The boys’ basketball team went into Thursday night with confidence that they could pick up their first win of the season. They were scheduled to play the East Knox Bulldogs at their home close to an hour away. Heading into the game the Flames would have a record of 0 and 10, without Jared Mount the team was 0 and 8. Once “The Chosen One” had arrived the scores became closer and would eventually lead them to a win over East Knox. It was a hard fought and close game, but in the end, the Flames would pull out the win 38 – 35. Ethan Barry and Jared Mount would go on to lead the scoring, both players putting up 13 points. Ethan would take over for the team in the third quarter and he would leave it to Jared to finish what he started. This makes the record 1-10 and gives a boost of confidence to the boys for the next game.

Jared Mount had this to say about the game “We were feeling pretty confident because we had been so close in the last couple of games, we knew if we executed the game plan that we would be given the opportunity to get the first win of the season… which we did #humblegrind”

 

The Lady Flames were ready going into Monday’s game against Village Academy. It was Senior night for the girls; honoring Lydia Beare, Ashley Maiyer, and team manager Payge Whitesel. The ladies would go on to absolutely crush the Village Academy girls ending with a final score of 51-35. Seniors Lydia Beare and Ashley Maiyer stepped up leading the team in points; Lydia had 12 and Ashley had 13. Sophomore Elle Schmitz had 10 points as well, adding her into the double-digit category.

Senior Lydia Beare weighed in saying, “It’s all about our confidence. When we played with confidence we got the results we wanted, it’s as simple as that.”
