Penn Boys Hoops puts in summer work

The Boys Basketball team traveled to Indiana Wesleyan University to play in the annual Super Hoops camp over the Summer. This team camp consists of many teams from this area along with teams from all over Indiana.

The Kingsmen Boys varsity team started the first day out rough going 1-2 but playing two of the best teams there, including Valparaiso and Columbus North. The Boys came out extremely hot on Day Two going 5-0 and earning the second seed in the Hoops tourney.

Sunday did not go as planned. The Kingsmen played an early game, but lost to Hamilton Heights. Later in the day, the boys played Twin Lakes and won.

In the championship game of the “B”  bracket the Kingsmen lost a close game to the hometown Marion Giants, the defending Class 3-A state champs.

Senior Brian Doslak said “The camp helped us improve a lot and grow as a team. Spending that much time with each other on and off the court helped us build a stronger bond.”

The Kingsmen will continue to work to get better for this year’s season.
