Boys finish fifth at district tourney

The Terry team finished their season Saturday morning, in a heartbreaking loss against the Hysham Pirates. The back and forth action found the Terriers trailing early on, but by halftime the hometown team only trailed by one point. Terriers led for a good portion of the second half, but in the remaining three minutes, due in part to missed lay-ups and free-throws the Pirates took over their lead and never let go.
“We worked extremely hard,” Head Coach Casey Klasna said. “I was pretty proud of their efforts.”
The majority of on-court time was played by three freshmen, one sophomore and one senior, Klasna pointed out, noting the Terrier team still has much more experience to look forward to gaining, in upcoming seasons.
“Hysham is an experienced team,” Klasna noted. 
In a game that saw junior player Taylor Pisk injured from a dislocated shoulder and fellow junior teammate Tanner Stickel fouled out in the third quarter, there were few shortages of intense moments.
Hysham’s ability to hit three-pointers at key moments of the game, proved to be a winning advantage over the Terry team.
Stomping and cheering the crowd of purple and white Terrier fans, including the girls’ team, which had just earlier won their match-up against the Melstone team, let their presence be known. 
Hysham came away with a 58 - 49 victory.
