Boys basketball


2021-22 season record — 3-1.

Head coach — Antiwon Tucker, fourth season.

Key performers — Angel Torrado, Jr., PG; Drew Eaglin, Jr., SF; Derek Santiago, Sr., SF (transferred from Gulf Breeze HS [Fla.]); DeShaun Nixon, So., SG (transferred from Ramstein, Germany).

Outlook — Pretty much starting over, given the coronavirus pandemic wiping out the 2020-21 season and half of last year. A youngish team, but with some experienced players. Opened with a nine-point win at Okinawa Christian School on Wednesday.


2021-22 season record — 1-3.

Head coach — Jonathan Fick, 14th season.

Key performers — T.J. Reese, Jr., F; Jacob Braud, Jr., C; Troy Harris, So., PG; Luca Lantz, Fr., SG; Jaxson Mullen, Sr., F; A.J. Sablan, Jr., G; Carlos Cadet, So., G; Alex Hye, Fr., F.

Outlook — Like the Panthers, starting over with a young team that has just one senior, Mullen. A Fick-coached team incorporates a full-court game; conditioning and staying healthy will be key. Lost by one point, 62-61, at home Tuesday against a rejuvenated Zion Christian side.

Girls basketball


2021-22 season record — 3-0.

Head coach — Ed Manalac, second season.

Key performers — Destiny Richardson, Jr., F; Nykale Penn, So., G; Marina Sawyer, Jr., F; Ayanna Levi, Sr., G.

Outlook — A young group with just two seniors, but like all the others, hurting from lack of game experience last season on the heels of the COVID year. Good core around which to build, plenty of quickness and speed.


Camp Foster

2021-22 season record — 0-3.

Head coach — Tony Washington, second season.

Key performers — Sophia Grubbs, Sr., F; Jacqueline Mitchell, So., G; Emma Leggio, Sr., G-F; Bella Clark, Sr., G; Sawa Cantave, So., G.

Outlook — Another young group with an eye to the future; many of Washington’s charges have just arrived on Okinawa and expected to stay for a couple of years. A matter of getting in shape and achieving full game speed quickly.



Far East tournament titles — 6, fourth most all-time.

Head coach — Joey Wood, second season.

Key performers — Jeremiah Drummer, Jr., 180; James Kinney, Jr., 148; Josiah Drummer, Fr., 122; Nick Jeanblanc, Sr., 129.

Outlook — A small group of veterans, but a large contingent of more than 40 in the practice room, including four girls. A handful of newcomers that show some promise.


Far East tournament titles — 26, most all-time.

Head coach — Alex High, second season.

Key performers — Hayden Potter, Sr., 158; Godfrey Wray, Sr., 148; Gavin Ocampo, Jr., 122.

Outlook — Another youngish squad, but plenty of numbers in the practice room: 50 have turned out for workouts. Potter and Wray should lead the way; just a matter of who else can turn up their game quickly.
