Boys A basketball blazes through winter season

In the Middle

The boys A basketball team sped through the winter season with an impressive 7-3 record. “The team this season was a group of kids that worked really well together, and believed in each other,” Head Coach Matthew Kocay said.

Eighth-grader guard Cooper Schumacher said he thought this season was fun. “It was a good season. It was fun. I did not want it to end,” Schumacher said. Coach Kocay said he believed that the team this season played many good games, but thought the team’s last game of the season was their best, when KO beat Renbrook for a second time by a score of 58-38.  “I love how we dominated Renbrook our second game around,” Coach Kocay said.

Although Coach Kocay thought that the second Renbrook win was their best, a couple of individual players had their best games against other opponents. Eighth-grader guard Devin Wolff felt that he had a great game against Solomon Schechter. “Definitely Solomon Schechter, cause we played very well as a team. It was also one of my highest points scoring games,” he said.

Eighth-grader guard Jacob Joseph felt that his best game was against Foote. “I was a threat on defense, and even though it wasn’t my most high points, I only had 14 that game, I had a good game,” he said. The team will be losing a lot of strong players next year, when all the eighth-graders move on to the high school.  “Some of the seventh grade boys will need to step up and bring in quality leadership skills. I think Jack Decker and James Livingstone would have to be the ideal two leaders,” Schumacher said.
