The Eaton boys basketball team looks forward to getting started on their 2019-2020 season. Last year as a team Eaton had 13 wins and 10 losses, having a win percentage of about 57 percent. Their season came to an end on a loss to Faith Christian 57-54 at regionals in an away game at Delta.

On the scoring side for the reds, they averaged 64.3 points per game with only allowing around 55 points. The leading scorers last season for Eaton included Scott Grable (21) averaging 15.4 points per game, Nic Inda (20) averaging 9.4 points per game, and Ryan Ure (21) averaging 8.8 points per game. Non-returning seniors from the 2018-2019 season were Mason Wilidson, Cody Kessel, and Harrison Zeller. The returning seniors for Eaton include Nic Inda, Bryce Leafgren, Ethan Vannest, Walker Scott, Derek Renfroe, and Spencer Renfroe.

Looking at the goals for Eaton, Coach Grable said, “Just play the best basketball we can every possession, take care of business on and off the floor. One goal I have for our team is always to make the great eight because anything can happen from there.” Going along with goals, challenges aren’t concerning for Grable, “I don’t see any challenges, we just gotta get better everyday and play the best we can every possession.”
