High School

Posted On: 06/8/18 2:00 PM

During the month of June, high school basketball ramps back up, with most schools visiting tournaments each weekend. In this article, we take a look at Skyview High School (WA) and what they have going this summer.

Key Players:

Alex Schumacher (2019) is an elite guard coming off of a great spring season with the Rose City Rebels on the EYBL circuit. The reigning 4A GSHL Co-MVP, Schumacher plays with poise as he stretches defenses with pull-up threes or attacks the rim with his athleticism. Kyle Gruhler (2020) is a long, 6’4 wing that made a name for himself last season with his shooting touch. As he gets older and spends more time in the program, Gruhler is getting stronger and more athletic, allowing him to diversify his game.

Summer Schedule:

Week 1: All teams played in the Hoopsource NW Summer Invitational

Week 2: All teams playing in the Titanic Clash, see here for schedule

Week 3: Varsity playing in the War of the Border tournament, while the remaining teams play in the Scappoose Shootout

Week 4: Gonzaga Team Camp

Thoughts from Head Coach Matt Gruhler:

“I really like our team chemistry this summer. Our energy and focus has been great since we started and I think it will pay off this summer and into next season. This group is not as big or athletic as we were last year, but we are more skilled overall and have the ability to do a lot of good things. This summer’s group is bought into Storm basketball and understand their roles and how they can improve as individuals and as a team.”
