Fri, 24 Feb 2012 04:22:17 GMT —
The Edgerton boys basketball season can be summed up in one word: perfection.
For the first time in school history the Bulldogs finished the regular season with zero losses.
"I don't know if it's sank in yet," said head coach Matt Ripke, whose team defeated Delta 59-50 at home on Thursday night. "[I'm] excited for our kids, a great way for our seven seniors to finish their regular season, with a win on our home court."
It was a close game throughout the 3rd quarter, then senior Brody Flegal drilled a long three-pointer to beat the buzzer and shift momentum in the favor of the Bulldogs going into the 4th.
"It felt good leaving my hand...got the team going, got some energy flowing and [we were] able to carry over into the 4th quarter," said Flegal, who finished the game with a team high 16 points.
After the final buzzer, Flegal and his temmates reflected on their historic accomplishment.
"I didn't know what it would feel like, but [it's] definitely a great, rewarding feeling right now," Flegal said.
"I'm honored to be a part of this team and just to go 20-0 for the first time in Edgerton basketball history," said Jacob Adams, who finished with 14 points.
20 minutes away, the Bryan Golden Bears defeated Hicksville 58-36 on senior night.
