Advanced Technology Academy (ATA) Lakers have experienced success in the past. This season, they look forward to matching, or even eclipsing, that previous success. 

Head Coach:  Greg Boler (1st year -2nd stint; 11th season and 9th year as Varsity Head Coach; last time at ATA in 2015-2016 recorded 100th varsity win)

How did last year’s team finish compared to expectations?:

“About where they thought they would, DMAC Champions.” – Coach Boler

Team Outlook:

Expectations:

“We expect to compete out of the gates! We have a lot of young talent, but leadership from our returnees is key. The team chemistry is really good, they hold each otber accountable on and off the court and it will help us down the road. We have an opportunity to do some special things if all the guys, new and old, buy in.”

– Coach Boler

Areas of concern:

“Youth. We are very young in some key areas, but they were battle tested this summer and will be better because of it. We will have three freshman in the rotation.” – Coach Boler

Best case scenario:

“I like our chances to have the best season in the school history because of how we defend individually and as a team.” – Coach Boler

Key returnees:

Anthony Rogers

Zach Mingo

Nate Calloway

Zach Wise

Key Newcomers:

Jayden Williams

Treveris Webb

Shawn James

Clifford Barrow

Chris Boler

Any players with the ability to play at the next level?

“All of our guys will have the opportunity to play at the next level.”

ATA has the talent and depth to have a historic 2018-2019 season. They have all the tools needed to be a dangerous team. ATA is a young but skilled squad, led by All-State caliber players Anthony Rogers and Clifford Barrow. They should battle for the DMAC championship, and have the potential to make even more noise through the month of March.
