Winning a Regional Championship topped off one of the most successful seasons the Maroa-Forsyth boy's basketball team has had in over a decade.
Coach Aaron Ennis says his team set out to win a Regional this year and was very proud of his team for hitting their stride at the right time down the stretch.
Coach Ennis felt one thing that made his team so tough this year was the fact they had great balance among their starting five. He notes they did play some higher scoring games but believes that's a product of the style of basketball they play.
Consistency was something Coach Ennis takes note of that his team was able to figure out during the course of the year. He explains his team votes on a 'Trojan Pride' award where the kids vote on a teammate that goes above and beyond for that award. Six different players received a vote for that award and he believes that shows the buy-in for the program.
Coach Ennis says around the start of May they will return to the gym and get to work again. He wants to focus on getting his players that are going to have to fill roles for three departing seniors to start to get some reps and continue to build on the culture of winning.
The Trojans finished the season 19-12 overall with an overtime Regional championship win on their home floor late last month.
