Evart boys team sees plenty of improvement
EVART -- The boys' basketball team for Evart High School saw steady improvement during the 2019-20 season and aims for even more success next season.
With a 10-12 overall record (5-11 in Highland-Conference play), the Wildcats increased their number of wins by a total of five games from a season ago.
In the end, the Evart boys finished their campaign at sixth-place in the Highland Conference and were eliminated with a 59-55 loss to Shelby in the District 72 semifinals.
After that final game, Evart coach Kris Morgan said his team "executed when we needed" but ultimately the difference was Shelby's ability to make its free throws when the game was on the line.
Paving the way for much of the Wildcats' success this season was senior and team captain Cameron Brasington, who earned First-Team All-Conference honors.
Brasington led the team in scoring, averaging 14.3 points per game, while also turning in 5.1 rebounds, four assists and two steals per-game.
Fellow-senior Donavin Reagan came down with an average of 6.5 rebounds-per-game and scored an average of 10.4 points-per-game for the Wildcats down the stretch.
Sophomore Haidyn Simmer averaged an even 10 points-per-game and is expected to be an essential part of Evart's plans on the court in the next couple of seasons to come.
Simmer also averaged just north of two assists-per-game.
