Sports: Chimacum High School boys basketball preview

CHIMACUM — Fifth-year coach Bob Thompson returns to lead the Chimacum High School boys basketball team, which enters the season without seven seniors from last year.

Robbie Andrus, a two-time Nisqually League MVP now playing at Willamette University in Salem, Ore., is the most notable loss.

Thompson turns to a mix of youth and senior leadership.

Freshmen Stephen Grey (6-foot-1 guard), Arlo Evasick (5-11 guard), and Aaron McWilliams (5-10 guard) will join seniors Jesse Fisher (5-10 point guard), Grant Jones (5-11 guard) and Sam Evasick (6-2 forward) on the court.

“We’ve got some players that we feel are very capable of putting some points on the board,” Thompson said.

Grey will be the first freshman to start under Thompson at Chimacum, the coach said.
