Sentinel's Trio of Transfers Has them Off to Fast Start

Posted: Updated:

The Sentinel boys basketball team was at the bottom of the pack last year in the AA ranks. This year though, they've rebounded quite well, and have the best record of all the AA teams in Missoula, in large part to three new transfers.

The transfer who traveled the fewest miles was Kagen Khameneh, who last year spent time on the hardwood for Sentinel's rival Hellgate Knights, a move he admits was difficult at first.
 
"The Transition, as it went along got a lot easier, and it ended up being one of the best decisions I've made in my life," says Khameneh.

In addition to Khameneh, the Spartans had two Walker's transfer in. Chase Walker previously of Corvallis, and Quaizhon Walker, who came from Mississippi, meaning some new faces on the team, but no one seemed to be upset by the changes.

"They were excited.  When they identify players of that caliber they are excited.  They provided an element of scoring, athleticism, and speed that we didn't have in the past, so they were excited, and the kids just want to do one thing, and that's win," says head coach Jay Jagelski of his teams reaction to the transfers.

"The team just welcomed me in like I was already here, and they treat me like family," adds Quaizhon Walker.

For a team that has already surpassed their win total from a season ago, they don't like looking back, only forward.

"I've seen this team change so much, it doesn't even seem like the same school it's so different, we're listening, working hard, trying to get better every day, and just try to get where we want to be and that's state in March," says Khameneh.

It's especially important for the transfers…who as seniors only have one year to make their mark on the Sentinel program.

"It's very important to me, obviously I want to have a successful season. Our goal is to make it to state and do well in the Western AA. So it's important to me as a senior to have fun and really enjoy the last season of my career," says Chase Walker.

"This is our year. That's how we all see it. We believe we have the team to beat anybody that is on our schedule, so we're trying to prove a point, trying to shock some people," says Quaizhon, speaking of the teams outlook.

    KHQ.COM - Mid August is about the time that we start to see spiders come into our homes, particularly the hobo spider. August and September is mating season for the hobo and that means you may be seeing more funnel-like webs in and around your home. Males are on a mission to find a female which is why they are a lot more active at this time.
