Hornets Fall on Senior Night

In their final game of the regular season, Proctor's boys' varsity basketball team hosted Tilton School in a Lakes Region and NEPSAC AA contest. Riddled with injuries, the Hornets did their best to fight against the Rams, but were simply unable to muster the energy and execution necessary to hold off a hot-shooting Ram squad. The Hornets fell behind early 2-16 after missing nearly every shot they had in a bizarre sequence of possessions, and the team was unable to every fully rebound. Trailing 22-43 at the half, the Hornets cut the deficit to single digits in the second half, but never could truly close the gap, and eventually every member of the team played minutes, including senior Ben Levisay '19 getting hot from outside in his final game in a Hornet uniform and tallying 10 points. Bol Akot '20 led the team with 24 points. Following the game, seniors shared words of gratitude to their parents, teammates, and coaches, and we were all reminded that taking part in high school athletics is not all about wins and losses. Yes, they matter. Yes, seasons are more enjoyable when there is greater balance to the wins and loss column, but we do this for the relationships we are able to form, for the family that is created through shared experiences (good or bad). Thank you to our players for leaving their hearts on the court all winter and for showing us what true character looks like. Here's to getting healthy in the off-season and returning for the 2019-2020 campaign with renewed vigor.
