Season outlook:  East looks to be among the city teams that could compete once again with others across the state.  Multi-sport athletes (Carter Mick, Lindquist and Johnson among others) will key in helping develop and grow the team this season.  The Spartans add senior and Lincoln Northeast transfer Quin Weatherholt to the team, which will help the perimeter game.    Barton and Dak could pose as problems for opposing teams close to the basket.
