Huxley athletes on Central College men’s basketball team

Ballard High School graduates Matt Greenfield (center, 6-8, 180, senior) and Michael Wulfekuhle (forward, 6-2, freshman) are members of the Central College men’s basketball team.

Second-year coach Craig Douma returns six letter winners and two starters from last year’s 10-14 club. Senior Matt Greenfield received all-Iowa Conference honorable mention last year and is Central’s top returning scorer (14.5 ppg) and rebounder (8.3 rpg). The Dutch also welcome back assistant coach Joe Steinkamp, who returns after a one-year hiatus. Steinkamp helped guide Central to a conference championship and NCAA Division III tourney appearance in 2009-10.

The Dutch have won 16 conference titles—including 10 since 1975, more than any other school. They’ve made nine NCAA Division III tournament appearances.

Central played an exhibition game at Drake University Nov. 3 and opens the season Nov. 15 at Monmouth (Ill.).
