Josh Covington lead the way with eight points. Brian Williams and Gavin Bzdil contributed seven points each. Colton Fears and Sam Dusek both scored four points, Cayson Siegley three points, and Breyden White two points.

The boys held New Diana to only four points in the first half of the game,” Coach Steve Gillispie said. “Strong Defense was the big key to the victory. The boys started their season off great and I’m excited to see them continue to improve.”
