On Wednesday, April 5, the Hillcrest boys’ basketball team got together to celebrate a basketball season that was highly successful. The Comets ended the season with an overall record of 20-8 and a Little Eight Conference mark of 12-4. “What a joy this season was,” said Hillcrest Head Coach Ryan Garvin. “In the heat of the year, it's difficult to appreciate and celebrate even singular moments, so it's a gift to reflect on the season that our boys’ basketball teams had this year.”
