The Freshman Spartans Boys Basketball Team brought in the new year in much the same way they ended the old one, with a dominant victory! On Tuesday, January 2nd, the Spartans (4-4 overall, 3-1 ECC) faced off against the Milford Eagles at THS and ran their winning streak to 4 games with a 62-28 victory. Since starting the season 0-4, the young Spartans have strung together victories of 28 pts, 15 pts, 52 pts, and 34 pts. It appears that Coach Mitch Johnson’s club is clicking on all cylinders right now.

After a few narrow losses against Milford (L 0-1) and Lakota West (L 1-2), the Spartans rallied to tie Loveland 1-1 and defeat Seven Hills 2-0. The defense is holding strong led by sophomore goalie, Peyton Hicks.
