Tom VanErp has some important pieces in place for the start of the 2011-2012 basketball season. The head coach of the Wadena-Deer Creek Wolverines has three returning starters on his roster. Back for the coming campaign are senior shooting guard Ryan Redfield, senior center Ben Birch and junior point guard Evan VanErp. Redfield not only shoots well from the perimeter according to VanErp, he is a tough competitor and led the team in charges taken last year. Birch, who 6-4 is the team's tallest player, has good speed for a post and will give the Wolverines a strong rebounder.
