Spartan boys' basketball
Coach: Matt Perachi, 12th season.
2008-09 results: 15-10 record; won the Berkshire League tournament; qualified for the state class 'S' tournament.
Coach's outlook: "We will try to blend our returning, experienced players with our large group of younger players who are experiencing varsity competition for the first time this season. Our level of success will depend largely upon how quickly we learn our roles and adjust to the pressure, physicality and speed of varsity competition. Nonnewaug seems to be the preseason Berkshire League favorite, returning a tremendous amount of talent and experience. Litchfield, Terryville and Wolcott Tech also appear to be early-season contenders for the league title. Among our key returning players are juniors Carter Moots, who averaged 9.7 points per game last winter, Eric Hungerford, Joey Guliano, Brett Burmann and Jesse Steinmetz."
Juniors: Bob Burmann, Joey Guliano, Eric Hungerford, Carter Moots, Jesse Steinmetz.
Freshmen: Lucas Guliano, Dylan McAward, Kellen Rikoff.
