In a tough, ILH division II season, our boys varsity basketball team finished 4th with a record of 6-6. Although it did not clinch them a state berth, the Saints still have a chance to play their way into the ILH playoffs.
This has been a learning year for the Saints, adapting to a new coach and many new faces. Junior Isaac Crichton, a first year varsity player explained, “In the beginning there was no connection between the players; there was a lot of individual actions.” Crichton also added, “It’s been very fun and a good way to spend high school.” Sophomore Noah Kurosawa said, “It’s been fun. It was frustrating at times, but it was still fun.”
Reflecting on the ILH tournament, Crichton said, “I feel like we are in a very good position to win a spot in states. We have been working very hard as a team. During the season, we have learned how to work together and buy into our coaches’ system . We are confident in each other and the team is our number one priority .”
The Saints won the first round game in the ILH playoffs against Christian Academy 62-52. They play Hanalani, who had the first round bye, tonight at 5 pm at Hanalani. Let’s support our boys as they continue to fight for the last spot in the state tournament.
