LEROY – Brandon Hoaglund, like his Pine River basketball teammates, would prefer to be playing this week. The Bucks were 1-1 in the districts last week and ended a strong season at 19-3.
Hoaglund, a senior, had a strong year for the Bucks, who won the Highland Conference at 14-0. Their last win was an impressive victory over Evart in the district semifinals. The Pine River offense never looked better than in that game.
