The last week of the 2015-2016 Boys Basketball was a roller coaster. Nothing was taken for granted. Kingfishers narrowly defeated the LPS Marlins at home on February 17 56-50, leading the score for the entire game. Kingfisher fans were on their most sportsmanlike behavior, and we were triumphant, making us second in the region. On February 20, it was on the playoffs at Heathwood Hall to face the Anderson Christian Lions. Coach Jack and the boys were ready with a game plan of patience, smart work and no fouls. The Kingfishers did a great job, playing their hearts out but the Lions prevailed 61-54. The Lions scorekeeper was amazed at our team, saying, “Y’all have so few subs, the boys had to play the whole game and still they played so hard! I was very impressed with them.”
No kidding! Who wouldn’t be, right? Thanks to everyone who made this a fantastic season, especially to Coach Jack Connell and his able assistant Sean Connell for working with our boys so skillfully, to Rockie Williams who was always there helping in every way and taking video, to the parents and families who lovingly supported the team whether they could be there or not, to Traci Kowalewski for awesome photography, to Georgetown County, First Baptist, Precious Blood and Georgetown Middle School for the use of their gyms, and a big thank you to the wonderful and accommodating staff of GMS. Go Kingfishers!
