The Cincinnatus Lions had a successful senior night after beating Brookfield 55-30 Thursday night.
Four of Cincinnatus’ seniors (Tucker Latta, Matt Kemp, Kris Loomis and Dakota Stairs) were recognized at last night’s game. As for the cheerleaders, Alayna Holtmart, Athena Nenno, and Alyssa Sherrod were also honored at last night’s game.
With this win, Cincinnatus improved to a 3-13 record.
“This was definitely one of the best games we’ve had since last season,” said Cincinnatus senior Tucker Latta.
The Lions were led by John Schuyler (15 points), Canden Stafford (13 points), and Tucker Latta (9 points).
Brookfield was led by Bryce Smith (19 points) and Drake Alsante (4 points).
“I was encouraged by what I saw,” said Cincinnatus Head Coach Jim Halstrom. “We are going to go to sectionals even though our record doesn’t show that we are that good, but we played well tonight. We played together, and I was really happy with what we did.”
Here a score breakdown from last night’s game:
At the game, members from last year’s team returned to help celebrate last year’s sectional championship victory.
A framed jersey was also given to Coach Halstrom since he also won a sectional championship (Class D section IV) when he played in 1984. Halsrom was a senior that season.
Up next, Cincinnatus will host their last game of the regular season against Stockbridge Valley on Tuesday (February 14th) at 4:30pm.
