3rd Place for Boys' Basketball

Three games in three days.  Not an easy task for any team, but the boys’ basketball team went 2-1 in last week’s HSF post-season tournament to finish 3rd place in league play.

After defeating FCS 51-31 on Thursday, the team dropped the next game to top-seeded CCCS. In the consolation game on Saturday, KCS faced a TCS team they had not beaten in two regular season games. However, KCS kept the game close, built a lead, and was able to hold on for the exciting victory, 49-46. 

Coaches credit the players’ execution of their defense as one of the keys to the game.  They also prepared for the tournament by practicing breaking the press, resulting in less turnovers.  In a true team effort, five freshmen players made significant contributions in earning the win, demonstrating growth in their skills and confidence over the course of the season.
