"We had some great efforts today from our boys, said WHRHS head coach Justin Salton. "We need to keep staying the course and trusting in the process despite some of the adversities we have faced this year. The play of Ryan Keller (5 threes in the first half, 17 points), Noah Allen (16 points and 11 assists), and Gavin DeFuria (13 points) really sparked us offensively. We are now on the back end of conference play and are hoping to string together a few good performances."
