The Corvallis Spartans are coming off a nice season in 2018-19, and they are positioned to be a big factor in the Mid-Willamette Valley Conference this year...  Corvallis likes to play a fast-paced game, but can also play a half court game when a particular opponent or situation dictates that.  "We will play an a aggressive half-court defense switching between man and zone," said Coach Ross Duerfeldt.  "We are a quick team that can push the tempo and defend.  We execute well on both ends.  We are not the biggest team (outside of 7'3" Jasper Reinalda) but will exert maximum effort.  We can struggle with communication on the court at times and overthink what we need to do."  In Reinalda, the Spartans definitely have a centerpiece around which to build their attack, and his size is formidable for high school or any other level for that matter...  A sure-fire Division I prospect, Reinalda has a nice touch around the paint, and has improved his conditioning, agility and footwork heading into his senior year...  For the CCC, Corvallis will look to compete every time they step on the floor and put themselves in position to win games, as well as gauge where we are as a team early in the season against high quality opponents.  "The potential for this team is very high," noted Coach Duerfeldt, "and if we stay healthy we should give ourselves a shot at our league championship and move onto the state tournament and be competitive with top teams."
