The Kokomo boys basketball team got off to a terrible start on Tuesday in the opening round of sectional falling behind 10-0 in the first quarter to conference opponent Harrison and were never able to get going. The Kats lost to Harrison 68-43 to finish the season 8-16.
The Kats were led by sophomore Bobby Wonnell scoring 12 points and grabbing three rebounds. Junior R.J. Oglesby added 11 points and four rebounds. Junior Jackson Richards added six points and eight rebounds.
The Kats coaching staff would like to that Wildkat Nation for their support throughout the season. While we didn’t have the record we would have liked, our fans have been fantastic all year long and the coaching staff and players can’t thank you enough! We would also like to thank and wish the best of luck to our two seniors: Savion Barrett and senior manager, Vicky Qiu.
As silly as it sounds to say after a season like this, I really feel like we are close. As we continue to define what is really important on winning teams and what isn’t, young guys and first year varsity players have had a chance to learn through this season of adversity and become better players and teammates. Building a culture of high expectations and work ethic is hard, and I look forward to an offseason of hard work and improvement and getting Kokomo Boys Basketball Program back to its rightful position as one of the state’s premier programs!
Thanks again for all your support and Go Kats!
