An Ending for the Stags

by Kaylee Beekman

February 23, 2016

The Varsity Basketball team ended their season last night in Lewistown to Peoria Heights. The ending score was 72-56. The boys ended the season with a record of 8 wins and 21 losses. This year was a growing season for the Stags as new head coach, Jason Garber, started his first year as the varsity basketball coach. Garber had many thoughts after his first coaching season ended. “The boys played extremely hard the entire game and unfortunately came up a little short at the end. We scored 42 second half points which is the most we have had all season, we just dug ourselves too big of a hole in the first half to get out of.” As one season ends, Coach Garber is already excited and looking forward to next year.  “Overall the season in my eyes was a successful one. The kids improved tremendously from November to February and I am excited to see what the future has in store for them.” The Varsity team’s season is over, but the Fresh-Soph tournament for the JV squad will begin this Saturday. Come out and support your Hartem Stags!
