On Sunday, April 10, the 2021-22 Comet Basketball team celebrated their great season at their annual awards night. Coach Ryan Garvin reflected on the season from a team and individual perspective noting that the Comets were able to experience a lot of on-the-court success and win a share of the Little 8 Conference Title with the Ashby Arrows.
The Little Eight and Pheasant Conferences had their annual Senior All-Star game this past weekend at Hillcrest Lutheran Academy's Gymnasium. This event first started in 2018 and has continued as something that senior student-athletes really enjoy. The Little Eight Conference team was coached by Ryan Garvin and the Pheasant conference team was coached by Kraig Hunter. The game was close throughout and not a lot of defense was played until the final 5 minutes of the game. With 3 seconds left in regulation there was a half-court shot for the win that just missed going in. When the buzzer sounded it was 90-90 and the first ever overtime took place. The final score was 96-95 in favor of the Pheasant conference. This event provided a ton of smiles, laughs, handshakes and hugs as the players, coaches, and fans were all able to enjoy the night.
The Brandon-Evansville boys’ basketball program held its postseason banquet last week to celebrate another successful season. “We celebrated two amazing seniors, Tyler Bitzan and Titus Fuller,” said Head Coach Trent Hintermeister. “Our program is so much better now because of the contributions these two young men gave to Charger athletics.” Both players, along with Dezmond White, were named to the Pheasant and Little Eight All-Conference teams.
