“I expect the boys to compete everyday and work as hard as they can to help the team to the best of their abilities,” said coach Jared Wallace. “Winning and losing takes care of itself.”

After taking a third game loss to the Bears the basketball team looks forward to the rest of the season.

“We could have played better,” said senior Joey Cooner.
