Junior high cagers claim boys' tourney title
December 18, 2019
Perhaps the Big Sandy junior high boys’ basketball team and their coach were the only ones who thought they could win the district tournament this year.
Even if so, it was enough.
The Pioneers knocked off a Box Elder team in the semifinals that had not lost in three years and topped Big Sandy in the championship game a year prior.
“We talked in the locker room a lot about ‘Do you want to feel like you did last year or do you want to feel different?’” Pioneers coach Thomas Dilworth said.
The Pioneers’ play on the court answered that question satisfactorily with an upset win.
