The 2018-2019 Boys Basketball team started out strong but struggled with many of its starting lineup hit by injuries at varying points throughout the season. Highlights including taking three talented teams in a row to overtime beginning with a two-point overtime loss at 4A New Albany, a double OT loss to a talented 3A North Harrison team, and an overtime loss at home to Mid Southern Conference champ 3A Brownstown Central.
The team graduates senior Hayden Burke, who led the team in scoring average and rebounds per game. With so many underclassmen gaining experience, the Pioneers will look to work hard in the off-season through increasing strength and skill training. The JV team finished 10-10, while the freshman finished 14-4 with an end-of-the-year tournament victory, so the team will continue to build on those successes.
2018-2019 Season Record: 8-17
