Rotarians host THS basketball coach

TROY — Troy High School’s basketball season has begun and the schedule is a busy one. Troy Rotary Club hosted Coach Paul Bremigan and three of his players at their November 29th meeting to hear about the plans and goals for the 2015-16 season.

Named head basketball coach at Troy in 2015, Bremigan begins his second season with a more seasoned group of players. The 2014-15 season ended with a 8-15 record but the prospects for this year are much better. He stresses the need for mental toughness with all his players to help overcome a lack of physical height on the team. Bremigan plans to focus on better rebounding as a key to the team’s success this year as they drive toward their goal of winning the Greater Western Ohio Conference (GWOC) North division title.

With 11 players on the varsity, Bremigan will depend on every player to give stable, strong performances game in and game out. He will rely heavily on the three co-captains to provide leadership both on and off the court through communication and a strong work ethic. The team’s goals are simple: (1) win the GWOC North division; (2) win more games than last year; and (3) beat the “team to the north.” For more information, visit
