Boys basketball team earns a spot in the All “A” state tournament
On January 25, the varsity boys basketball team won the 7th Region All “A” Championship, defeating Walden 58-48. The Wolverines were a gritty, senior-heavy team, but the young Bearcats battled and showed great energy. The Bearcats were led by senior Nic Roemer, who turned in a strong performance with 22 points, 7 assists, 6 rebounds, and 7 steals. Sophomore William Crockett chipped in 24 points in the win.
Trey Owen contributed greatly on the defensive end of the floor while Ameer Maya controlled the boards with a team high 8 rebounds. A timely 3-point goal by Jack Stodghill sealed the deal and gave the Bearcats a date at the All A Classic state tournament in Richmond. The Bearcats will take on Lyon County on February 17 at 4:00 pm at Eastern Kentucky University.
Coach Anthony Mathis was grateful for the opportunity to play in the tournament. “We are so thankful for our administration, AD, and head of school for putting protocols in place to give us this opportunity, as well as our student-athletes for adhering to the protocols, allowing us to compete during these unprecedented times.”
