Having a great last season makes it that this season has to be better.

Those are the expectations of Bellwood-Antis junior Nathan Wolfe

“I expect this season to go well,” he said.

Through eight games, Wolfe, a center, is averaging 8 points and 6.8 rebounds per game. In a loss to Tyrone last week Wolfe scored a season-high 15, and he followed that up this week with 9 rebounds in a win over Penns Valley.

Wolfe felt that overall last season went well, although he wasn’t happy with the way it ended in the playoffs.

“We were not happy with how it ended with three straight losses,” Wolfe said.

Wolfe said that this year the team needs to work together and play hard. So far, so good. The Devils are 6-2, with both losses coming out of the ICC to Tyrone.

“Hopefully we’ll be able to make a run in districts and make it state playoffs,” said Wolfe, who expects this year to be a 20-win season.

Wolfe expects other teams such as Juniata Valley and Williamsburg to push the Devils in conference this season.

“There will be some contenders in the ICC that are good also,” he said.
