The OVS boys’ basketball team closed out a spectacular season last week with a 35-21 victory over the rival Thacher School in a junior varsity contest.
The victory moved the Spuds’ record to 7-1 on the season, the best showing for the Upper Campus hoopsters in several years.
Junior Philipp Vetter was an unstoppable force, posting yet another double-double with 12 points and 12 rebounds.
Also, his defensive leadership proved to be contagious as the Spuds only allowed one basket and two free throws in the entire second half.
Following the game, junior Jason Chang addressed the season.
“I was really excited coming into this season because I thought we had a lot of good players,” Jason said. “I look forward to playing again next year and maybe go undefeated.”
Coach Brad Weidlich was also very proud of his squad.
“It was a great season to be a basketball coach,” Mr. Weidlich said. “It was amazing to see how greatly the whole team improved both as individuals and as one unit. It was really amazing to watch.”
