Jason Kremer a boys basketball coach was very impressed by the success of the team

 

“Being ranked in the state throughout the year at times was another thing that was kinda cool to see because a lot of schools up north don’t get a ton of recognition in the state rankings,” Kremer said.

 

Kremer also said that they accomplished some things that are very tough to do

 

“Undefeated in conference is tough, we did accomplish this year so I was, I wouldn’t say surprised but I thought that was pretty awesome goal that we accomplished was undefeated in conference”

 

Kremer later said that the seniors we a huge part in the success of this team

 

“Our seniors played a huge role we had 3 seniors in the starting lineup with Owen, Reese, Comer and they were some of our best players and we had a couple seniors that came off the bench and played a significant roles too, like Quade and Jared came off the bench”

Having a strong and solid mental state when playing sports gives you an edge over some other players. Laggis talked about what changed mentally with seniors this year versus seniors from the past.

 

Laggis talked about the seniors mentality this year, “I think that the seniors this year mentally realized that there was a much deeper team and we have some young guys that can score.”

 

He also added how the confidence and work ethic was better than past years. “I think that this group brought a level of confidence that they knew that they could accomplish more than what we have in the past years. The confidence and the work ethic during practice are what they mentally brought in and it transferred down to the other players on the team.” Laggis stated.

 

When asked what changed the success this year versus past, Laggis said, “For sure depth, we had more depth on our team we were able to run three lines consistently in games which was huge versus having a short bench,” Laggis also added, “Ineligibility and dodging the sickness bug were big keys.”

 

“I just think that the overall attitude and work ethic was a whole click above from where it has been for a long time.” Laggis stated.
