Elks News · Comets Eliminate Elks in District Finals

The varsity boys basketball team traveled to UD Arena yesterday to face the Mason Comets in the 2017 District Finals.  The Elks were attempting to reach the regional for the third consecutive year.

In the first quarter, the teams felt each other out and the quarter ended with Mason leading by one, 8-7.  The Elks caught fire in the second quarter and took a 23-21 lead to the locker room.  The third quarter was just as entertaining as Mason led, 32-31, with just eight minutes to play.  Unfortunately, the Elks could not get their shots to fall and the Comets hit enough free throws to escape with a 44-38 win and end the Elks season at 17-9.

Junior Donnie Shelton led the team in scoring with 13 and senior Keegan Saben joined him in double figures with 12.

Thank you seniors for all the memories these past four years.  It has been a great ride and we wish all of you nothing but the best as you start the next chapter in your lives.
