Call them the Road Warriors. The Thacher boys' basketball team traveled to Kern County to take on Kern Valley and left with a 49-36 win." We spent four hours on a bus and it showed in our play early," said head coach Jason Carney. With the score 16-12 at half time, the Toads opened up on offense and began to pull away. "Chris Thomas and Drew Cole were huge for us tonight," said Carney. Thomas finished with 18 points and Cole added 15. Carney added, "Our half court defense was stellar, as it has been all season."
The Toads will hit the road once again on Tuesday to take on Malibu in a quarterfinal match up. Thacher defeated Malibu earlier this year in an intense game.
