November 27, 2018 was an exciting night for Eastern Montgomery, especially for the high school Boys basketball team. Boys basketball had their first official game at home and the opposing team for that night was Bland. JV basketball fought hard, but sadly they weren’t able to keep up with Bland and lost with a final score approximately 11-69. The top 3 performers were Hunter Holland, Gabe Fox and Camren Sampson.

The Varsity game was a very wild one. The game started out with the Mustangs making the first point and being in the lead for the majority of the game. The crowd and the players were yelling every time their respective teams took the ball or scored a point. Bland got ahead at one point in the game, but even then, the Mustangs easily took the lead again. Finally, Varsity was able to win the game with a score of 60-55. Not only was this the first game, but also the first win for Varsity boys basketball after one year! Congratulations to Senior Garrett East with 21 points and 8 rebounds, and Senior Hunter Justus and Sophomore JT Foster both made 10 points.
