Senior boys revered before lopsided victory

Alta-Aurelia boys’ basketball team honored seniors Tyler Hanks, Chandler Damewood, Aric Stephan and Zach Issa and played a complete game on both ends of the floor in a 69-45 win over Manson-Northwest Webster (MNW) Jan. 25.

“Overall, we were much more aggressive on both ends of the court. Our guys were able to get out and run in transition right off the get-go,” said A-A coach Evan Franzmeier. “We were able to gain a decent lead at 20-6 after the first period.

Then, we were to able to play much more loose. We rebounded very well, with 47 rebounds to their 17. We really wanted our guys to get to the free-throw line, which we did, 20 times, making 15.”
