Tryouts for the Emery High boys basketball team began Monday and will last until either Wednesday or Thursday.
Head coach Todd Jeffs will return to the bench for the Spartans. Jared Butler will coach junior varsity and Kris Abbeglen will coach the sophomores. Jeffs has been coaching for 31 years.
The Spartans’ first game will be on November 24 at home against Green river, with varsity starting at 7 p.m. Most of their region games will be on Wednesdays and Fridays.
“It’s hard to say how we’ll do this year since we’re starting from scratch,” Jeffs said. “We lost all five of our starting varsity players from last year, but we have a talented and young bunch, so I think we have a chance to get in the mix.”
