Head Coach Wes Greer’s junior varsity boys basketball team finished the season on a high note with a huge 61-25 win over visiting Banks County High School Friday.


The junior varsity Tigers finished the season with an impressive 11-2 record.


“This team has been so much fun to coach,” Greer said. “I hate to see the season end. They are going to be great varsity players real soon.”


The Tigers opened up a huge first half lead, 35-18, and cruised to the 36-point shellacking. The Tiger defense held the Banks’ County offense to only one point in the third quarter.


Twelve different players scored against the Leopards.


Jesse Gee led all Tigers with 11 points.


Gee was followed in scoring by Gunnar Armstrong and Mitchell Putnam with 7 points each, Lucas Pain and Jackson Putnam added 8 points apiece, Steven Stanfill and Camron Chester each had 4 points, Cameron Millholland and Elijah Fitts had 3 points each, Logan Burt and Jeffery Partington finished out the scoring with 2 points each.


“These guys took the team concept and really made it work. Just about every game had a different leading scorer and we averaged 11 players scoring every game,” Greer said.
