The Freshmen A team triumphed over Belton at home on December 8 with a final score of 36-64 and Logan Clark earning nearly half of the teams score by earning 27 points throughout the night. 

“The energy on the court was fast paced and intense,” Clark said. “We have a lot of amazing basketball players that work well together and that can play calm and collective under pressure.”

The Lions took a head start during the first quarter with Clark gaining six, Hunter Stevens earning four and Tay Brown, Kyce Wilson and Ryan Amerson obtaining two each to end the first quarter with a score of 6-16, the Lions in favour. The second quarter was the largest boost for the team as they gained 19 points by the end of the first half with Clark obtaining 12 points, Landon Sisson earning three, and Stevens and Darrian Davis gaining two each to end the first half with a score of 18-35.

“My personal goal is to prepare these guys for varsity basketball,” A team Coach Bradley Washington said. “More importantly, to help these guys become better human beings. I want them to play with discipline, effort, toughness and honor. If they’re not on the court, they’re in the game from the bench encouraging their teammates.”

Starting the second half with a lead of 18-35, the Lions maintained their stamina as Clark gained eight points, Wilson doubling his score to four, and Brown and Rashad Carter earning two each to end the third quarter with an almost half difference of 29-54. Going into the fourth and final quarter, Carter totaled his nights score to seven by obtaining five points, Davis earning four, Amerson and Stevens gaining 2 each with Clark and Wilson totaling one each and the night ending with a final score of 64-36, Lions taking the win.

“My favorite part about playing on the team is playing the sport that I love and representing the Leander Lions basketball program,” Clark said. The team was feeling good about this game and after we won we were excited to win another home game.”
