The KMS 8th Grade Red Basketball Team lost at home to Coldwater 32 – 53. The game was much closer than the final score indicated. With only seven players available, the Mounties battled against a deeper, bigger, and faster Coldwater team for almost three quarters until fatigue set in. The game was tied 19 – 19 at halftime. Coach’s Awards go to Nolen Novak and Dylan Leutz. Nolen led the team in scoring, played strong defense, and grabbed a lot of rebounds. Dylan played some valuable minutes at point guard and was a spark plug on the court.
