ZEBRA ATHLETICS

BOYS BASKETBALL RECAP

The 2014-2015 boys basketball season has come to a close. The team finished the season with a 1-18 record. The success on the court did not show up in the wins and loss record but it did show up in the character of the young men on all three levels as they continued to work hard and compete in every contest. 

On behalf of the coaching staff and team we would like to thank all of those who came out to support our program. From January 19th on, the Zebra's played some of their best basketball during the second half of the season. Coming off there first win in 30+ games, the Zebras played the final game of the Martin Luther King Classic versus crosstown rival the Franklin Warriors in what turned out to be the best game of the day with the Zebras going down in defeat at the buzzer 39-41. In defeat, the Zebras had found a desire and will to compete against everyone they came across from that point on. Leading in every contest only to loose the lead and the game in the forth quarter.

In losing, the program gained character and respect within the conference and among the officials. As in the building of any championship program it takes small strides that eventually lead to the on court success that everyone will notice. The ground work has been laid and the future looks bright as several of the key contributors will be returning next year as well as a solid group of freshmen. It will be an exciting summer as the team will compete in the Odie Paige summer league, and continue to improve on skills and teamwork. 

Again, thank you, from the school administration, security personnel, parents, friends, family, athletic department, fellow coaches and all who supported the boys basketball program.
