Hawks, Newman up to the challenge

5

It was midnight, and Indian Trail senior forward Evan Newman was thinking about the Hawks’ matchup with the St. Joseph boys basketball team the following night.

Specifically, he was awake because of St. Joseph star senior point guard DeAndre Johns, the school’s all-time leading scorer and a nightmare for opposing defenses.

So Newman fired off a late-night text to his coach, Al Anderson, and it set the tone for Indian Trail’s 74-61 victory in the Doctors of PT Holiday Classic at Carthage’s Tarble Arena on Thursday night.


ITA boys hold off Tremper

A near-capacity crowd at Indian Trail’s gymnasium got their money’s worth while witnessing the Hawks’ Southeast Conference clash with visiting Tremper on Friday.

The Hawks held on for a 79-78 victory despite the Trojans having a pair of opportunities to steal the win bounce off the rim in the closing seconds.

You are what your record is.

That’s a common expression applied to sports teams, but in the case of the Indian Trail boys basketball team it’s also misleading.

Indian Trail starts with OT setback

Senior guard De-Andre Ross scored a game-high 29 points, but that wasn’t enough for the Indian Trail boys basketball to avoid a 76-73 overtime loss at Grafton in the teams’ non-conference season opener Saturday.

“He can do it all. He can hit the 3 and explode to the hoop,” Indian Trail coach Al Anderson said. “He can go right or left hand.”

Indian Trail boys basketball team out to reverse course

A year after going 21-5 and finishing in a three-way tie for first place at 12-2 in the always competitive Southeast Conference, the Indian Trail boys basketball team stumbled to a 10-13 overall record and 4-10 SEC mark (seventh) last season.

But third-year coach Al Anderson is optimistic that the arrow is pointing up again for the Hawks in 2016-17, especially after most of their varsity players excelled in a summer league program.
