WIC, Northview have new boys coach in former ISU women’s aide

BRAZIL — Northview will try to get its winning tradition in boys basketball going again this season under a new coaching staff.

Clint Weddle, previously an assistant women’s basketball coach at Indiana State, is the Knights’ new head coach.

“It was a privilege to coach the women. It’s no different to have an opportunity to coach these guys,” Weddle said. “We have good kids that are giving their best everyday.”

The Knights have plenty of size returning to help Weddle and assistant coaches Alan Goff — like Weddle, a former Terre Haute North standout — and Chris DeHart, a former Northview standout. Kendall Sheets will coach junior varsity and Tim Sanders will handle the freshman team.

The size for the Knights includes 6-foot-6 junior Jim Mace, 6-5 junior Ethan Whitson and 6-5 junior Daniel Kimball.

“It gives us an opportunity,” Weddle said.

 It’s going to be a plus at the high school level to have a couple, three guys with some good size, and guys that are very skilled as well,” Weddle said. “[Mace] has been a lot of fun to work with. Good defensively, ability to step out and shoot it. [Whitson] has got an ability to play inside and out, great hands, terrific attitude. [Kimball] is a blue-collar kid, works really hard, always around the ball and going to continue to get to the glass.”

Mace said the Knights should be pretty good on the defensive end this season.

“We should be a pretty defensively sound team,” he said. “We’re just worried about getting better every day. The coaching staff is very positive.”

Senior guard Craig Peters gives the Knights some experience returning in the backcourt as well.

“He shot the ball pretty high clip from the 3, and has provided tremendous leadership for everybody to start the season,” Weddle said.

Peters is excited for the season, adding that the team is excited about the new coaching staff.

“They’re motivators,” he said. “They come in every day helping us to get better.”

The Knights will have some newcmers battling to get in the rotation.

Travis Hakman (5-11, Jr.), Devin Clark (6-0, Jr.), Peter Tanoos (5-8, Jr.) and Christian Ellis (6-4, Jr.) are other juniors looking for playing time.

Joe Ball (5-10, So.) and Gabe Rogers (5-10, So.) also are in the mix, Weddle said.

“All have done a terrific job,” Weddle said.

  • Andy Amey: Just a small trip to talk about this time

    To paraphrase Carl Spackler, the heavy stuff’s not going to come for quite awhile. So while it’s true that I’m back from a week’s vacation, it’s not time — yet — for the big vacation column. Trips to Noblesville, Brunswick and Reelsville, while providing some nice family time, don’t really have the cachet to fill newspaper space.
