PAWLING, N.Y. -- Coming off a season in which the team went 3-14 and missed the playoffs, Pawling High varsity boys basketball coach Jason Kuhlmann isn't setting unrealistic goals.

But Kuhlmann and the Tigers are looking forward to taking a step forward.

"We're still young, we still only have three seniors," Kuhlmann told Daily Voice. "We have a good group of juniors, and two or three sophomores in the group, so we're still relatively young.

"But no doubt, we're looking to compete," Kuhlmann, entering his fourth year with the team, added. "I think we're a much-improved team, we're bigger, and I think we're much stronger than we were last year."

The Tigers, who play a Class B schedule, will look to seniors Matt Whitworth and Sean Snow to set the tone.

"They're both good athletes," Kuhlmann said. "They'll give us leadership. Snow is a really hard worker, a team player, scrappy... he's gotta set screens for us and do some of that stuff. Matt has got to orchestrate - he's our point guard, and he's got to set the tone, spread the ball and get things moving. So we're expecting a lot from both of them."

Pawling opens the winter season Tuesday, Dec. 1, hosting rival Dover.
