The wait for Gilles Etrick Trempillo High School’s Cody Schmitz to return to the basketball court comes to an end on Tuesday night.
Schmitz, who averaged 30.2 points a game and has 987 points over two seasons, leads the Red Hawks into a freshman season with a non-conference game in Sparta.
Schmitz made seven 3-pointers and scored a career-high 61 points while grabbing 14 rebounds in an 82-67 win over the Spartans last season.
GET brings back nearly every player from the 11-14 team from last season, and senior guard Will Mack (9.1 ppg) leads a group that will be more experienced around Schmitz. The addition of new guard Mason Brone is also expected to give the Red Hawks a huge boost in the Coulee Conference.
Schmitz earned high honorable mention for the AP All-State teams last season and scored at least 40 points four times to grab 15 double-doubles.
