The JV Basketball team wrapped up their season last night at Howard School with a loss to Center Academy. The team suffered through a winless 2018, but showed character and spirit last night that made their coaches extremely proud. Throughout the season, the coaching staff has stressed playing with heart and playing together, and the JV Cougars did exactly that last night.
Down as much as 18 at one point in the second half, every member of the team stayed invested and continued to play as hard as they could until the final whistle. The Cougars cut into Center’s lead, forcing a late timeout as nerves began to set in. However, Center was eventually able to hold on for a win. Despite the string of losses and adversity that the Cougars faced in 2018, they stayed together as a team, and walked out of the gym with their heads held high. The coaches would like to thank the players and parents for their commitment.
Please congratulate all of the players – Javier Cremer, Eric Vogel, Colton Parks, Toby Nwokedi, Tommy Ingle, Kevin Wen, Alex Hoeve, Dalton Lantz, DJ Donaldson, and Roman Lawlor – when you see them today. They had a great season, and their commitment and effort over the last few months have been truly admirable.
