Capitals look to finish the season strong

Caps basketball is looking to squeak into the state playoffs at the end of the regular season, as making the playoffs has become an expectation for the program.
“We haven’t missed the playoffs in a very long time and I hope we can keep it that way,” head coach Jeff Ferrell said.
The Caps (14-9/7-6 CAP-8) have dropped a couple games lately in the final minutes that could have fallen there way. There record is better than it shows.
Recently, they fell to Millbrook in a close game at home. For the majority of the game, the Caps remained on top and held a comfortable lead due to consistent play from guards like Tyler Palmer and Jalen Finch.
Quick buckets by the Wildcats in the closing seconds sealed the deal in their favor, and they walked out happily with a win.
One thing that the team will look for during their potential post-season run is leadership and support from their seniors Jack Holloway and Jimbo Stanley.
The duo was honored in a pre-game ceremony in Broughton’s final home game versus Enloe.
Holloway expressed his gratitude toward the program in a tweet before tip off.
“5 years ago I watched BHS play for the first time…and tonight I play my final home game.” Both of these players will be remembered and offer much for the basketball program.
Hollway recently received the Coast Federal Credit Union/99/9 Fan’s Athlete of the Month award.
