Four. The number of wins the boys senior high basketball team finished with last year, a disappointment to say the least. The sting of a poor season last winter was a huge motivating factor for the them to do better this time around.
“We all knew we could do better and we worked all off season to be better. We all want to play in the Giant center and play in districts,” said senior captain Jamel Foster.
Starting the season off 4-4 the team tied last years win total in just 8 games. But they didn’t stop there, finishing the regular season with a much improved 10-12 record.
Averaging 56 points per game as a team and led by Foster who averages 15.8 points a game himself they fell just a little short of qualifying for districts.
“Our ultimate goal was to win, we just wanted to win,” said Foster. Although coming up a little short of districts they did win 6 more games than last season.
Including a five game winning streak from January 19 to January 26 in which they outscored their opponents 291 to 221. The streak started with a close 55-52 win over traditional rivals Central York.
10-12 is a much better record than 4-18 and who knows maybe next years team can grow even more and keep improving.
