Spartans News · Frosh Boys Hoops Get Big Win

The Spartans freshmen boys basketball got a hard fought win against Sandy on Tuesday night Jan. 16th.  Going into the half the boys had the lead 22-18.  As assumed, Sandy stepped up their full court press and came back in the 3rd to take the lead 38-35.  The 4th quarter started off with the young Spartans going behind by 5.  The starting five, Elliot Hildner, Andre James, Josiah Kuhlman, Nathan Jones, and Slade Shufelt, went back into the game, and the stepped their defense up to another level.  Something that hadn’t been seen all year.  Clutch shooting, first by Jones, then Hildner, Kuhlman, and James.  With Andre draining a 3 pointer with less than 10 seconds left being the final dagger.  This is only the second win of the season.  But its the way they fought back in the 4th quarter that impressed the large back gym crowd.  Hopefully, this momentum can carry through the rest of the season.  Great job young Spartans!
