The Gibraltar girls will open their season at home on Friday against Gillett with a new coach at the reins.
The Vikings ended last season playing some of their best basketball, winning two of their final three games and pushing a tough Niagara team that narrowly lost in the regional final. Following the departure of coach Devin Thomas, assistant coach Evan DeBroux took over the program that has won only five games combined over the past two seasons. When DeBroux leads the Vikings for the first time as the head coach, it will be a proud dad moment for Gibraltar athletic director and high school principal Jim DeBroux. The Vikings are led by Andie Schar, who was leading scorer and rebounder for the Vikings last year.
The Tigers went 15-10 last season, falling to Wausaukee 46-43 in the regional round. Cilena Guns will be back in the fold again this season after being second on the team in scoring with 12.6 ppg and leading the squad in rebounding at 6.6 rpg.
Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m.
