“I want to start out by saying thank you to our 5 amazing senior leaders. Carter White, Cohen Reiland, Gracin Klimek, Lucas Fuller, and Riley Perleberg we are so thankful for the leadership and mentorship you've provided to our players, coaches, and school throughout your careers,” said B-E Head Coach Trent Hintermeister

Hintermeister added, “On Saturday afternoon we played a competitive game with a talented BBE team. We were able to keep it close for most of the game, but were never able to get the lead. With about 4 minutes left in the game we were down 7 and had a couple good opportunities to hit some open shots, they just didn't fall. Credit to BBE for making things difficult for us throughout the game. I wish them luck as they continue their season in the sub-section championship game.”
