After a season ending, tough loss in the first round of playoffs, the Sunlake Boys Basketball team finishes their season at a 10-14 record. Compared to last year, this team has extremely improved and stepped up their game. From a record of 3-19 to 10-14 in a matter of one year, it shows a great improvement for Seahawks Basketball. The future is bright, and we hope to see even more improvement in the years to come.  

This year consisted of a very young team, with many sophomores playing varsity. George Clark (Sophomore) is one of them. “This is my first full year playing varsity basketball and it is a much greater difference than J.V. The environment is much more competitive and intense.” George had an unbelievable season this year, scoring a whopping 30 points in one of his regular-season games. He also led the team in steals, averaging 2.3 steals per game. After a much-improved season, George says, “I think this season went pretty well as our record improved a lot from last year, the season could have gone a lot better though as there are obviously some things we need to improve.” Regarding his own performance, he says, “I would rate my performance about a 6, as I was pretty inconsistent throughout the year.” George still has much more potential being only a sophomore. “I believe I can do much better next year as I am going to become much more comfortable.” Aside from all competitiveness, George also enjoyed his time this season, “My favorite part about playing basketball this year is definitely winning since that is just a great feeling, but also the bus rides are where a lot of team bonding went on.” For the team’s future, George says, “I think the team will improve in future years as the team is building a more winning culture and we have a lot of young guys to build upon. I definitely think we can win a district title in the next few years.”
