The MHS men’s basketball team has unfortunately had their season ended after a 68-44 loss in the 4A state championship to Mead on Sunday.

 

Montrose shot an mere 35% from the floor, as well as going 1-for-7 from three. Montrose also had 17 turnovers and just three assists, a season-low. It’s the first game this season the Indians had under 10 assists.

 

MHS junior forward Ashden Oberg lead Montrose with 17 points, followed by junior Luke Hutto with 13.

 

“I was proud of the way we fought back and cut down it four at half,” MHS head coach Ryan Voehringer said. “We had some crucial turnovers to start the second-half and they extended the lead to double figures and we just could never recover.”

 

Unfortunately the Indians’ season has come to an abrupt end, but with six juniors returning next year, as well as two sophomores, the Indians will hopefully be future state title contenders.
