The varsity basketball team fell to Cedar Park in the first round of the playoffs 77-66 on Feb. 16. The Knights were down 24-47 at halftime, but made key mistakes down the stretch that cost them the game, according to junior Jake Holmes.

“We missed a lot of free throws,” Holmes said. “We weren’t the team we wanted to be. We made mistakes we normally don’t make. I thought all year we never really played to the level I thought we should have, and that’s the reason our season ended early.”

Seniors were very disappointed in the loss because it was their last high school game, senior Ernie Scott said.

“I didn’t want to make that my last high school game ever,” Davis said. “Ending my career on that note will leave a sour taste in my mouth for a long time.

All year long our goal was to make a deep run into the playoffs, and the fact that we couldn’t reach our goal hurts.

The Knights will lose five key seniors from this year’s team, including Ben Dickey, Matthew Doyal, Willie Mays, John Pass, Ernie Scott and Anthony Williams, and will rely on this year’s junior’s for leadership and ability.

“It’s our time to shine next year,” Holmes said. “We’re all going to put in tons of work in the off season so we can meet our goals for next year.”
