Summit Charter High School boys basketball team took on Next Charter on the road on Tuesday and ended up losing by over 20 points.
Coach Jeremy Robinson said losses like this can be difficult on players, especially the middle school players who stepped up to play, but the Bears never quit throughout the game.
“It’s tough when you get behind like that. I always just ask them to compete,” said Robinson. “When it comes down to it, you play to compete and have fun so go out and enjoy it. Compete with yourself on every play, learn from mistakes and move on. Only play that matters is the next.”
He added that Summit Mo Blackburn had a great game and leads by example the way he works, regardless of the score.
The loss was coming fresh off the heels of Summit high school girls basketball team’s inaugural game that ended with the Lady Bears victorious. Robinson said it’s been a great inaugural high school season so far and the future is bright.
