It sounds like someone is simply jealous or does not like Coach Kegley to me. Players who quit simply did not have the commitment to be successful or fight through adversity in life. They said the same thing about Coach Donahue who coached the Varsity Team previously. Westlake will not know what they lost if they removed Coach Kegley.
: It's hard to argue a coach is well prepared and establishing a "winning culture" when his team has a losing record, worse than last season...AND half his team quit because they didn't like playing for him.
: : I challenge you to find a coach better prepared then Coach Kegley at Westlake. It is easy to be a critic from the stands. He has established a winning culture and demands his players (who this year were very average other then PG and injured MacLean) respect the game and play as a team.
: : : Marmonte League played out as predicted - Calabasas dominated, going 7-1 (lost to Thousand Oaks, which they avenged by beating them easily in the rematch). TO was surprising though, good group of seniors, going 5-3 for second place. Oaks Christian underachieved at 4-4 (coaching?) and Newbury Park and Westlake were weak, both going 2-6.
: : : Season end Picks:
: : : MVP - Max Cheylov (CHS), best player on best team, strongest guard in league
: : : First Team:
: : : Matt Solomon (NP), top scorer, not much help from teammates this year
: : : Hunter Thorne (TO), always steady, good team leader
: : : Ramel Lloyd (CHS), best freshman in league, huge potential (will he stay?)
: : : Evan McKay (CHS), reliable scorer and steady defender
: : : Bryce Howard (Westlake), good distributing PG, had few scorers to get the ball to
: : : Second Team:
: : : Hersy Miller (Oaks)
: : : Jordan Berens (Oaks)
: : : Daelen Benioff (TO)
: : : Bryce Kilkenny (Westlake)
: : : Justin Stanziano (TO)
: : : Next season will be interesting - will Calabasas keep all its young talent, or will they fly off to other schools? Can TO restock their talent (lot of graduating seniors)? Can Oaks Christian rebound from a disappointing season? Will Oaks or Westlake replace their coaches? Is there any hope for NP?
