Robert Gjelaj ‘19: The boys varsity basketball team finished off their season with a 7-13 record, a regression from last seasons MAC White Championship team. The Bulldogs failed to meet their expectations and hope to bounce back next season.
The Bulldogs started off the year with a slow start but turned it around for a great finish to the season. The team went on a winning streak but ended up falling short against Oxford High School in the first round of districts 70-59.
This season’s team graduates six seniors whose four years of hard work helped the team raise the program out of the ashes and become respectable to neighboring high schools.
“As it’s coming to an end it feels very surreal because as a freshman and four years playing, I have got very close with this team and the coaches. I knew this day was going to come and I am happy I could leave a legacy,” Blake McRae ‘19 said.
One of the only players with over 1,000 career points scored, McRae looks to continue his competitiveness on the baseball diamond as he remains undecided where to play. Switching his focus back to football Brock Horne ‘19, readies himself to play at Bowling Green State University for the next four years. The rest of the seniors Ryan Heimbuch ‘19, Joseph Gamache ‘19, Brandon Owens ‘19, Chris Rilley ‘19 plan to continue playing the game but at a less competitive level and focusing on there education in college.
As the seniors closed out their careers, many agreed that winning the MAC White Championship last year ended up becoming a very memorable moment.
The remaining team and future players look forward to return as MAC White Champions in seasons to come. We wish the seniors the best of luck to their future and anticipate what future classes will bring to the table.
