Our Athletic Director said it best ...Eagles lose a tough one 65-58.

To the young men of the 2013-2014 basketball team:  Thank you.

53 weeks ago, our school had never won a regional title. Now we have won two.

53 weeks ago we had never won a final four game. Now we have won three.

100 weeks ago, 54 wins would have been a great three season run.

54-4, two district titles, two regional titles, one state runner-up and one State Championship.

Though these words will mean little right now, they will hopefully mean much more and I hope it will not take 53 weeks to realize the tremendous accomplishment and the unbridled joy you have brought to us who simply got to watch.

Thanks again,
Mike Roark, BWHS Athletic Director
