The middle school girls and boys A teams ended their season with road losses in the first round of the conference tournament Monday. The sixth seeded boys fell, 60-31, at number three Magellan. Reid Seck and John Hauser each had 10 points. “We cut an 18 point halftime deficit to 12, but couldn’t get any closer,” said coach Jonathan Coley, whose team ended 6-7.  “It was a good group and I enjoyed coaching them.” The fifth seeded girls trailed 17-4 at halftime at NRCA and 23-9 after three quarters. A frenetic fourth quarter comeback fell just short in a 23-21 defeat. Anne George hit back-to-back three pointers to key a 12-0 run that brought the vistors within two points, but the Knights held on to win. “I had a great time coaching these girls,” said first year coach Robert Eastmann. “They bought into what we coached them to do and tried their best.” George led the Warriors, who finished 4-8, with six points. Samantha Leshnock and Haley Stoltz added four each.
