Sasquatch Announce 2009-10 Recruiting Class

The Community Colleges of Spokane has announced its recruiting class for the upcoming season. Following a 20-8 campaign and their second consecutive NWAACC East Region Title and NWAACC tournament appearance, the Sasquatch lost three sophomores and will have six players returning from last year’s squad. In addition, Redshirt freshmen Danny Marshall (East Valley) and Cary Conklin (Clarkston) will return for Spokane. Damal Neil (William Jessup University) and Derek Gianukakis (Lewis Clark State College) are transferring to four-year programs to continue their basketball careers.

Head Coach Clint Hull returns for his second year at the helm of the Sasquatch and although they lost some key contributors, particularly in leadership roles, CCS has signed a solid group of newcomers to reload and attempt another run in the NWAACC East Region.

Point guard Chaz Johnson of Mt. Spokane has committed to Spokane. His father, Bruce, has been the Head Women’s Basketball coach at Spokane for over 20 years. Chaz finished his career with the Wildcats as the all-time leader in career assists, as well as finishing in the top 10 in career scoring while playing for coach Bill Ayers. He was named First Team All-GSL his senior season and was the Regional MVP his junior year in helping lead Mt. Spokane to a State 3A Tournament appearance.

Talented wing Dado Vucak from Heritage High School in Vancouver, WA will compete for a spot right away and will add depth to the Sasquatch on the perimeter. He finished his career with a solid senior campaign averaging 12 points per game to go along with seven rebounds a game earning second team all-league honors. Playing for Coach Josh Downey, he played a pivotal role in helping lead the Timberwolves to a 14-11 record and their first ever District Championship.

Big man Matt Barnes brings athleticism and length to the Sasquatch front line. He finished his senior season at Shadle Park averaging 10.3 points and 6.1 rebounds per game in helping the Highlanders and Coach Tim Gaebe garner a second place finish in the GSL, second place finish at Regionals, and a State 3A Tournament appearance.

Brothers Nate and Ben Frisbie of Lake City High School will also join the Sasquatch this season. Ben, a tenacious guard who averaged 12.8 points per game, and Nate, an athletic swing player who tallied 10.3 points and 9.7 rebounds per game, combined to help lead the Timberwolves to a 16-6 record and Inland Empire League Championship for Coach Jim Winger.

Gardner Torrence of Medical Lake High School will also be joining the Sasquatch. The skilled 6’3” wing is a transfer from Grays Harbor Community College where he played last year. He recorded a season high of 16 points against Highline Community College and a season high of eight rebounds against Tacoma Community College.
