, ‘04, ‘06, ‘07, ‘11, and ‘12, with a regional title coming in 2004.

Most any transition has its drawbacks and comes with a feeling out period between the players and coach, but so far, everything seems to be on track for everyone.

After being approved in late April, Weaver has been able to spend some quality time getting to know the players and seeing them play in five shootouts during the summer months.

“The adjustment period has went pretty well,” Weaver said. “I’m a big believer that players must know what their role is for the team to be successful.”

Seniors Luke Jones, Josh Courtney, Tim Baute, Jake Jay, and Jon Aldridge can make a difference for the Quakers this season. The five seniors will attempt to have the first winning season in their campaigns as Quakers.

Jones is Plainfield’s leading returning scorer, averaging 12.3 ppg last season, with Courtney at 8.1 ppg, and Baute at 6.8 ppg. Baute and Courtney are the Quakers’ best returning rebounders and Jones is the leading assist man from last year.

“Aldridge is a very responsible young man ... a guy that’s a good vocal leader for our team,” Weaver said. “All five of our seniors must provide leadership. Some are more quiet in nature and must lead by example.”

Taking the floor with the ability to make an immediate impact for Plainfield is 6-foot-5 junior Bobby Jensen, who was injured last season.

Weaver also pointed to sophomore Will Williams as a “guard that has the skill set, athleticism, and strength to be successful.”

Weaver assembled a staff that includes Kevin Koontz, Derek Dant, and Joe Hoffman. Koontz spent the last eight seasons as an assistant at Bloomington North and Dant is the P.E. teacher at Plainfield. Hoffman, a health teach at Plainfield, will take control of the freshmen team.
