Adding yet another win to their record, the boys’ basketball team is now in a three-way tied for fourth place in District 9-5A after the Redhawks 64-60 win over Memorial on Tuesday night in The Nest. 

“We played really well as a team yesterday,” junior Connor Hulstien said. “We brought really good energy which contributed to our win.” 

Tuesday’s win is the team’s seventh in a row in district play, moving them into the middle of the playoff race. 

“We accomplished the goal of digging ourselves out of our 0-5 hole,” Hulstein said. “The ultimate goal in district is to make the playoffs, so we will have to work towards that now.”

As for the girls’ team, their undefeated District 9-5A record (13-1) is no more as the Redhawks lost 32-29 to the second place Warriors. 

“Regardless of the outcome, I was proud of my teammates for putting up a great fight,” sophomore Jazzy Owens said. “The loss taught us some things about ourselves as individuals, but also as a team, which we will continue to improve as the season progresses.”
